A community website appeared to have got the better of Facebook on Thursday after a guerilla campaign overloaded the social network with requests to send out hard copies of personal data it holds on its users.

The campaign, blatantly called How to annoy Facebook, was started by a user on the social news site Reddit and quickly became the number three story in its "what's hot" section.

Under some data protection laws in Europe, Facebook has to send a hard copy – likely to be a CD – of your personal data. In the case of the UK and Ireland, it must send out a CD within 40 days.

sadly singapore does not have such laws that would otherwise allow me to drop facebook an email:)
