An issue that has long irked Facebook users is that you could not edit status update posts once they went live on your wall – your only option was to delete them entirely and start over. But now, Facebook is testing this feature that will finally allow users to edit their status updates without having to delete and start from scratch.
To check out this new Facebook feature, create a status update, and post it to your wall. Then, hover over your post. If you're one of the lucky users that Facebook is testing this feature with, you’ll notice that a pencil icon appears in the upper right hand corner. Click on the pencil to edit (or delete) your post!
