Not 'fat' but 'phat' :)

In the end, Facebook lets us edit our comments. We all know that the only way to edit comments was to delete and start again.

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.

Facebook told Mashable the site will also be „showing the editing history for a comment so that subsequent commenters or likers have the full context of the conversation.“ That way if someone responds to a comment that gets edited commenters in the future can see the history of the conversation and not get lost.

To show the history of misprints? What for? Should people be aware that you've called a pretty little bird (called bustard) a bastard, instead?

so that you can't manipulate your commentry entries the way you want. A very useful move.

I was not sure that understood the matter the right way...but it seems I did. I totally agree — I can't see the profit from showing all mistakes and misprints in history that can be viewed by everyone. I don't want anyone to be able to see what mistakes I did.

Peopl, why on Earth should you care about someone seeing your misprints if you have already CORRECTED them?

Why don't you think that someone could write something like 'I f**ked your Mummy right in the a*s', cause a whole wave of outrage and then edit the comment to something like 'Your Mum is a very decent and charming lady, I am fascinated with her!'
