Facebook has come up with a new set of features for its members including a way to download your information and bring it with you and an easier way to set up private groups and chat with all the members of it at once. Read Larry Dignan's blog for more details.
To start click on your Account on the top right of your Facebook page and then Account Settings.
A new section near the bottom allows you to download your information.
Now you have the option to download your data.
You'll get an email telling you that your download is ready.
When you access your email, you'll be prompted for your password to continue.
Next, you'll need to unzip the file with your information.
When the file is opened, you have access to your profile on the left.
Click on any of the links to gain access to your information and download it.
Another new tool allows you to create a group right from your home page.
You can chat with everyone in your group.
