The Internet is a vast and wonderful place, and with Facebook fast becoming a source of information much like Twitter, one often stumbles upon articles, music, videos and all sorts of multimedia that one simply does not have the time to explore right away.

Going back and finding these posts usually proves to be a pain, and that’s why there are several “read later” apps like Instapaper, Pocket and Readability that allow users to bookmark a link for later read-age (if that’s a word). Unfortunately, users may have found that these apps – as compatible as they are with Twitter, Facebook’s Paper and other apps – simply didn’t work with the native Facebook app itself.

The social media giant has now introduced a new bookmark feature called “Save” that compiles all the links you don’t have time to look at immediately into a centralized list that you can access later at your own leisure.

To “Save” a post, simply choose the option from the drop-down menu on the upper right corner of a post. For a Facebook Page for a place, band or movie, there is now a “Save” tab under the Page’s profile photo.

You can access your saved items under the “More” tab on the app or by clicking “Saved” on the left sidebar on a browser.

Facebook will also periodically add reminders into your News Feed to check out the places and links that you have bookmarked.

According to Facebook, Save will be available to everyone on iOS, Android and the web over the next few days.

Thanks, Facebook. You’ve saved the day.
