Facebook for iOS users rejoice —?? and edit your posts and comments at will

The Facebook app for iPhones, iPads and iPods got a welcome update yesterday when the social networking behemoth updated its app to allow users to edit their posts and comments directly in the app.

"It's only taken forever," Michael Grothaus writes for The Unofficial Apple Weblog, "but Facebook for iOS fans can rejoice as their top request is now a reality."

Other new features, according to the release notes:

• Edit your posts and comments, and tap to see all your changes (iPhone only)
• Add a photo when you comment
• Express yourself with icons when you post to someone's timeline (English only)
• Get to privacy shortcuts by tapping the lock by your name in the main menu
• Bug fixes

Facebook is a free app available in Apple's App Store.
