People frequently write posts quickly, but sometimes they realise they need more time to improve them or want to return to them later. Facebook offers a feature that lets users save their unfinished posts as drafts. This is helpful when someone wants to take a break, think, or improve their content before sharing it with friends or followers.

In this article, we discuss how to find drafts on Facebook on both the Facebook mobile app and desktop.

How to find drafts on the Facebook mobile app?

You can keep several drafts for your timeline on the Facebook mobile app. The unique thing about this is that you can only find your list of saved drafts through the notification you get when you save one. To view your saved drafts, you must create a post and back out. Follow the steps below for better clarity.

  • Open the Facebook app on your phone and tap the Write something here box to create a new post.
  • Write something in the post and tap on the Back button at the top left corner of the screen.
  • In the pop-up window, tap on the Save as Draft option.
  • After saving it, you will receive a notification; tap on it.
  • On the next screen, you will see all your drafts.

How to find drafts on Facebook on a desktop?

You can’t save your posts as drafts when using the Facebook website. If you close the window where you’re writing a post, it will stay there until you return to it. But if you try to do something else on Facebook, like going to a different page or using another feature, Facebook will ask if you want to finish editing or delete the post.
