Facebook began testing the ability for users to edit their posts last June, and the feature was beta-tested for its Android application last September, with its rollout to desktop users starting later that month, and Android and iOS users officially joining the party last October. But other than in some isolated tests, page administrators have not been able to edit posts on their pages, until now.
Facebook.com email addresses never quite caught on, and they became the source of controversy when the social network substituted users’ Facebook.com email addresses for their authentic email addresses in June 2012. Now, Facebook is pulling the plug on the ill-fated feature.
Facebook is eyeing ways to make its groups easier to discover, encouraging group administrators to add descriptive tags to their groups.
