Facebook removes editing tag

edited

Facebook has recently (and very quietly) removed the edited tag on posts that have been amended by admins. When the edited tag was visible, it drew attention to changes so that  users could choose to view a complete history of posts edited by admins.

View a posts edit history

edited-postsEven though the edited tag has been removed from posts it is still possible to view a history of edited posts.

To do this, click the arrow in the top right hand corner of a post. If the post has been edited ‘view edit history’ will appear in the list that appears. Once clicked a list of each previous post with typos, previous details and amendments are available for all see.

edited-commentsDespite the removal of the tag on posts, the edited tag still appears underneath comments , which just begs the question, “why the change Facebook?” No reason has been offered so far…
