Facebook testing `save for later ` reading feature
Washington: Facebook is reportedly testing a feature to let users save shared links on the site for later reading, similar to apps like Instapaper and Pocket.
The feature comes in the form of a small iBook-like bookmark button attached to stories shared in the News Feed and if a user clicks on the button, the link will be set aside in a `saved` menu inside a user`s Facebook apps menu.
According a website, Facebook has made it clear that it wants to play more of a part in how people use the social network to discover and read articles from third-party publishers.
The company`s CEO Mark Zuckerberg had once said that Facebook wants to give everyone in the world the best personalized newspaper.
There are also speculations that Facebook is working on its own newsreader-like feature, to make the site a destination for media content and discovery.
Any official announcement about the extent and time of rolling out the feature is yet to happen.
