What data does Facebook have on you? A staggering amount if youâ€™ve been using the service for a while. Fortunately, the social network makes it easy (if not straightforward) to find out exactly what information it has about your activities, and even lets you download your Facebook data. Hereâ€™s how.
Before you begin, make sure youâ€™re logged into your Facebook account in your web browser. If youâ€™re not, this wonâ€™t work.
Once thatâ€™s done, head over to the â€œYour Facebook Informationâ€� section of Facebookâ€™s account management options. You can do it the easy way by simply following this link, or the more tedious way by clicking the downward-pointing arrow at the top-right corner of the page and selecting Settings & Privacy > Settings > Your Facebook Information. The companyâ€™s Help Center page on â€œAccessing & Downloading Your Informationâ€� also provides handy links to the various resources available in the Your Facebook Information page.
