You no longer have to look like a buffoon to your friends on Facebook.

Updating your status too quickly can lead to bad syntax and even worse spelling.

Facebook has finally introduced a long asked for feature that will allow you to edit your post without erasing the whole thing and starting over. 

The website and the Android app will now allow you to edit your posts and your comments on other people's posts.  

Facebook says the iPhone update is coming soon. 

But don’t worry about getting caught liking someone's comments, only to have them change it - and make it look like you support something you don't - you can still check a post's edit history and make sure you're not being tricked.
