Life gets in the way of our social media ambitions from time to time. You’ve definitely had those instances where you’re typing away on your phone but have to quit the objective due to a distraction. Perhaps you’re in a rush to get something posted before leaving for work, but your internet goes down in the middle of the process. It’s aggravating to lose your draft, especially if it happens just as you’re about to finish typing. It can be difficult to retrace your steps and begin again. The good thing is that you can store draft on Facebook so they don’t disappear. But where do you save these draft, and how do you find them?
How to Find Facebook Drafts on a PC
(#1) Facebook PageWhen using a PC, here’s how to discover draft for your Facebook page: 1. Log in to your Facebook profile. 2. In the navigation menu on the left side of your screen, select “Pages.” This should bring up a list of all the pages you have control over. 3. Select the page whose drafts you’d like to find. 4. Select “Publishing Tools” from the navigation menu on the left side of your screen once the website has loaded. Under ‘Meta Business Suite,’ you’ll find the choice. 5. Select “Drafts” from the drop-down menu. You should get a list of all your draft at this time. 6. To open a draught, simply click on it. You’ll only receive a preview if the draught is too long. 7. You can now make any changes you want to the draught or publish it right away. You can set up automatic updates as well. 8. If you still want to save the draught after revising it, go to the “News Feed” section and select the “Share Now” option. 9. “Save” should be selected. The “Share Now” button becomes “Save as draught.” 10. Select “Save as Draft” from the drop-down menu.
(#2) Personal ProfileThe Facebook desktop app is the best way to use Facebook on your computer. While working, shopping, or travelling, you’ll have everything you need to stay connected. You can choose one of three different status kinds on the Facebook home screen to swiftly submit updates about what you’re doing and thinking about: Status Update, Photo/Video, and Link Post. Your News Feed is located in the left sidebar, so scrolling through all of your changes is simple. Despite its many advantages, the Facebook desktop app falls short when it comes to managing draft. For one thing, when you’re in profile mode, you can’t save draft. If you don’t close or reload the app, you can retrieve your draught. Browsers aren’t any better. When you finish drafting a post on Chrome, for example, you lose the draught as soon as you reload the browser. Then you won’t be able to recover the message.
