An Illustrated Guide to Saving Links and Articles on Facebook for iOS

January 6, 2016

A lot of you may already know this. This is for those who don’t.

I’m on facebook a lot. One of the annoying things about facebook is the content changes so quickly. I can be reading something, exit facebook, come back, and the article I was reading is gone.

Then, one day I discovered a way to save articles. This is a really useful feature that I don’t think a lot of people know about. I have an iPhone, iPad, and Windows computer. I know the feature is available on all on three of those, so I would think it would be available on Android products too.

Here’s how to save links, articles, posts, and videos in Facebook iOS app:

1. Tap or click on the down arrow.

2. Save the article, link, video, etc.

3. To access your saved items later, click on the menu icon in the lower right corner of the screen.

  1. I have been sharing (to only me) but this is a much better solution. Thank you for sharing.

  2. My wife showed me this on her iphone and I thought it was cool. Days later, I’ve tried to do it myself and I cannot. Nothing on my timeline has a save option available. I’ve checked FaceBook on my computer and I don’t have the option there either. It’s very strange that she has that option, yet I do not. Is there a setting somewhere or something that I need to do in order to do this?
