There will be no change in the rest of the profile
It has been told in the notification that the rest of the information appearing on the profile, such as current city, hometown and previous cities, will continue to appear as before and the rest of the contact and basic info will not be changed. Facebook used to give users an option to express their sexual preference with ‘Interested In’ option and they could also share their religious or political views on the profile.

Users can download their data
Before Facebook removes this information, users are being given the option to download a copy of their Facebook data. This can be done by going to Settings & Privacy. This can be done by tapping on ‘Download profile information’ and ‘view’ in the ‘Your Facebook information’ section. While doing this you will have to enter your password.
