If you're a stickler for reading, following news stories on posts and the sort, then you probably are one of the many who have a hard time keeping up with the feeds. Now, Facebook is introducing a key feature that lets you save content to read later.

Identical to other third party services such as Pocket. The feature lets you save content without leaving the page and the stories you choose to read later can be kept in a list that the user can keep secret or make it available for public viewing. Available on mobile and desktop, the save feature can be accessed through the menu in the top right corner of any post that includes a link or page.

The list can be viewed by accessing the more tab on the app and the link on the left side of Facebook's website on the desktop. Content is organized based on categories and can be shared or deleted. Facebook also reminds you on news that's time sensitive and is considered redundant.

Expect the save feature to roll out on the app across iOS and Android and the website in the coming week.
