According to Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO, all users would have the ability to download all information that have posted or uploaded on facebook.

artwales…  we’ve built an easy way to 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.

If you want a copy of the information you’ve put on Facebook for any reason, you can click a link and easily get a copy of all of it in a single download. To protect your information, this feature is only available after confirming your password and answering appropriate security questions. We’ll begin rolling out this feature to people later today (October 6,2010), and you’ll find it under your account settings.

Downloading your profile in this way does not delete it from the site, but simply provides you with a copy you can view offline. Can anyone confirm if this feature has been enabled in his account, just checked mine, nothing yet.

    Nothing on mine yet, either.

    Just curious – is such download functionality available on google / yahoo mail?

    If not, they should probably borrow this leaf faster than NOW!

    All you need do is to click on account, then account settings, the 2nd to the last entry "Download your information" is what you are looking for.

    It really works!!

    I checked it under Account Settings.
    It takes some time for Facebook to prepare the download, after which they send you an email informing you that the download is ready. I'm downloading mine right now.
