Save messages to Facebook

Saving something to Facebook works the same way whether you are using a desktop browser on Windows, Mac or Linux, mobile smartphone browser, iPhone, iPad or Android device.

First, find a Facebook post you want to save. Tap or click the three-dot icon in the corner of the message.

Then select “Save Post” (or Save Event, Save Link, etc.).

Things will look a little different here depending on where you use Facebook.

In a desktop browser, a popup will ask you to choose a collection to save. Choose a collection or create a new one, and click “Done” when you’re done.

With a mobile browser, the message goes directly to the standard ‘Saved items’ section. After tapping ‘Save message’, you will have the option ‘Add to a collection’.
