Now you can edit Facebook posts

San Francisco - For those embarrassing mistakes people make in their Facebook posts, there is finally some relief.

The giant social network said on Friday it started allowing users to edit their comments, avoiding a more cumbersome deletion.

“For instance, if I join a thread and write a long comment but make a typo, I'll now be able to go edit it instead of having to delete it and repost,” spokeswoman Johanna Peace said.

“We'll also be showing the editing history for a comment so that subsequent commenters or likers have the full context of the conversation. It's rolling out now and should be live to everyone in the next couple days.” - Sapa-AFP
