Facebook For iOS Updated With Ability To Edit Posts And Comments


Today Facebook released a small update to its iOS app that brings some notable features, namely the ability to edit posts and comments.

Here’s the full change log:

• Edit your posts and comments, and tap to see all your changes
• Add a photo when you comment
• Express yourself with icons when you post to someone’s timeline (English only)
• Get to privacy shortcuts by tapping the lock by your name in the main menu
• Bug fixes

You’ve been able to edit on the desktop for awhile now, but now the feature is available on mobile. The option to edit a post can be accessed under the small arrow at the top right of the status.

A big update to the Facebook app with Graph Search is reportedly in the works, so we’ll keep on the lookout for that.
