Facebook finally allows you to edit your embarrassing tyops, er, typos

If you've ever written "poo" instead of "pool" or "duck" instead of, er, "suck" in your Facebook status updates, then we've got good news for you. At long last, you can finally edit your post after it's been published, a feature that was previously only reserved for the comments. As you can see in the screenshot above, simply click on the downward arrow on the top right to reveal the Edit Post option. So far we're able to edit our Facebook posts on the web, and we hear that an update with the editing feature should arrive for the Android app today and the iOS one some time soon. The Android version also adds emoticons to status updates, a view of upcoming events on Pages and the ability to create and share photo albums on the phone. Don't think you can get away scot-free with the Edit option though, as an "Edited" link underneath will open a pop-up window of the edit history, so you still might want to be careful with what you post.
