Save now and read later-new feature announced on Facebook

Facebook has announced new feature for is users, you can now save posts on Facebook to read them later. The posts can be a page's posts, links, movies, places etc.
You must have felt somewhere while browsing Facebook, about the need of such a feature. Sometimes you wish to show someone a post you liked a lot and shared it too but somewhere it gets lost in news feed. Also, there are things that you don't want to share but certainly want to read later; Facebook has made your wish come true.

HOW CAN YOU SAVE THE ITEMS ON FACEBOOK?
Below are some snapshots that I've shared to make it easier to understand on how to save items on Facebook?
The option to save the post is highlighted.

WHERE CAN I SEE MY SAVED ITEMS ON FACEBOOK?
On left corner where your name and other notifications are shown (messages, groups, games, news feed etc.), just there you can see the saved items. 
The box highlighted in red shows the saved post.

HOW THE SAVED ITEMS ARRANGED?
The saved items are arranged automatically under most suitable category.
You can see the various categories where the saved items will get placed.

CAN I SAVE A FACEBOOK PAGE?
Yes, Facebook has provided option to save a complete Facebook page for later reference(or reading).
The feature is available near the message section of a Facebook page. Check out in the screenshot below:


Other than this, there is one more thing about this feature, these saved items are private, that is they are visible to you only and if you want to share it, you can do that too. See the snapshot below:


The "lock" icon shows that it it private and I can share it if I wish too.
