Facebook for iOS Updated With New Instapaper-like ‘Save for Later’ Feature

Facebook for iOS Updated With New Instapaper-like ‘Save for Later’ Feature

The Facebook team has begun rolling out a new feature to their popular social network, allowing users to stash posts and status updates to read at a later time. The update was first noted by iMore, and presents itself to the user through a notification while using the site.

Although the feature was first thought to be exclusive to mobile devices, the feature has popped up on Facebook’s website as well, and seems to be integrated deeply into Facebook’s social platform.

Once a story has been saved, it appears in a favorites folder accessible on Facebook.com, and across all the user’s devices. The service seems quite similar to other “read it later” services such as Instapaper or Pocket, but is focused specifically on status updates (although it can also save links).

The feature is currently only available to certain users, and is expected to roll out for all Facebook users in the near future. Interestingly, the feature appears to be rolling out automatically, without any need for an app update.
