Facebook now allows posts to be edited after they’ve been shared

Facebook logoStarting today, Facebook will allow its more than 1 billion users to edit a post’s text after it has been published. The feature is going to roll out today on Android and the web. It will be available through iOS soon as well. Previously, there was no way to edit a post’s text after it had been published. If users had to make a change, they had to delete the post and then publish another one. This had a downside. Any likes, comments or shares garnered by the first post would be lost. Having the ability to change text without losing interaction is definitely going to be welcomed by users.

The world’s largest social network already offers a similar feature for comments. Back in 2012, it started allowing users to edit comments after they had published them on a post. Similar to how it works on comments, Facebook will display an edit history for a post that has been edited, so that everyone can see if there are any changes to the text. This way, people won’t trick one another by changing the text to say something else while they’ve racked up interaction when the post said an entirely different thing. The feature is going to be rolled out from today, it might take some time to go live for everyone.
