If you are not already familiar with ‘Saved’ collection on Facebook, it is a feature that lets you save posts in a collection which you can easily access later. You can create ‘Saved’ collection and add posts to the collection while browsing the feeds. This works similarly like YouTube’s ‘Watch Later’ feature however it lets you create multiple collections with custom-names.
Since the launch, the ‘Saved’ collections were private but recently Facebook added a feature that allows you to invite your friends as contributors to your collection(s). With this new feature, you can create share ‘Saved’ collections on Facebook. However, this feature is exclusive to the Facebook mobile app only; it’s not yet available on www.Facebook.com.
Above you can see the video demonstration of this shared saved collection feature of Facebook.
