Welcome to this week’s social media tip. Today I want you to show you how to use Facebook Collections to curate and organize saved content for easy access and sharing.
Ever come across a piece of content on Facebook but don’t have time to read it in the moment? Did you know you can save that content to view later? Facebook lets you save content (posts, events, pages, and photos) directly from your news feed and then easily access your saved items from the left navigation menu on the home page.
Here’s how to do it.
To save content to your saved item list, simply click the three dots at the top right of any Facebook post in your news feed, and then simply select the option to save the content.
When you start building a group of saved posts, you can start to organize it into collections, categorizing it by topic.
To create a collection, simply click on Create Collection in the left sidebar. You’ll then be prompted to name your collection.
If you want to add a saved post to a collection, simply click the Add to Collection button below the item in your saved list – or create a new collection.
You can also share a saved item directly from your list by clicking the Share button.
I find the ability to save content on Facebook and categorize it according to collections a very useful feature. I like to share a #MondayMotivation quote each week and many times scrolling through Facebook I’ll find the perfect quote to save. Come Monday all I have to do is access my folder containing quotes to share one quickly and easily with my followers.
Here’s to your social media success!
