Facebook continues to improve on data portability issues. On The Media spoke last week to an Austrian student sent a thousand-page data dump when he asked Facebook for his personal data under EU law. Today, when you ask, Facebook sends you a form email (text below). You’re still not getting all of your data, but your self-service options are more complete and easier. Data you can download includes your profile and much of your activity, including off-Facebook “likes.” How useful and reusable is the downloaded data? I don’t know; if you try, please ping me and I’ll update the post. Meanwhile, Facebook’s Data Access Request Team writes “We expect to have a new tool with additional categories of data to download available in the next few months.” Here’s hoping the new downloads come with specs so third-parties can put your archive to work.
