FINALLY: Facebook Allows Users To Edit Posts

Facebook is finally rolling out one of the most requested features by users of the social network, allowing users to edit their posts. Sister blog Inside Facebook reported that the feature was added to Facebook’s Android application, and the social network told Inside Facebook it will soon be added to the iOS app and the Web.

The social network began testing the feature in June, and it was added to a beta version of its Android app earlier this month.

Facebook also told Inside Facebook the ability to edit posts will be added to events on pages and photo albums.

AllFacebook reader Craig Glaser also pointed out that page administrators can edit posts on their pages by clicking on the posts’ unique URLs, and then accessing the menu in the top-right-hand corner.
