How to Find Saved Posts on Facebook

There's a saved section inside Facebook, here's where to go

What to Know

  • Facebook on a desktop browser: Menu > Saved.
  • In the Facebook app for iOS or Android: Menu > Saved.

This article will show you how to find your saved Facebook posts. Facebook changes its interface occasionally, so the method can be different from the one you used last time.

Where to Find Saved Facebook Posts

You can directly type in the address bar to view your saved posts. Otherwise, follow these steps to go through the Facebook menu on the desktop and mobile.

Saved Facebook Posts in the Mobile App

Viewing saved Facebook posts on the mobile apps for iOS and Android takes a couple of taps.


Specific steps may differ based on an iOS or Android phone, but the basic process will be the same. The instructions and illustrations are from the Facebook app for iOS.

  1. Select Menu (the hamburger icon) on the right of the toolbar.

  2. Select Saved to open all posts, photos, and videos you have bookmarked for later.

  3. The saved posts are arranged chronologically by the most recent ones at the forefront. Select See All to view all the saved posts, or go to your curated Collections.

  4. Tap on the post to open it. Alternatively, select the three-dot icon to the right of each post and choose View original post from the menu.

Select the Gear icon on the left of the Saved page. The Reminder Settings can help you stay on top of your saved items and prevent filing too many of them away.

  • How do I find my saved Facebook post drafts?

    Facebook doesn't save multiple drafts in one place. However, if you save a post as a draft rather than posting or deleting it, Facebook will automatically pull it back up for you when you attempt to start a new post. Drafted posts will not cross over between the Facebook app and the website, however.

  • How do I post something I've previously saved on Facebook?

    Once you locate the saved post, select the Share button and then choose your share settings to post it to your own feed.

  • Can I download and store my saved Facebook posts?

    Yes, you can download saved Facebook posts. You'll need to download a copy of your Facebook data (this will automatically include saved posts). Saved posts can be found under "Saved Items and Collection" from either the "Access Your Information" or "Download Your Information" options.
