  • Facebook is set to release a new collections feature to help users share their gifting ideas in the holiday season.
  • Custom collections can be shared with anyone on your friend list and can be used for gift ideas, recipes and more.
  • The new feature will be available by next week for all users on all platforms.

With the holiday season finally here, Facebook has become one of the best places to find and buy gifts. We not only have the biggest brands showcasing their best offers for the holiday season in their pages, but small businesses have also taken to Facebook and are directly selling their wares on the platform.

Facebook has introduced a new way to share collections on the platform with friends and family. The collection feature is by no means new. It was pushed out more than a year ago to help users not only save and organize posts by friends or Pages but also Marketplace listings. With the latest update, users will now be able to share their collections with friends and family on the platform.

Facebook users can now group their saved marketplace listings together and share them as a separate post or via messages to your contacts. It is a perfect feature if you want to share your holiday shopping list with others and it can also make it easier for others to know what you want for the holidays.

A dedicated holiday recipes menu is available under collections which can be used to share recipes that you discovered. The feature can also be used for other events like weddings, vacations and more. The update will be available by next week and users can now use Facebook for organizing events better than ever before. While desktop/web users will receive the feature automatically, mobile and tablet users may need to update the app to the latest version once the update hits to get access to the new feature next week.
