This is going to be fantastic for trolling. I can't wait to post something inflammatory, then edit it to something innocuous, and then to complain about the flames I get.

I wonder how complicated prosecutions would become when someone commits a crime and makes a self-incriminating post, then goes back and edits it.

so no when you call someone a whore on facebook and they call you out on it you can edit it 54 months after you said it and erase it and say i didn't say that i said you were a bore. lol

Seriously, Facebook didn't have this (I wouldn't know, I don't use it)? No one ever thought of including an edit feature? This is basic stuff.

looks like most of you guys didnt bother to even read the article: if someone edits a facebook post, the old version will be still visible for everyone.

Completely awkward for some people above making comments of how they're going to use the new feature, since people can actually view the 'Edit History'..L2readthewholearticle.
