How to Save Posts on Facebook for Later Use on Desktop and Mobile
In case you didn't know, Facebook now lets you save posts you find particularly useful for quick reference later on when you actually have time to use them. Here's how to do on both your desktop computer or mobile device.
We try and cook non-boxed meals at home as much as possible so I'm always on the lookout for new recipes to try. Pages such as Tastemade and Tasty constantly share recipes and quick videos of delicious-looking meals, but it seems I always come across them in my News Feed when I don't have plans to go to the store anytime to soon. Now I just do this...
1. Click the small, grey arrow in the upper-right corner of the post
This will bring up a drop down menu with a few options, but there's only one we care about, and that's...
2. Click 'Save Post' (or in this case 'Save Video')
Facebook will show some sort of indication the post has been successfully saved.
But where did it go?
To pull up a list of saved posts, head back to your News Feed screen. On the left-hand side with the list of pages you like, or groups you belong to, you'll see the word, "Saved". Click it.
This will take you to a screen with all your saved posts. Simply click the one you want to see again.
The save process is nearly identical when doing it from your smartphone or tablet.
1. Tap the Grey Arrow
2. Select "Save Post"
Finding them after you've saved them is a little different on the app than the desktop version. To find them, tap the "More" option along the bottom of the screen to pull up this menu.
Tap "Saved" to pull up a screen with your saved posts.
Tap the post you want to revisit, and you're set.
*I have to give credit where credit is due. I did not discover this on my own. If it wasn't for Kat Mykals, I'd still be scrolling aimlessly through various Facebook pages looking for posts I had seen days or weeks before. Thanks Kat!
