Facebook Save: Never Lose A Facebook Post Again

Monday, August 4th, 2014 by | Filed Under: Social Networking

Facebook has made it pretty easy to save things from your newsfeed for later viewing. Maybe you sit down to look at Facebook and see a story that interests you, but you only have a few minutes. Simply click the little arrow by the top of the article, and Click Save and the title of the article. These are only saved for you, no one else can see them unless you later choose to share them.

This will save the article on your sidebar on the web for later viewing. On mobile, you can access this by going to the menu button and scrolling down to Saved.

I find this feature helpful when I’m browsing on my cell phone and find that a video won’t load from a story or I just don’t want to read the article on my small screen or I’m pressed for time. I simply save the story or video until I get to my desktop and can view it easier.

Once you have viewed your saved stories, you can share directly from the save screen, or you can choose to archive the story by clicking on the x in the top right corner. If you want to delete it completely, go to your archived articles, click the … next to the item, and then click delete. You can see all the categories of your saved stories and items at the top of the screen.

 The save feature links all your mobile accounts and the web version so that you can instantly see the saved items in any version you look.

    That little arrow only nets me the first 3 options shown in your illustration.

      Hello Della,

      It is not available on all posts. I did notice that when testing. It is not available on posts other have shared, it has to be on the actual post itself, and only on an article or video.

    Yes, I was fixing to write that I didn’t show a saved when I read the post from Audra…went and tried it and sure enough, the save only shows on original posts. Well, that’s better than nothing. Thank you for the information…I will be using it.
