Facebook Rolling Out ‘Save for Later’ Feature
By on July 31st, 2012

Over the years, Facebook has evolved from being just a place to share what you are doing and what is happening in your life to a destination for creating and sharing great content in addition to sharing snippets of your life. Every now and then, while browsing through the news feed, you will stumble upon a great link or an insightful note that you might want to read later. There are apps like Instapaper and Pocket that are meant for just this – saving pieces of content that you want to delve into at your leisure. They work fairly well when you are using Facebook on your desktop. However, having to constantly switch between Instapaper and Facebook apps on your smartphone can become annoying.

Facebook is now attempting to ease this pain point by introducing ‘save for later’ feature. The Verge has confirmed that Facebook will be adding a ‘Save’ button beneath every update. Clicking on the button will tuck away the update in a ‘Saved’ sub-folder under your favorites. This feature is also being rolled out to Facebook’s mobile apps, where it will perhaps be most appreciated.

Saved stories are private, and can be easily unsaved with the tap of a button. As always, the update is being gradually rolled out to users. Once it is rolled out to your account, you should see a notification informing you about the new feature.
