Simple steps on How to edit a Facebook status update or post

Finally Facebook has introduced the most-anticipated edit feature, now users who want to edit their Facebook status update or post can do it. While this feature was absent, Facebook users used to delete the entire post just because of a small mistake or spell error but with this feature it doesn’t only save time but also could save the users from landing in controversies with their posts or status updates.

Here are simple steps that explain how to edit a Facebook status update or post:

1. Click the Top right arrow (marked red in the below pic) in the post/status update that you want to edit.

2. Select Edit (marked red in the below pic) that’s found after ‘Add Location’ in the small menu that popped up after clicking the arrow at top right of the post/status update.

3. The exact text of the status update/post opens in a new text box where it can be edited. (Even links can be edited) and Click Done Editing once the editing is done.

4. Now the new edited (modified) post appears with a small desc at the bottom saying ‘Edited’ which when clicked will show the Edit History.

Thus your Facebook Post/Status update has been edited successfully.

This Facebook status update/post edit feature is already available for Android and Web users and will be soon available for iOS users, and is not yet available for Facebook pages.

Facebook tests Instapaper/Pocket-like ‘Save for Later’ feature app

Facebook has recently tested a new feature called Instapaper/Pocket-like ‘Save for Later‘, It works as an application which can help you to saves the links that are posted in Facebook so that you can read it later or sometime in the future.

I was found this feature this morning from AllThingsD article and I can find iBook-bookmark-style icon in Facebook and when I touch or click it, the article (not the FB post) will be saved. Also I can find the activity is added in my Profile activity page, but when I tested it, the option for privacy was set to  ‘Only Me’ by default, I don’t know the exact reason, but I think it is just a testing-feature.

Also, this ‘Save for Later’ feature created a new option that can be found in under under ‘Apps’ named ‘Saved’ and from there I can find the saved link (complete) from its Thumbnail, Title of Link, Website name as well as meta description and the privacy type, with a simple swipe from the left, I can also find two more options, Share or Remove (Of course you already know with the function of these options). Easy and fast to use overall.

This feature reminded me about one year ago when Facebook also tried the same feature on iOS device where with a long press of a button, users can save the article for later reading however the user interface is very different with a white icon that is also shown with the article and when users clicked on it, the color of icon will look different, blue that indicates that the article (link) has been saved/bookmarket for later use. As of now, it is very good feature but it seems there is no option for ‘Offline Reading’ but maybe Facebook will include it later.

What I thik is this ‘Save for Later’ feature is very basic and in its early stage because it does not have its own logo in activity screen but has similar iBook-Bookmark-style icon that you can find in the sidebar.

Yes, I guess that this feature will make users Log in for a long time in their dashboard and they will not leave Facebook. Personally, this is an excellent feature for me and after its official launch, it can be a serious competitor for other applications like Instapaper and Pocket.

Just to remind you, other options like photos or notes as we might already know was available since long time ago, photo feature allow you to save and view photos on Facebook and if you like to print your photos, you can download it and save to your computer, then you can print it, easy especially if you have the best all in one printers 2017 where you can do many things, not only print but you can also scan your photos then upload it to facebook. Meanwhile for notes feature, you can write some note and publish it to your facebook account and share your notes to others. Easy and fast overall.
