It’s about damn time. If you’ve ever made a comment and realized
you grossly misspelled something, or got hit with the ubiquitous Apple
“auto-correct”, then you’d have to x the box and start all over. Annoying.
Well, now, if you need to, you can go back and full edit your comments.
used to be that if you made a mistake you could edit your comment within the
first minute, but now you can go back and edit your comment any time you like.
I do wonder what took the folks of Facebook so long to come up with this
idea. This has been suggested forever and a day ago, so I’d love to be in
the room and see why it took so long to figure out. Its simple too; to
edit, click the small pen symbol next to your comment, click “edit” and then
change the text to whatever your heart’s desire. The only downside though
is that once you go back and start re-writing and changing your mind, a small
“edited” link appears below so people can look back on anything you change.
So, if you’re going to change your mind on something, it’s probably best
to delete your comment or simply offer a rebuttal. It seems as if this
editing feature is best used for typos.
According to Mashable, a Facebook
representative says the edit ability is live for a number of users now and will
be rolling out to everyone over the next few days.
did read an article about this new development recently and they wondered the
same thing I did. If we can edit our comments on other people’s pages,
then why can’t we edit our own status updates? I can’t wrap my head
around it, unless the editing feature is being tested on the comments because
it’s likely to get more use there and it’s a test of some sort. As
Mashable reported, it’s been live for a few folks, but I still don’t think it’s
a beta test. Who knows what Facebook is up to. One thing is for
sure, they’ve definitely been making quite the stir lately and driving their
stock price back closer and closer to the initial IPO price, which is good news
for investors. With Camera and Airtime, and now comment editing, Facebook
is doing a lot to create a even more evolving unique and creative user
it up FB.
