Did you know you can download a copy of all the information, including photos, videos, wall posts, messages and friend list that you have put on Facebook?

Facebook says: “In addition, downloading a copy of your information may come in handy if it only exists on Facebook. For example, you may have lost your mobile phone, which contained many photos you took using that phone. If you had uploaded those photos to Facebook, then downloading your information lets you get copies of them back on to your computer.”

What do you think … Is the fact that Facebook has stored this information on you a good thing?
