Facebook announced a new product that will allow users to download their information stored on the social network and create a local copy of it.

The new product, called Download Your Information, is built on top of Facebook’s Graph application programming interface and includes wall posts, photos and status updates among other types of content. It creates a compressed ZIP file.

“You really will have a copy of all your information in one place,” said David Recordon, Facebook’s senior open programs manager.
