Facebook for iOS will soon let you edit posts and erase those embarrassing mistakes
Post editing is something us regular Google+ users take for granted, but finally Facebook is getting on board with it too. Rolling out initially on the web and in the Android application, Facebook users can now begin to edit their posts once they've shared them, offering the chance to erase those – potentially embarrassing – mistakes. Support for iOS is on the way soon according to TechCrunch:
Soon you’ll be able to edit all posts and comments from the web, Android, or iOS. To edit posts, you’ll be able to click the down arrow in the top right of one of your posts and select ‘Edit Post’ to change the text, then click “Done Editing”
No-one really knows why it's taken Facebook so long to get around to this, but then, it's not as if the to-do list down in Palo Alto will ever be particularly small. Perhaps the strangest part to Facebook's post editing is that the original post and any other revisions will still be visible should your friends check your posts edit history. Which some could suggest negates the feature in the first place.
We'll take a better look when iOS support comes our way, but if this scratches a particular Facebook itch you had, let us know in the comments.
