Don’t delete that comment just yet!


Facebook plans to roll out the ability to edit the comments on posts very soon, reports The Next Web. In case you are not seeing it just yet, the company says that it will be available to everyone in the coming few days. Currently there is no provision to edit one’s comment – one simply has to delete the post, & re-send it again with the correction/update. The annoyance? Yet another useless notification for both the parties.

Moreover, Facebook will show the edit history for a comment, allowing everyone else to have the complete context of a conversation. The next Web also notes that the “feature is particularly important because a lot of publications have started using Facebook’s commenting system, and it’s a feature that most other commenting systems already have.”
