This is a surprising move from Facebook. I don’t yet know to the extent that it allows you to download your information, or what you can do with it, but on first glance, it seems a way to head off Diaspora off at the pass.

It could be that Facebook is counting on other social networks in the future being built on top of it, rather than being started over from scratch. If that’s the case, then it has positioned itself as a fabric of the web, rather than a footnote in history.
