Facebook introduces another featured to the clutter

22 July 2014

Bitterwallet - Facebook The hilariously convoluted social network, Facebook, is adding yet more features to the already bewildering array of things you can do. You won't do them of course, but the options is now there, which means someone at FB HQ can feel like they've done some work.

Facebook have said that they've been listening (oh, we know that - what type of listening though? The one where you listen to an answer, or the one where you listen-in?) and some users have complained that there's just not enough time to see all the stuff that gets thrown at your feed.

Of course, the real issue is your wall is filled with stuff that Facebook deem important, not you. That's why loads of pages you've liked by magazines, business and whatnot, don't appear on your timeline any more. It isn't a case of not having time, but rather, being restricted access.

Either way, ignoring all that, Facebook have basically come up with an option to save articles so you can read them later. Daniel Giambalvo of Facebook said: "Every day, people find all sorts of interesting items on Facebook that they don’t have time to explore right away."

"Now you can save items that you find on Facebook to check out later when you have more time. You can save items like links, places, movies, TV and music. Only you can see the items you save unless you choose to share them with friends."

So basically, there's going to be a drop-down menu with an additional option in it. It will get stored and you'll be given reminders from Facebook telling you that you've got unfinished admin. This is in addition to Facebook adding a 'buy' button to the network.

This new feature will be rolled out over the next couple of days.

    And i thought i was a belligerent old bugger, this is actually a good thing. The amount of times i have seen something, to not have the time to read it immediately and then tried to find said post later on without success. Whinging about things that are actually good, don't like facebook (i don't particularly but I'm careful what i put on there), don't use it.

What do you think?
