Saving in Facebook

Perhaps you already know about this but it was new to me so I thought I would share.  I have lots of librarian colleagues on Facebook and they often share interesting articles that I don’t have time to read during the workday. Sometimes, if they look interesting enough I will open them and clip to Evernote or Pocket but I don’t often bother.  But now there is an option to Save them in Facebook.

Just click on the tiny down arrow in the top right corner of the post to open the menu pictured above.  Click on Save “name of the post” and the content is saved for future enjoyment!

To get back to the stuff you’ve saved, just look at the top left on the home screen under your profile.  You can see a list of what you saved, when you saved it, who posted it and where it is online.  You can even go back and share the link if you decide the content is worthwhile.  If you click on the “via NPR” by the article it takes you back to the post so you can see the comment and discussion.

I think this is a great feature!  Now I have another place to save articles that I’ll never have time to read!
