We've all seen a link to a really interesting article on Facebook and not had the time to read it. We've wanted to watch a video someone shared, but suffered from a crappy connection.
There is a cool solution: saving content on Facebook so you can take a look it when you've got the time and sufficient bandwidth. As only you can see the content you save, think of it as storage for your guilty pleasures, like cat Vines.
Have a look through our simple instructions below to start saving interesting bits and bobs on Facebook. Let us know what other Facebook tricks you'd like to learn — we could tackle it in a future post.
You can save any post with a link in it, including links out to videos, places, music, books, films, TV programs and events.
To save content down, simply click on the drop-down arrow at the top right-hand corner of a post, then click "Save [TITLE OF CONTENT]."
The options are arranged a little differently, but it works the same way on mobile.
To view your saved content, simply head to your Facebook homepage. You will see the "Saved" tab in your Favorites at the top left-hand side of the page, under the "Newsfeed" heading.
Clicking on "Saved" will take you to your content, which you can choose to view by type by clicking on the tabs at the top of the page. To see your items in full, simply click on the titles.
Alternatively, you can head to www.facebook.com/saved.
To find saved content on your phone, touch the "More" button at the bottom right of your screen. You will see "Saved" in the menu that appears. Click through to access your list, then you can scroll through or click again to "Filter by type."
To delete something you no longer need, hover over the item and click the "X" that appears. This will send the content to the "Archive" tab.
If you want to delete something permanently, you have to go into to your Archive. Once there, look for the box with three dots in it next to each item's Share option. This will give you the ability to actually delete it.
