Facebook: editing comments

27 July 2012 3 Comments

Did you know that you can edit comments you’ve made on Facebook after you’ve published them?  It works for both personal and business profiles.

It’s easy. Just click in the top right corner of your comment, then go down to ‘Edit’.  Change your mind again?  Just hit escape and the original comment will stand.

This is a boon to Facebookers who comment without their reading glasses on (like me). Now all typos can be fixed after the fact!

    Unfortunately it doesn’t work for when I share a link and include a comment. It will let me change the date or add a location but that’s it. I wish the text editing feature worked in those situations too. But have been fine to fix things up when I post a picture myself with a comment. And comments in other people’s status posts, as you mention. Thanks for sharing. Good for people to know they can fix their brain farts.

    @amwaters..I’ve heard that FB is working on expanding the feature to work on a wider range of posts. Soon hopefully.
