How many times have you been scrolling through your news feed and an interesting article catches your eye, but you don’t have time at the moment to read it? Until now, you either had to email yourself a link or come up with some other way to remind yourself to check out the piece later. According to Facebook’s announcement, you can save things like links, places, movies, TV and music
This week, Facebook introduced a new feature that lets you save items to read at a more convenient time in the future. All you have to do is click on the small arrow in the top right hand corner of a post, and click the save button:
To locate these items, click on the ‘Saved’ link in the left column under the ‘news feed’ heading:
This awesome feature is currently being rolled out to all users, and it even works on mobile devices! There are also no privacy implications either – no one can see what you’ve saved. In theory, Facebook could target ads based on saved content, but they have no plans to do so for now. Of course this could change in the future.
How to Add Saved Items to Collections
Facebook now gives users the option to add saved items to collections. We finally have a way to categorize and organize the multitude of saved items we have gathered over the years. After you click to save an item in your news feed, you will be given the option to add it to a collection.
On Facebook for desktop, you can access your saved items and collections by clicking the ‘Saved’ link in the left column. If you are on a mobile device, then look under ‘Favorites’ or ‘Apps’.
How to Delete Saved Items
- Hover your mouse in the top right corner and archive the item
- Click on the ‘Archive’ link at the top of your ‘Saved’ items
- Locate the item you want to delete and click the three dots located next to the ‘Share’ button
- Click the ‘Delete’ option
