If I want to have a backup of my Facebook what do I have to do? Please show me a way to get a backup of my Facebook data.

I do not get your question. What is the utility of backing up all your facebook? It is all there, stored in your profile, pictures, messages and apps. It's not going anywhere with your timeline. –  Parth Kohli Dec 12 '12 at 12:36

Please be careful about promoting services, it is generally frowned upon. Please take some time to read the FAQ, specifically the point about promoting products. If you follow these guidelines you should be ok. Thanks –  Barry Dec 18 '12 at 9:17
