Facebook debuts new ‘save’ feature

by Diana Dietz on

Facebook announced Monday that it is rolling out a new feature that allows users to “save” items that are posted on their news feed.

Users can save links, places, movies, TV shows, music, and more. Saved items will be kept private, unless a user decides to share them later. The Save feature will be rolling out for web, Android and iOS versions of Facebook during the next few days, according to the company’s blog post.

Items can be saved by tapping the small arrow in the upper right corner of any post, which also has tools for unfollowing content and removing content from the Facebook feed.

“Every day, people find all sorts of interesting items on Facebook that they don’t have time to explore right away. Now you can save items that you find on Facebook to check out later when you have more time,” software engineer Daniel Giambalvo wrote in a blog post.

According to Facebook, users will receive reminders of saved items within their News Feeds, which makes the content easy to access.

    Diana – is this available on Android phones yet? I can’t seem to find the small arrow in the upper right corner of posts.

    How do you find the saved feature on your laptop, once you save it?

      Dave – You can view the items you saved at any time by going to your saved items in the “More” tab on mobile or by clicking the link on the left hand side of Facebook on the web.

      Camilla – Do you like the feature? I’ve just started using it myself. Interesting new “bookmark” tool for later!
