New Delhi: Social networking giant, Facebook has now started allowing users to edit their comments, to avoid embarrassing remarks people make on their posts.

Now, users will be able to moderate their comments by simply clicking on the edit option, which appears on the right side of the comment box with an option to edit the comment as well as the option to delete it completely.

"For instance, if I join a thread and write a long comment but make a typo, I`ll now be able to go edit it instead of having to delete it and repost," spokeswoman Johanna Peace said.

"We`ll also be showing the editing history for a comment so that subsequent commenters or likers have the full context of the conversation. It`s rolling out now and should be live to everyone in the next couple days," she added

Notably, the editing ability on the social site went live on Thursday, and will be gradually roll out to all users within the next few days.
