In July of this year, Facebook added a feature to easily save an article we come across in our newsfeed for reading later on. This is great for those of us scrolling through our newsfeed with no time to click to read stories right then.
You will see the ‘save’ button (little bookmark icon), when you’re reading stories either in your newsfeed or that of your friend or if you’re on a page. Just look for the gray drop-down arrow to the right of each piece of news, click on it and select the ‘Save’ feature – that’s all you need to do!
To access your saved stories when you have time, simply go to your ‘Home’ page and look over to the left for ‘Saved’. There you’ll see how many articles are waiting for you to read. This works with videos as well as saving restaurants too. No one else will be able to see your saved list of items.
Save On Mobile
This feature works on the iOS and Android mobile platforms too (sorry, I don’t see this on the Windows 8.1 phone). It works in the same manner – just look for the gray drop-down and select Save. Facebook says that they may remind you from time to time about your saved items (in case you’ve forgotten them, I suppose).
That’s it for this week – a short post, but hopefully helpful. I’d heard a little here and there about it, but never took the time to investigate, so I thought you might like to know more in depth about this nice addition to Facebook.
