No More Typos: Facebook Enables Comment and History Editing

Facebook Enables Comment and History Editing

This revelation should receive a warmer welcome than Facebook's previous announcement about making Timeline mandatory. According to TechCrunch's report, Facebook is in the midst of enabling comment editing on their social network platform. In other words, Facebook users will be able to edit their typos and bloopers in due time, and it's being rolled out worldwide as we speak.

Before this, Facebook warriors were able to edit commentaries made but only within a brief window of a few seconds or so. This new feature comes, however, with a few caveats. For one, other users will be able to view your editing history, and two, it is not available on the mobile application as yet. Ironically, typos are often made via mobile phones or tablets rather than personal computers, credit (or should we say discredit?) to a cramped keyboard and pesky auto-correction functions. 

While Facebook's latest update looks set to save users from the inconvenience of deleting and re-posting their erroneous entries, we also reckon it would invite a fresh host of two-faced contributors who have no qualms of editing their comments just to please the masses. Thankfully, this is where Edit History comes in. We call that good thinking.
