Visualizing Everything Facebook Knows about You

A couple of months ago, 24-year-old Austrian law student Max Schrems  requested Facebook for all his personal data. The European arm of  Facebook, based in Dublin, Ireland, was obliged to turn over this  information, as they had to follow an European law that requires any  entity to provide full access to data about an individual, should this  individual personally request for it. Accordingly, Max received a CD  containing about 1,222 pages (PDF files), including chats he had deleted  more than a year ago, “pokes” dating back to 2008, invitations, and  hundreds of other details.
