If your favorite news aggregator is Facebook’s News Feed, then you know that marking a story for reading later is an option that it could do well with. After all, we often end up saving interesting stories from our various subscription services one time or another to read later on, that it feels like the most natural thing to do. If you want to do the same on your Facebook News Feed, you should check out the handy little Chrome extension called Facebook Favorite.

Once you install Facebook Favorite Chrome extension, you’ll see the button added to the right of the Chrome’s address bar.
Then, when you head over to Facebook and start browsing your stories, you’ll notice the Favorite link next to the Like, Comment, Share links. Simply click the Favorite link and it will get saved with the text link indicating the fact.
Now time to see where your saved stories are collected. Click the extension’s icon in the Address bar, and you will notice all your favorited posts listed one below the other. Click on a story to read it in a new tab. You can also right click on the page to view your Lists and Feeds.
In fact, if you take a look at the Feeds list, you’ll see three buttons. The List button displays a list of all your saved posts in a new tab. The Feeds button shows all your saved items as embedded Facebook posts. There is also a Clear cache button which should delete all your saved posts, should you choose to do so. There is also an X button beside each post should you choose to delete individual stories.
