The Save to Facebook Chrome extension lets users save content from the web to a private page inside the social network.

The extensions are direct strikes at Pinterest, which is trying to get more people to share and save content through its tile-based interface.

According to Facebook, more than 300 million people use its saving feature every month.

In addition to the new extensions, Facebook is changing its Like buttons on the web to do away with the Facebook logo and use the company s iconic thumbs-up icon.

The Like, Send, Follow, Recommend, Save and Share buttons have been updated with a new design that s supposed to be cleaner and flatter.

According to Facebook, the new buttons are supposed to be backwards-compatible with all of the existing configurations that are currently in use.
