Download Facebook Account 's Information and Pictures

Great news of all facebooker!! As we know, Facebook is the most popular social networking site that has improved upon its features.

You know what?!!

It now allows you to download all your account information at the click of a button!!!!

Actually, this GOOD thing has been requested by users for years and finally, Facebook has introduced it.


The download will be in .zip file containing all of your profile pictures, wall posts and videos.
Your messages, friend list, photos, events, likes ( and almost everything you have ever uploaded on Facebook )also will be included in the downloaded zip file. Upon unzipping the downloaded zip file, you will find a simple HTML file of your profile with offline links to the above stated things.

P/s: Dont be afraid yet! This will not delete your facebook profile. It will only serve as a backup and a leisure activity for you.. :)

You can simply download your account by following the steps given below:-
  1. Login to Facebook.
  2. Click on the down arrow at the right side of the top navigation bar.
  3. Navigate to Account Settings.
  4. Click on Download a copy of your Facebook data at the end of the page.
You are done!!

You might been saying, "HEY!! YOU CANT DOWNLOAD MY PROFILE!!"
Dont worry guys.. Facebook has its own additional security for every single thing that they do/did.

Anyway, before the download submission, you have to enter your security question and confirmed your password. Although this will be a good feature, Facebook will offer no way to re-import this information from your hard drive to your account or to a new account, if you wish to take a little break from Facebook.

Note: This feature is still not available on Facebook and will be available shortly as soon as Facebook completes testing it. I will update this post when this feature is publicly available.

Update: You can download your Facebook Account now as this feature is publicly available.
