Facebook to offer more account history info to users

If you use Facebook a lot, you may not be aware of how much activity you have generated on the service on a daily basis. Today, the company announced that it will soon offer more ways to see how much activity you have made on your account. A post on Facebook's privacy page outlines those plans to let users download more information about their account.

Facebook first allowed its users to download facts about their account in 2010, including what photos, posts, and messages you may have shared on the service along with a list of your Facebook friends and your chat conversations with those friends. Today Facebook said, "Now you can access additional categories of information, including previous names, friend requests you've made and IP addresses you logged in from."

All of the new personal account information will be gradually rolled out to Facebook users via its Download Your Information feature, which is located in a person's Account Settings. The company didn't say how long it would take for these new features to be made available to all of its subscribers, although it did say that more categories of information would be offered to Facebook users sometime in the future.

Gee, wonder what other information they have logged. Probably everything, eh? Interesting.

The CIA has full access to your facebook info, much less your own city manager. They were questioning my bro about some pics I took with a (fake) gun on halloween. We wondered how they got my pictures in a private album/private account setting. Me thinks it's owned by CIA anyway.

I can see ANY picture on facebook... no problem... private album or not... all the CIA need to do (which is what im sure they do) is scan the photos with an auto recognition ... (for example googles search where u can put in an image URL and it will find simular ones) ... so yea facebook pictures are not safe.. ANYONE can see them, and finding out who they belong to is simple URL reverse engineering
