I know you’ve been wondering whether to join Elon Musk and Brian Acton in the #deletefacebook squad or keep using Facebook, either ways I think you should have a look at the data Facebook has about you first.
I’ll be honest quitting Facebook isn’t that easy! Especially, when you have different reasons to stick to the blue network – groups, old friends, and more.There’s one easy method to get hold of the data Facebook has stored over the years you been on the platform. So, let’s have a look at what the company knows about you.
Here’s what you need to do to download all the data Facebook has stored
Step 1. First of all, sign-in to your Facebook account from your desktop or activate desktop view on your mobile browser and then go to your Facebook Settings page.
Step 2. You need to look carefully at the General Section, there you need to click on “Download a copy of your Facebook data”
Step 3. Now you will be redirected to another web page, where you need to click on the “Download Archive” button.
Step 4. You will be asked to enter your Facebook password and the download will start automatically. Or the download link will be sent to your email.
Once you got the Facebook data, you need to open the ZIP file and then run the HTML file called index. This will open up in your web browser where you can view all your Facebook data.
Well, the Facebook data file contains your profile information, messages, videos, photos, timeline posts, friends list and much more. Not only these, it also shows your Facebook sessions, connected apps, advertisement topics that are related to you.
Nevertheless, I am definitely not quitting Facebook.
