Facebook Adding Permanent Comment Corrector
Facebook is about to become a bit more manicured and, most likely, grammatically correct. That’s because the social network is soon to roll out full comment editing tools for all users, including brands. Facebook currently lets users edit comments within a few seconds of posting. Now, however, users of all stripes will have unlimited time to make changes to comments, which means that Facebook will open up their entire comment history for editing.
Yes, It’s “a gift to the clumsy, hurried, and drunk,” writes WebProNews. “Comment editors shouldn’t think they can abuse this system [as] there will now exist an ‘Edit History’ that allows users to look back at the journey a specific comment has made -- correction by correction.” Also of note, it’s doesn’t appear as if Facebook is letting users go back and edit their original posts, yet they can always add location, re-date, or just delete them all together.
“Always on record, sure, but forever correctible,” as WebProNews puts it. As such, we know a few brand representatives who will likely sleep a bit easier.
