Tech Thursday: Save For Later on Facebook

Today I have a super cool (and useful) tip for you!

Have you ever been browsing Facebook and come across an article, picture, link, etc. that you want to look at later? Maybe you're on your phone and you want to visit a link to register for something - but on your computer where you can actually type efficiently. Or perhaps you want to save a picture of a lesson that your favorite teacher blogger has shared to reference later. Or it might be that you want to read an article later, but you're headed into the doctor and need to put your phone away. Well, my friends, there's an easy way to simply save these things for later.

Now, before I share this wonderful tip, you may be thinking something along the lines of -- "But I just share everything to my wall that I want to revisit later." Okay, I can see that... (and I had a friend tell me this exact thing) but sharing is meant for just that...sharing with others. And really, do you go back through your own wall, digging through other people's posts, comments, tags, etc.? Let's be real...sometimes I want to revisit an article that I don't want everyone to know that I'm reading. ;) Now they don't know.

In an Internet Browser:
>> Today I was on good ol' Facebook and wanted to save this article from Education to the Core about Instagram. Click the down arrow on the top right corner of the post.

>> Towards the bottom of the drop down menu, select "Save Link".

>> To access your saved links later, look for the "Saved" page on the left hand side, under your friends lists and groups.

>> All of your saved links, videos, photos, etc. show up on this page. They're nicely sorted in chronological order so you can quickly find what you're looking for. Once you're finished with an article, you can over over the post and click the "x" that shows up in the top right hand corner of the post.

From Your Phone / Tablet {within a Facebook app}:
>> In a Facebook app it's the same process. Click the top right hand down arrow on the post.

>> Select "Save Link".

>> To view your saved items in the app, click the 3 lines on the top right (where you go to find your profile, friends list, etc.) and scroll down to "Saved".

>>  Boom -- there are all of your saved articles! :)

I hope this tip was helpful for you! Happy saving!

Teacher Planner Users: I Need Your Help! ... Plus a Giveaway

This year I'm attempting to be proactive and get started on my teacher planner updates early. I know what I want and use in a planner, but I know we all have different wants/needs as far as a planner goes. I've created a survey to get your input on what you'd like to see added to or changed in the planners, what you use that's already included, where you're from, how you prefer the weekly planning pages, etc. This will help me create a planner for YOU more so than for me. ;)

The survey should only take you a minute or two. Whether or not you use my teacher planner, you could still fill out the survey if you want. Here's the link to the survey:

And as a thank you for your help, I'm giving away any one item from my TpT store {your choice}. Enter through the Rafflecopter widget below.
