Facebook is testing a new capability for its Collections feature that allows you to share content with a wider group of audience. The tool works like Pinterest in that it lets you save and organize photos and videos from Facebook.
Before, you could share Collections only with a manually selected list of Facebook friends after an update that was rolled out in December 2018. Prior to these broader sharing options, it was visible only to yourself. Now, the social networking giant has confirmed that it has been rolling out the ability to share a collection with more groups of users including the public and contributors in addition to your selected friends (via TechCrunch). The experimental feature has been available in the U.S. on the latest version of the Facebook app over the last few months.
The latest change removes the need to search for specific friends with whom you wish to share content. That said, the "Only me" option is still the default privacy setting for your curated content. You can also choose "Contributors only" if you want to pick a certain group of people who can view your Collections. Additionally, contributors can comment on and add items to your Collections as collaborators. There's no word yet on when this capability will arrive for everyone who uses that feature.
