Users on Facebook have been asking this question for a while now. Although the corporation has not clearly responded to this inquiry, it appears that Facebook is saving data that goes beyond user-profiles and likes. The social media behemoth appears to be retaining all of your personal data to enhance its ad-targeting technology. According to Facebook, it saves your information so you can “receive better ads.” What does “better” mean, though?
Facebook is a social networking website, the site has over 1 billion active users worldwide. It was launched as “Thefacebook” and later changed to its name after Facebook Inc acquired it in 2012 and is currently known as Meta.
Facebook works like any other social network; you can create an account, upload photos, and videos, share them with your friends, add comments, etc. You can also follow people or pages that interest you on the site and see what they are doing (and vice versa). You can also post status updates which are short messages that appear on your profile.

This contains all of the blog entries, images, and videos that you have published for your loved ones. Any messages sent to other people through Messenger, WhatsApp, or other applications are also included.
Anytime you want, you can download a copy of your Facebook data. You have the option of downloading the entire document or just the data types and time periods that interest you. You have the option of receiving your data in either an easy-to-view HTML format or a JSON format that might make it easier for another service to input.
