New York: Facebook has added a number of updates in its features during past few years but until now, the only thing Facebook would let you do to correct the error was delete the comment and start again.
“This is particularly useful if you’ve made a typo within your comment but already received some likes,” a Facebook spokeswoman said in a comment. “Now you won’t have to delete the comment entirely, just edit it.”
So, if you used the wrong form of “their” or spelled your friend’s name wrong on a comment that sparked an otherwise interesting discussion among friends, just edit the mistake and keep the conversation going.
“Anyone who can see the comment will also be able to see the edited history,” the Facebook spokeswoman said. “If you dont want to show past versions, you can just delete it and re-comment as you would have before this feature.”
