Facebook now allowed to edit comments

social media Updated: Jun 23, 2012 17:25 IST

Social networking giant Facebook is now going to allow its users to edit their comments on the website.

Users would be allowed to edit their comments by clicking on the edit option, which appears in the form of a small pencil icon on the right side of the comment, following which a drop-down menu will appear, with the option to edit the comment as well as the option to delete it entirely.

According to ABC News, the Facebook site will also be "showing the editing history for a comment so that subsequent commenters or likers have the full context of the conversation" which would allow commenters to see the history of the conversation.

The editing ability on the social site went live on Thursday, and will be gradually rolling out to all users over the next few days.
