Previously, users could edit their own comments, but there was no way to go back to fix a typo or mistake in a post without deleting it.

An update for Facebook’s Android app now allows users a re-do. By tapping the carrot in the top-right corner of the post, mobile users can edit the text. This will soon be available for the web and for Facebook’s iOS app.

Facebook told Inside Facebook that this feature, “will be available on upcoming events on Pages & photo album creations.”

Users have had the ability to edit text on photo posts, but now they can do so on link posts and status updates.

Update the Android app here. Update the iOS app here.

Readers: How happy are you that this capability is available now?
