Facebook Now Lets Users Edit Posts On Web And Android
Posted: September 28, 2013 by Alex Chan
If typos have ever ruined your carefully crafted Facebook post, your prayers have been answered. Facebook will let its users edit their status updates as of this week, on all devices.
The "edit option" can be already used by users on the web and Android devices today while an iOS version is said to be pushed out in near future.
To make edits, you will have to click on the drop-down arrow in the top-right corner of a post. However, your revisions and original post will still be viewable if friends check your post's edit history.
This update comes one year after Facebook introduced comment editing (also with an edit history tool) in mid-2012. Fearing that the option may be abused (change "who likes hugs?" into "who wants to beat up animals?") , the social networking site waited until now to let its users correct something misspelled or poorly phrased.
Apart from the "edit option", the Android update is also said to include a few other features even though they may not be notable yet. With the latest additions, Android users can both create, and share, photo albums from their phones, see upcoming events on pages, as well as share emoticons like they can on the web.
