Facebook rolls out ‘Save for Later’ feature

Facebook has added a new feature that allows you to save posts for later. The ‘Save for Later’ feature works similar to the "Favorites" feature and is currently available for desktop users and for iOS devices. You can browse through the saved posts later and scroll through them as their own feed.

To save a post, you just have to click the ‘Save’ button located below every update, and the update will be stored in a ‘Saved’ sub-folder under your favorites. If you are using iPhone or iPad, then simply hold your finger down on the post you want to save and a popup that says "Save" will appear. Just tap the popup and your favorite update or post is saved.

To access your Saved folder, scroll to the bottom of the sidebar menu and tap on ‘Edit Favorites’. The next step is to tap the '+' sign and select Saved from your list of Apps. Now tap ‘Done’ and you should see your Saved folder in the Favorites section of your sidebar menu.

The saved stories are private and you don't have to worry about anyone being notified that you have saved their updates. To ‘unsave’ the saved stories, you have to physically mark them as ‘Unsave’ and remove from the Saved folder.


No update is needed to receive this feature. As with any other Facebook feature, you will get a notification informing you of the new feature at the top of your news feed when you use Facebook. As of now, the feature is available to a few iPhone, iPad and desktop users. The update is being gradually rolled out to users.

Facebook has gone through a lot of changes and evolved over the years from being just a place to share your feelings on your wall to becoming a media-rich, private island for every Facebook user. New features and services are continuously being added and fed to the millions of Facebook users around the globe. While some of them are received with an open heart, there are certain annoying features, too. Of course, you have the option to ignore anything that you don’t like.

There are rumours that Facebook is coming out with a phone. CEO Mark Zuckerberg has already rubbished the rumour in plain words, stating that they are not building a whole phone but are instead aiming at supporting an ecosystem that can help apps build on Facebook. However, there is mixed reaction among Facebook users over the supposed Facebook phone, with a UK-based digital marketing agency going to the extent of organizing a poll, and determining that 50 percent of people were not in the favor of a dedicated Facebook phone.
