Facebook now lets you download and save all your photos, videos, posts on your wall, your messages, your friend list and other content you have shared on your profile in a single download.
To start this process follow these steps:
1. Log into Facebook
2. Click “Account” in the upper right and select “Account Settings”
3. Scroll down to where it reads “Download Your Information” and click “learn more”
4. Then click the green “Download” button.
They will then send you an email when they have packaged up your info. It took about 2 days for me to recieve their email.
This is a sample of the email you will receive:
