Facebook now has the ability to edit comments. Previously if you posted a comment and then saw that you might have said the wrong thing or would like to say it differently or maybe made a spelling mistake. you would need to delete it and start all over again. This has been taken care of and you now can edit comments. You cannot however edit a post, this is one feature that Facebook should look into making available to its users.
