I would be the first to admit that I use Facebook as an RSS reader more than as a tool to connect to friends. In fact, for the past 2 months, I have virtually unfollowed every single friend on my Facebook feed which makes sure my feed is a constant fill from the content from sites or publications that I would be interested in reading. Given how important the social media audience is for all the major publishers, it is no surprise that the article is immediately shared on the Facebook page of these publishers.
But what if you are in a hurry and would like to read a particular post later on? Unfortunately, there is no integration of Pocket or Instapaper with Facebook yet. However, to help and solve this issue, Facebook has added a save feature that lets you bookmark the post for reading them later. All you need to do is when you are scrolling through the feed click on the arrow that is on the top right of the Facebook post and click on the option that says ‘Save…..followed by the article name’. The moment you do that, you will see the article will be saved in the ‘Saved’ section that would be visible on the left pane of your newsfeed.
Whenever you get the time, simply click on it and you can read the article that you have saved. This is a really good implementation by Facebook, but still means we have to go back and forth between FB and our Pocket account. We hope that Facebook would bring Pocket on board officially soon. The same feature is also available on Facebook mobile apps, both on Android and Twitter.
