Did anyone notice that you can now edit a comment you make on Facebook? When you mouse over a comment that you’ve made, the pencil icon appears on the top right corner of the comment space. Click on that and you will have the option to either edit or delete your comment. Click on Edit and your entire comment will open in edit mode. Move to the end of the comment and hit Enter when you’re done.

Caveat: An Edit History link will be visible beside the “Like” link so your initial thoughts will still be available for viewing.

The screenshots here are from the Mozilla Firefox browser. I have heard reports of strange behaviours when other browsers are used. If you stumble upon this post and have seen any of those, do chime in so we can let others know. Facebook developers will need to tighten up their cross-browser compatibility checks 🙂
