It is getting harder and harder to keep up with all the content we read on the web, our Facebook news feeds are already having to be curated heavily just to deal with the massive influx of posts that would otherwise stream faster than we could catch up, much like Twitter does when we follow a few hundred people.
Now Facebook have one solution, adding a featured called “Save”, which is fairly self-explanatory, clicking it will move all the links, places, music, TV shows or anything else you’ve flagged into a special section on both your desktop and mobile. So if you don’t have time to read that eTeknix article because you’re at work, save it, pick it up later on the train home the end of the day.
Once accessed or read, you can the share with friends or archive the content you had saved. Facebook can also send you push notifications about items you’ve saved from the news feed, but that you haven’t click yet.
Will this be enough to help Facebook compete with other “Save” style apps such as Pocket? That remains to be seen, especially since Facebook are no stranger to trying to move into the news curating market, although so far they’ve not had a great deal of success. I mean, how many of you still (or have ever) used Facebook Paper?
