Have you ever started writing a Facebook post, but then decided to finish it later? Well, Facebook has a feature that lets you save your unfinished posts as drafts. It’s a handy tool that allows you to come back to your thoughts when you’re ready to share them with the world. Here’s how to find saved drafts on Facebook:
Using the Mobile App

- Create a New Post: Tap on the ‘What’s on your mind?’ box. This is where you start writing your post.
- Start Writing: Begin typing your post, adding photos, or whatever you want to share.
- Save as Draft: If you want to save your post as a draft, simply press the back button on your device (usually an arrow or “X” in the top-left corner). Facebook will ask if you want to save your post as a draft. Tap ‘Save Draft.’
