Hidden Features on Facebook you should get acquainted with

Every day it seems a new feature is launched by Zuckerberg and his team — features that make our experience on the platform unique. Facebook has proven itself to be the digital leader of today – as Facebook.com is one of the most advance public-facing website out there.

There are many things we can do on Facebook.com that we probably aren’t at the moment.

  • You can transfer files using Facebook: This allows you to upload a file directly from your computer to transfer over. The receiver can just click on the included link and download them from there.


  • There are lots of emoji on Facebook


  • See who is snooping in your account: Want to know if someone is logged into your Facebook account without your permission? Under the Security folder, you’ll see the link “Where You’re Logged In.” Here you will find all your active Facebook log-ins from desktop or mobile.


  • Create a customizable supersized post: Just head on over to facebook.com/notes where you’ll find notes from people you follow. If you want to add your own, just click the “+ Write a Note” link in the top-right corner. Spill your thoughts out using the easy post editor, add a cover image if you want and share just like you would a regular Facebook post. If you can’t finish your note in one sitting you can just save it and publish later.

  • Details your Facebook Romance:

  • Save post or link for later:  Did you ever want to read a link that a friend shared on Facebook, but didn’t have the time at that particular moment? Then, when you finally do have a moment, you either forgot about it, or it has been buried under so much other junk that it’s not even worth searching for? We’ve all been there. That’s why you should get acquainted with Facebook’s “Save for Later” function.

  • Download a copy of all your facebooking: Just go to Settings > General and click on the link “Download a copy of your Facebook data” at the bottom and follow the directions from there.

  • Mute Facebook Live notifications: “Turn off notifications about live videos from… “. Or, click through to the actual video and you will have the ability to toggle live video notifications on/off in the top-right corner of the video.

  • Create an interest list: To access interest lists, scroll down to the “Interests” link in the left column, hover over the header and click on “more.” On the next page, click the “+Add Interests” button and you will have the option to search and follow other publicly available interest lists or create your own.

  • Curate your news feed: The quickest way to access this feature is by clicking the three dots next to “News Feed” at the top of the left rail. Choose “Edit Preferences” from the pop-up screen, click “Prioritize who to see first,” and choose the people, Pages and brands you want to see more or less of in your News Feed.

  • Embed public content:Facebook allows you to embed publicly available content on your webpage. Just click the pull-down menu in the top right of the file and click “embed” to place the code wherever you’d like.

  • Edit your advertising preference: To curate your ads, go to Settings > Ads > click “edit” next to “Ads based on my preferences.” Here, you will find all the topics that Facebook has determined is a “preference” of yours, conveniently separated into categories. You can delete an interest simply by hitting delete on the right of each interest. Or, if you’re a weirdo who’s really into their Facebook ads, you can even add new preferences.

  • Send money through Facebook: While this feature is largely tied to Messenger, you can use it on regular Facebook as well. To set it up, go to Settings > Payments to enter a debit card. Once accepted, you can send (or request) funds to/from another user via Messenger.
