What is the benefit of Bookmarking?

If you have a large group of friend’s network, if you are a member of communities/ groups on Facebook, you follow pages or people you like, then everyday people will do some sort of posting and you will receive lots of posts on your news feed. News feed will only show you the most relevant post and not all the posts. You have to scroll manually, go through all the post featured on your timeline; hence it becomes very tedious as well as time-consuming job. In this case there is a definite possibility that you can miss on to read some important post especially if time is the constraint for you. For example if you have a meeting to attend or going to office then you may not be able to read all the posts. It may also become difficult for you to remember which post you have missed on reading. Now, think of the scenario if you have an option to save the content which you want to read on a later stage, according to your convenience whenever you have enough time. The answer to all your worries is bookmark links on Facebook. Hence if you bookmark the content or post then you will not miss out on any of your important posts you really wanted to go through on Facebook. The Facebook has provided save feature wherein you can easily save almost everything and also easily refer at the later stage of what all you have saved. This is a great tool which will ensure that you do not have a burden to remember everything of what you have not viewed.

The most loved benefit of the Bookmark links on Facebook feature is, you can access the saved post or content any no of times you need. Some memorable moment, some recurring event on regular interval, all this can be viewed or referred again through bookmarking.
