Facebook has launched a new feature called "Download Your Information" that, according to Facebook, lets you "quickly download to your computer everything you've ever posted on Facebook and all your correspondences with friends: your messages, Wall posts, photos, status updates and profile information."

The feature will begin rolling out on Wednesday, October 6. To take advantage of the new tool, go to "Account," then "Account Settings" followed by "Learn more" next to the "Download Your Information" option. After this, click the green "Download" button. You'll receive an email when your information is ready for download.
