Rejoice, Facebook users. The social network is finally giving you the ability to edit your posts.

The first platform that’s getting the update is the Android app, which Facebook just launched a new version of today. Facebook confirmed that they are also beginning to roll out the edit posts feature to users on the web.

Sit tight, iOS users – it’s coming.

Of course, any edited posts will be marked as edited, because Facebook knows what Facebook users are capable of. Without this little safeguard, your like for a status about loving Breaking Bad could quickly turn into a like for a status about loving to do meth.

The ability to edit posts will likely thrill users, as they won’t have to delete entire posts with tons of comments and likes just because they messed up “your” and “you’re.” Now, they’ll be able to fix it.

In June of 2012, Facebook rolled out comment editing – but that was only one piece of the puzzle. The ability to edit your actual posts is something that Facebook users have be clamoring for, and it’ll be sure to help the careless, drunk, terrible speller in all of us.
