Facebook Adds Save for Later Feature

Submitted by Sl on Sun, 05/08/12 - 13:54

If you ever wanted to save a facebook post for reading later, you will be glad to know Facebook added this feature to their website and iOS app.
Starting from July 31, you should have a Saved button in your Facebook Favorites and users are starting to recieve a notfication prompting them to press and hold to save the storty for later.
If you don't have the Saved button, you must first scroll to the bottom of the sidebar menu and tap on Edit Favorites. Next, tap the sign and select Saved from your list of Apps. Then tap Done. Now, you should see your Saved folder in the Favorites section of your sidebar menu.

Saving a story doesn't send a notification to the person who wrote the story you saved, so you don't have to worry about people finding out you saved their status.
To save a story, hold your finger down on the feature and a pop-up saying β€œSave” will appear. On the Facebook website, the Save button is at the bottom of the story next to Like, Comment and Share.
To view your saved stories you need to enter your Saved folder from the Favorites and then you will reach your private Saved Stories feed. To remove a story you need to find it on your Saved feed and hit the Unsave button.
