How to fix errors using the edit Facebook posts feature

One of the missing features on Facebook was the ability to edit Facebook posts.

While sites like Google Plus have had the ability to edit posts when they first launched, Facebook is finally rolling out the ability to edit posts to pages and profiles.

The BBC reported concerns over the misuse of Facebook edited posts. While some people might see editing posts as a concern, I consider this good news.

This is because you can now go and fix any spelling or grammar errors in your posts!

To edit Facebook posts on your Facebook Page or Profile, follow these instructions.
