On the desktop, saved content is reachable via a “Save” link in the sidebar.

Once you have viewed your saved content, you can either archive it or share it with friends.

Facebook says it will also send you push notifications about items you’ve saved from your newsfeed, but haven’t yet clicked.

They should've called it 'fave'.
Would've been way cooler.

On the web, I can't see this now, but I'd really like to save this post. ;)

That's what "Only Me" is for, which they inconveniently just buried in the App. I guess I know why now.
