Facebook Starting Pencil Edit Feature-Forgot to H/T Charles
(Mashable) — We’ve all done it. Your friend uploads a picture of their new puppy to Facebook, and you somehow manage to leave a comment congratulating them instead on their “new pappy.”
So what do you do? Until now, the only thing Facebook would let you do to correct the error was delete the comment and start again.
But starting Thursday the site is also now offering the ability to edit your comment — and change that pappy back to the puppy you intended in the first place. The edit option appears in the form of a small pencil icon on the right side of your comment. Clicking on the pencil will bring up a drop-down menu with the option to edit your comment as well as the option to delete it entirely.
