Facebook Bringing Out 'Save for Later' Feature

Facebook is slowly rolling out a "save for later" feature for its users. iMore first spotted the update for the Facebook mobile website, although The Verge has confirmed that the new feature has also touched down for desktops.

Mobile users who get the update will receive a notification alerting them that they can save their favorite stories by pressing and holding anywhere on the story. The saved story will then be stashed under the user's "favorites" section in the sidebar to revisit when offline.

For desktop users, the save feature will appear next to the share option in stories. Similar to "liking" a story, saving a story can easily be toggled on or off.

The new save feature is currently for Facebook posts only, so it might be a little early to start tolling the death knoll for Instapaper and Pocket.

Note that not all Facebook users have received this update, so don't panic if you can't start saving stories just yet.
