We all know it can be hard to sort through the items in your newsfeed. If it weren’t for the Facebook algorhitm, most users would be exposed to as many as 1,500 posts a day in the newsfeed. And that’s not counting ads. As it is, users see approximately 300 unique posts in their newsfeed but this can still be a lot of content to sort through. And there are really only so many hours in the day– so what to do?
Twitter’s ‘bookmark’ is a great way to save tweets and articles for later. But nothing existed for Facebook until recently.
This summer, Facebook rolled out the “Save” feature. Hover over the dropdown icon in any post and you will see the option listed. Click to add to your “saved” file in Facebook. It’s very easy and explained in detail here. You can save links, places, movies, TV and music across devices. You can share your saved items with your friends, or keep them private. Finally, we don’t have to worry about trying to find that great article we saw on Monday but has disappeared from your newsfeed by Wednesday.
Encourage your Fans to “save” your posts for later reference. Save articles you find helpful to share with your audience. This new feature makes Facebook more user-friendly and offers the user the ability to access content at his/her discretion instead of missing out in a fast-paced newsfeed.
