How many times have you seen something interesting on Facebook only to forget what it was or who posted it later on? Now you can spare yourself this anguish with the help of a new Facebook save feature, which will help users keep interesting, important and memorable posts in their back pocket for future use.
According to their announcement, Links, places, movies, TV shows and music can all be saved into a special Facebook “saved items” section that only you can access— unless you choose to share it with your friends. These saved items can be accessed under the “more” tab on mobile or from the left side menu on the Facebook website, where they are placed into categories for easy access.
Facebook will also occasionally remind you about things you’ve saved with newsfeed notifications, so you may still want to use traditional bookmarks for things you want to save forever. That said, this new Facebook save feature is a great timesaver for people who only have time to browse, but not really explore Facebook links and media, during the workday. Like the rest of the internet, our Facebook feeds can become overwhelming and this new feature is a great way for the company to both acknowledge and help fix that fact.
This feature will be rolling out to users over the next few days. Check out the video below to see what saving something on your mobile able entails.
