Facebook adds 'Save' to iOS app, online, reports say

The social network is rolling out the feature to iOS, as well as the browser-based option.

Apple

Facebook has a new saving feature rolling out across mobile devices and its site, according to new reports.

The folks over at Apple site iMore today published photos of a new Facebook app feature in iOS, called "Save." The feature, according to iMore, will allow users to save a post in their timeline for viewing later on. In order to do so, users must hold their finger over a post and click "save" when the option pops up.

The Verge is also reporting today that the "Save" option has made its way to Facebook.com. Next to the "Like," "Comment," and "Share" options, users will be able to click "Save" and keep a post for later viewing. In both versions, users will find a "Saved" grouping that they can go back to in order to check out some of the posts they've kept for future viewing.

All of the saved posts are private, according to iMore.

It appears that the feature is being rolled out somewhat slowly to user accounts. According to iMore, when the update is made available in iOS, users won't need to update the app; it simply appears within the program.

CNET has contacted Facebook for information on when the rollout will be complete. We will update this story when we have more information.
