Facebook's new button lets you save anything to peep later

The Facebook app will soon be updated to include a spot for this saved content in the navigation bar.</p><p>This is a bold move because it puts a tremendous amount of pressure on already-existing apps, like Pocket, that have been doing this sort of thing for a years. Not just that, it's an interesting effort to keep Facebook users inside of the app longer than usual. </p><p>We're on the ground at F8 2016 in San Francisco, CA to bring you the biggest news from Mark Zuckerberg and Co.</p><p><em>Now, for something completely different.</em></p><mediainsert caption="null" mediatype="YouTube" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJ31YHKb_uM" width="420">YouTube : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJ31YHKb...insert><br clear='all'/><br/><br/><a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247397687092/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4ee51f51/sc/23/rc/1/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247397687092/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4ee51f51/sc/23/rc/1/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247397687092/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4ee51f51/sc/23/rc/2/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247397687092/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4ee51f51/sc/23/rc/2/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247397687092/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4ee51f51/sc/23/rc/3/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247397687092/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4ee51f51/sc/23/rc/3/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/247397687092/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4ee51f51/sc/23/a2.htm"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/247397687092/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4ee51f51/sc/23/a2.img" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/247397687092/u/49/f/9809/c/669/s/4ee51f51/sc/23/a2t.img" border="0"/><img width='1' height='1' src='http://rss.feedsportal.com/c/669/f/9809/s/4ee51f51/sc/23/mf.gif' border='0'/><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/techradar/allnews/~4/yRd5351TWBw" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

How much longer can it possible be? It seems everyone is on Fb all the time.

You'd actually be surprised what the average time on the site is, and if Facebook can make the average even longer, then their ad-network suddenly becomes worth a LOT more. (Which by the way, it what generates them the most revenue).
