On Monday, Facebook announced a new feature allowing members to save links to read later. The new feature is aptly called "Save," will be available during the coming days. Facebook described the new feature:
"... people find all sorts of interesting items on Facebook that they don’t have time to explore right away. Now you can save items that you find on Facebook to check out later when you have more time. You can save items like links, places, movies, TV and music. Only you can see the items you save unless you choose to share them with friends."
The announcement described how members can use the Save feature on mobile devices and via the website. If you read news items via Facebook, the new feature is beneficial.
Facebook's Save feature is long overdue as Twitter provided its users with the "Favorite" feature for many years. Seems like Facebook is playing catchup. It introduced searchable Hashtags in 2013, and now the Save feature.
