Facebook: Exporting your data

Last week, I wrote about Twitter, that I’ve stopped posting there, and how I went about exporting my posting history. I actually made a similar decision with regards to Facebook back in the end of June. Like I did with Twitter, I also grabbed a copy of my data on Facebook – here’s how:

  • Click your account picture
  • Go to Settings & privacy > Settings
  • Click Privacy
  • Click Your Facebook information
  • Find “Download profile information” and click View
  • Specify the date range and what to export
  • Scroll to the bottom, and click “Request a download”

As with Twitter, it can take a while to generate the download.
