edit facebook statusesFacebook is no doubt the most used online platform which, regardless of all its minute flaws, enjoys more than a billion of users worldwide. What can be taken as its success secret is the fact that the team is continuously progressing, taking a deeper look on the issues that the users often come across.

If you are an active Facebook User and post your statuses, stories, happenings and notes consistently, here is good news for you. With the latest feature introduced by the Facebook team, you can now edit Facebook Status Updates without deleting the entire post and reposting it all over again.

What’s New?

This means that if you made some typing mistake or used something which you should not share publicly, you were unable to correct it and the only way was to delete the post and rewrite it all over again.

Users, in general, were unhappy with the unavailability of this editing ability but seems like the team is really working hard to provide a better user interface and a sense of ownership to the Facebook users as users can now edit statuses, just the way they usually edit their comments.

Here is a quick tutorial!
