Downloading or re-gathering your data from Facebook has become easy and simpler now. If you have missed any of your important data in Facebook and you are finding it difficult tracing it back, do not worry. Here is the answer. Facebook has come up with a new download button that will get all your data in one single zip file.
This zip file will have almost everything ranging from your messages, your photos and even the videos that you uploaded previously. The “Download Your Information” button in the Account Settings page will allow you to get everything back. However, there are still some things that you will not get into the zip file.
Following are the things that your zip file may not include
Email Addresses of your Facebook Friends
You may have friends who currently exist in your Facebook friend’s list, yet you will not be able to get their email addresses in the zip file. Most certainly, it is an important piece of information that has missed the bus, but not without reasons. Facebook APIs do not provide any ways to expose the contact details of your friends. However, there is still a way out, which is absolutely legal.
With the help of Yahoo! address book, you can import the entire data of your friends in your Yahoo! address book. Sign in with your Facebook account. You can then use the data according to your requirement.
Facebook has a very neatly designed phonebook that comes armed with names and phone numbers of all the friends who have shared them. This vital info will not be available in the zip file. But yet you can lay your hands on it quite easily. For that, you will have to visit the link – http://m.facebook.com/friends.php?p Once logged in, save the entire as page as a text file.
To make things easier, import the file either in Google Docs or simple as an Excel file. Cut down on the unneeded text and what remains is a pretty list with names accompanied by the phone numbers.

Find Out When Friends Unfriend You On Facebook
Your Photos Uploaded by your Friends
Even if you feature in any of the pictures on Facebook, it does not mean that they will be a part of the zip file at all. The reason is you have not uploaded those images and so they will simply not be a part of the zip file. However, there is still a way out of this puzzle. If you have lots of friends and a big deal of activity on Facebook, it will not be easy to know how many of your pictures your friends have uploaded.
In this case, “Fotobounce” can help you solve your problem. It is one of the brilliant apps out there that will download all the images in which you were tagged by your friends. It is so easy it will track all the images in one single click only. Another good thing about “Fotobounce” is that it runs equally well on Mac as well as on Windows.
