Facebook has quietly started rolling out an option to save links, videos, events, places, music, books, movies, and tv shows that your friends have posted, so that you can go back and review and refer to them at your leisure, in your “Saved” section.
While some people report seeing the “Save…” option as long ago as Decemeber, others don’t have it at all yet. But if you haven’t seen it, it’s definitely worth checking for it.
To see whether you have the “Save…” option, simply go to any of your friends’ posts on Facebook that include a link, a video, music, etc., and click on the drop-down menu arrow.
If you have the Facebook “Save…” option, you will see it here.

Once you save something, you can go to your “Saved” section and revisit them.
To remove something from your Saved section is a two-step process.
First you have to archive it, by clicking the ‘X’ in the upper right-hand corner of the saved item.
Once its in your Archive section, click on the ‘…’ next to ‘Share’:
Then click on ‘Delete’ (you can also unarchive an item here).
How to Find Your Facebook ‘Saved’ Section
To get to your Saved section, you just click on “Saved” from the left-hand navigation bar on the Facebook home page.
Oddly (or perhaps not so oddly – it is, after all, Facebook), the only place you will find a link to your ‘Saved’ section is from the Facebook home page, not, for example, from anywhere on your own timeline.
However, that said, the URL for your Facebook Saved section is very easy to remember. It’s https://www.facebook.com/saved/. (Go ahead, try this link – if it works, you have the Save option!)
