Have you ever started writing a post on Facebook Android and then accidentally closed the app or lost your internet connection? It can be frustrating to lose all of your hard work.

But did you know that Facebook actually saves drafts of your posts, allowing you to easily pick up where you left off? In this tutorial, we will show you how to find saved drafts on Facebook Android. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Open the Facebook App

If you haven’t already, open the Facebook app on your Android device. You can find the app icon in your app drawer or on your home screen.

Step 2: Tap on the Menu Icon

Once the Facebook app is open, look for the menu icon. It typically looks like three horizontal lines stacked on top of each other and can be found in the top right corner of the screen. Tap on this icon to proceed.

Step 3: Scroll Down and Tap on “Settings & Privacy”

In the menu that appears after tapping on the menu icon, scroll down until you see “Settings & Privacy.” Tap on this option to access additional settings.

Step 4: Tap on “Settings”

In the “Settings & Privacy” section, you will see several options. Look for “Settings” and tap on it to continue.

Step 5: Scroll Down and Tap on “Drafts”

Within the settings menu, scroll down until you find a section called “Drafts.” This is where Facebook saves all of your unfinished posts. Tap on this option to view your saved drafts.


If you don’t see a “Drafts” option in this section, it means that you don’t have any saved drafts at the moment.

Step 6: Select a Draft to Edit or Delete

Upon tapping on “Drafts,” you will see a list of all your saved drafts. Each draft will display a preview of the post content.

To edit a draft, simply tap on it and make any necessary changes. If you want to delete a draft, swipe it to the left and tap on the “Delete” button.


Keep in mind that deleting a draft is permanent and cannot be undone, so make sure you only delete drafts you no longer need.

Step 7: Resume or Publish Your Draft

Once you have made any desired changes to your draft, tap on the back arrow in the top left corner of the screen to return to the drafts list. From there, you can either continue editing other drafts or tap on the “Publish” button to share your post with your Facebook friends and followers.

Congratulations! You now know how to find saved drafts on Facebook Android.

This feature can be incredibly useful for those times when life gets in the way and interrupts your writing process. Happy posting!
