How does it work?

I have no problem saving things, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to view saved items. Even though I've saved a few things, I don't have a "Saved" item in my Favorites (nor anywhere) and I can't figure out how to add it. Has anyone figured it out?

Don't even see the option to save posts yet. Just came here to say, everyone likes George Takei Laughing

I don't know how this works, nor do I care, because I don't think this change on FB is NEWSWORTHY.

Thank you for the feedback.

I thought it was newsworthy given that Facebook is the most-downloaded (and probably most-used) mobile app of all time.

By fangirls and teens.

Don't see you posting updates about the Most downloaded and played games for mobile devices.

We don't cover apps exhaustively. We do cover some of the most popular / important ones. We use our best judgement to decide which ones are newsworthy. We welcome feedback on that, but no matter how we do it, not everyone is going to agree with that judgement. That's how it goes.

We've long covered the keys apps from Google, Facebook, and Twitter, as they're viewed by most as practically part of the Internet infrastructure.

Why most people complain is becuase they really want this website to be impartial, and not think that phonescoop is in the pockets of a large corporation. When you post tiny tiny facebook updates like this, people begin to think that.

You aren't, are you ?

Would you be mad if Rich was trying to get that Facebook Money?

No I wouldn't be mad, I mean everybody has got to make money some how, advertising is a great way to do that.

I wouldn't be made, but I wouldn't trust the information that I received, because there would have been a possibility of an outside influence.

Of course we strive to be impartial and unbiased with all of our news coverage, from what we cover to how we cover it. We maintain a strict "Chinese wall" between advertising and editorial. Our relationships with advertisers are handled by an outside company; the first I know of a new campaign is when I see the ad myself, like you. We never accept advertorials and don't let advertisers have any say in what we cover nor how.

If anything, we're more likely to be biased about covering apps we use ourselves in our daily lives, versus ones we don't use. But we're aware of that potential for bias and do our best to avoid it.
