Facebook For iPad Updated To Allow Edits

facebook-ipad-4

Last month, Facebook released an update that allowed iPhone users to edit posts and comments and even preview all of their changes. It was a small, but welcome update. Unfortunately, it was also exclusive to the iPhone, but now users of Facebook for iPad can avail themselves of the same trick.

In the Facebook 6.7 update, all iOS users can now edit and preview changes on their devices. Here’s the change log:

- Now in additional languages: Use icons to share how you’re feeling and what you’re doing
– Now on iPad: Edit your posts and tap to see all your changes
– Bug fixes

Just keep in mind your edits don’t happen secretly. All edited posts get an edit tag so people know you’ve changed your words.

    The app keeps crashing for me on my 5S and iPad Air, and also crashes on my wife’s 5 and iPad 2. :-/

    Anyone else have this issue?

    They updated it and everything is fine now.
