How To Use Saved Lists Effectively On Facebook


Facebook is one of the most popular social networking platform. By offering various ways to connect with our near and dear ones, it became one of the places on Internet where we spend most of our time at. With 1.4 billion active users per month, Facebook is the one of the most visited websites on Internet.

While accessing Facebook, we get tons of updates from friends, pages, groups etc in our news feed. Many items we see and pass on , We may like some items and want to save them, or you may want to check some items later for future reference. To help us do this, Facebook had recently Introduced a new featured called Saved Lists. This feature basically allows us to save A Link/photo/videos/Places/Books/Movies/TV shows /Events so that we can refer them later. This would help us to prioritize what we want to read on Facebook. This would help us to save items we want to refer later and accessed easily by going to saved section instead of scrolling down our news feed to get that update or going to that page or person to access that item.
