Facebook has just announced a new feature for both its popular iOS app and site. Much like Pocket and Instapaper, Save allows users of the social network to file away information to access later. Some of the things users can Save include links, places, movies, TV, and music. Here’s a quick video about the feature. Click here if you can’t see it. Interestingly, Facebook users can even share the saved information with friends. Saved items can be looked at by going to the “More” tab in the iOS app. The saved items are organized by category. Swiping right can either archive the item or allow you to share it with friends. The News Feed will also periodically show you a reminder of saved items. A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini, Facebook can be downloaded now on the App Store for free. According to the social network, the feature will be available on both the iOS app and site “over the next few days.” For other news today, see: Apple releases iOS 8 beta 4, OS X Yosemite developer preview 4, First OS X Yosemite public beta is set to launch, and Apple's iOS 7 is secure against hackers, but not law enforcement.
