How to download your social media data

How to download your social media data

Following the speculation of Indian government banning social media apps with only 2 days notice, my friends asked me how to download their data. So I quickly collated the official links to help them.

I have covered the official guides of Instagram, Twitter and Facebook to download all your data. In future I will share tools to browse this data and use it without depending on tech companies to keep our data in their servers.
