Save Links for Later
Facebook is no longer merely a platform for sharing personal thoughts and ideas—it's also become a convenient way to pass along videos, articles, and images. Of course, you don't always have time to read or watch content when you first come across it. If you see something in your Timeline that you would like to save for later, simply click on the dropdown icon at the upper right corner of the post and then select Save Video/Link/Post. You can access the posts later by navigating to More and selecting Saved from the list of options.
Set a Temporary Profile Picture
Along with videos, you can also set a temporary Profile Photo that expires after a set amount of time, allowing you to show support for an event or special cause. To set a temporary Profile Picture, simply navigate to your profile and tap your Profile Picture. Select Upload Video or Photo. You'll see the words Make Temporary in the lower left corner of the image you've selected. Tap it and then select the amount of time you'd like to have the picture on your profile.
Unfollow Specific Friends
Unfollowing is a great option if you want to remain friends with a person but don't want their posts to appear in your News Feed. This is particularly useful for friends who express views you adamantly disagree with or write posts you simply find irritating. To unfollow a friend, just go to their profile, tap More, and then select Unfollow. You can also tap on the Following tab and select Unfollow from there. Now your friend's posts will no longer appear in your Timeline—and you didn't even have to Unfriend them!
Adjust “On This Day” Memories
On This Day is a nifty little feature that allows you to look back on posts you shared in the past. But for whatever reason, you may not like to be reminded of specific moments. To adjust which memories you are reminded of, simply tap on the See More tab and select On This Day from the list of options. Then go to Settings (in the top right corner) and select Preferences. From here, you can select specific dates and people that you don't want to be reminded of.
Access Hidden Messages
Have you ever had someone who isn't your friend on Facebook try to send you a personal message (whether for business reasons or otherwise), only to never receive it in your inbox? That's because Facebook automatically sends messages from strangers to a designated Message Requests folder instead. To access this folder from your phone, you'll need to open Facebook's Messenger app. Navigate to People > Message Requests. Here, you'll likely see a long list of all the messages that have been sent to you over the years.
Facebook's See Friendship feature is a fun way to be able to view your interactions with a particular friend throughout your history on Facebook. This allows you to see photos you've been tagged in together, comments you've posted on one another's profile, and posts that have been shared with you. To take advantage of this feature, simply navigate to the profile of the friend whose history you want to view. Then select More and tap on See Friendship. Now you can scroll through the feed and view all the content that you've shared.
