Here’s how to view your entire Facebook history (be careful what you wish for)

Facebook knows what you did last summer.

And the one before that. And the one before that. Heck, ever since you signed up to the most powerful social network on the web, it's been harvesting information about you; a little nudge to ask you where you went to school, another asking about your last job, who your cousin is, what music you like, which films you love.

Most of it will probably have slipped your mind, replaced by more important information like which Game of Thrones characters are actually still alive. But were you aware that you can take a trip down your digital memory lane with the help of a Facebook tool hidden in the depths of its settings?

Here's how to view your entire Facebook log - and boy do we mean entire. All your Facebook chats, every image you ever posted, every status update, even pokes for crying out loud - it's the digital equivalent of having your whole life flash before your eyes.

Don't say we didn't warn you...
