Facebook Edit… Finally

Ever written a witty or poignant status update then later realised you misspelt one of the vital words? Fear no more. Introducing Facebook Edit which now allows you to edit your posts.

As of yesterday Facebook have allowed users to correct their posts using the drop-down “Edit Post” option in the top-right corner of a post. Although you can correct your posts, all users will be able to see past edit’s with a ‘History’ drop down to avoid any risk of users altering their posts and gaining ‘likes’ on content that is potentially incongruous.

This move follows the ability to edit comments which was launched a few months ago, as we see Facebook beginning to slowly grant users more editing capabilities over their content. Maybe the digital world doesn’t have to be so permanent after all.
