See an interesting post on your Facebook newsfeed for a change, but can’t read it right now? Facebook’s latest feature lets you save that post for later.
The social networking behemoth announced the feature on Monday. It’s called “Save” and lets you save items found on Facebook including links, places, movies or music.
Worried about your friends seeing you saved the latest goings ons from Kim Kardashian? Your saved items can only be seen by you unless you opt to share them with your friends.
“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. You can save items like links, places, movies, TV and music. Only you can see the items you save unless you choose to share them with friends,” writes Facebook Software Engineer Daniel Giambalvo in a blog post.
“Save” items can be viewed anytime by navigating to the “More” tab on mobile or clicking the left hand side of the web version. Items are organized by category. A quick swipe right on an item lets you share it with friends or push it into your archive list.
The “Save” feature will begin its rollout over the next few days across web and mobile platforms. Facebook released a small video below showing off the new feature.
