Facebook users may soon be able to edit their status updates , the social networking site's product manager has revealed.

Speaking at a journalism conference, Vadim Lavrusik hinted that editing status messages would be the next step in the social network's evolution.

"On Facebook, you can edit captions and you can edit comments," quoted Lavrusik reportedly, as saying, adding: "You can infer what we will do next."

Lavrusik said: "I can tell you that users have asked for [the ability to edit status] a lot," he said, "and a lot of times that's how we develop things."

A Facebook spokesperson, meanwhile, said that status post editing "is something we might consider for the future," but that the social network has "nothing to announce at this time."

Facebook seems to be moving away from this position lately; it launched comment editing this June, and now comes this hint about users possibly being able to edit full posts.
