Whenever I scan my Facebook news feed, I see items I’d like to read, watch or comment upon, but don’t always have time to do so at that moment. If Facebook wants to expand its domination of C2C and B2C online communications, it should offer users a bookmark/favorite option.
If in addition to “Liking” a given post, we could actually save it to read or watch later, it would only accrue to the benefit of all.
- We wouldn’t miss stories, photos or articles that interest us.
- Page admins would have an additional metric to measure (how many people favorited their item).
- Destination media (videos, blog posts, etc.) would benefit from otherwise missed traffic.
- People could see (if the underlying privacy settings allow) which items their friends felt were interesting enough to bookmark, allowing “influencers” to have even more influence.
Does anyone know if FB has something like this in the works? Would you use it if they offered it?
What else do you think FB is missing (snark aside!) that would make it more useful?
