SAN FRANCISCO: For those embarrassing mistakes people make in their Facebook posts, there is finally some relief.

The giant social network said Friday it started allowing users to edit their comments, avoiding a more cumbersome deletion.

“For instance, if I join a thread and write a long comment but make a typo, I’ll now be able to go edit it instead of having to delete it and repost,” spokeswoman Johanna Peace said.

“We’ll also be showing the editing history for a comment so that subsequent commenters or likers have the full context of the conversation. It’s rolling out now and should be live to everyone in the next couple days.”
