How often have you found something on Facebook that you will want to go back to, then been totally unable to find it when you need it? An article, a post, something to buy maybe? Here’s how to save those useful bits and pieces for easy access when you need them.

Facebook was an absolute lifesaver when I lost some photos due to a faulty hard drive, as I was able to retrieve photographs saved there that were not backed up anywhere else.
But sometimes, you might want to save photos that you do not wish to share with your Facebook friends. Here’s how to save photos to Facebook and store them privately.
Go to your Facebook profile, choose photos, then albums, then “Create Album”.
This will allow you to store photos without them showing up in your news feed or being seen by other people.
3. Edit Your Ex Out Of Your Facebook Memories
The memories function on Facebook can be a lovely reminder of what went on in years gonbe by, or an awkard reminder of what you were doing with someone who is no longer in your life, on this day many years ago. Whether the said person is an ex, a no longer friend, or a horrible ex boss, if it’s someone you do not wish to be reminded about, there is a way to edit them out.
Click her to reach the On This Day page on Facebook. Then click on the settings cog.
Then simply select the people you wish to filter out of your memories (on Facebook at least).
Sometimes someone “adds” you on Facebook that you are not exactly friends with, but it would be sort of rude to ignore. What do you do? You have a couple of options. First, you can make them an “acquaintance”. Here’s how to do that and what that means.
Go to the profile of the person you would like to make an acquaintance. Click here is says “friends”.
Click on the audience button, (which generally defaults to “friends”).
Need to go one step further? You can choose to place a person on a “restricted” setting. This will not defriend them, but simply only show them content you set as “public”. This may include other people’s content you share. This is a good setting, as from the other person’s point of view, it merely appears that you are not very active on Facebook.
To do this, simply select “restricted” (you may have to scroll down for this” rather than “acquaintances” in the steps above,.
Did you know that you may have messages on Facebook that you have never seen? Perhaps people contacting you about items you had for sale? Anyone who is not listed as a “friend” of yours could end up with their messages in this hidden place. Here’s how to recover these messages.
In the Facebook Messenger App click “people”.
