The world’s biggest social network has hardly been out of the news lately following its purchase of Instagram, so some of you might have missed the company’s announcement that Facebook users are now able to download a detailed history of their account activity. Here’s the full statement:
“Starting today, you will be able to download an expanded archive of your Facebook account history. First introduced in 2010, Download Your Information lets you get a copy of what you’ve shared on Facebook, such as photos, posts, messages, a list of friends and chat conversations. Now you can access additional categories of information, including previous names, friend requests you’ve made and IP addresses you logged in from. This feature will be rolling out gradually to all users and more categories of information will be available for download in the future. Download Your Information is available from your Facebook Account Settings.”
And as if Facebook doesn’t already know enough about its users, we also learned recently that around a quarter of all Facebook users are adding location data to their posts each month
Finally, socialbakers have released their top Facebook Pages in the UK Q1 2012 report. The report delivers the rankings of the most popular, engaging and responsive UK brand and media pages on Facebook. In terms of fans, confectionery dominates the top ten,with Cadburys Creme Egg, Wispa and Maltesers making up the top three. Time for a snack methinks.
