While users have had the ability to edit posts and comments for a few months, more pages are now being allowed to edit their posts. As noticed by Or Fialkov of Fialkov Digital, Facebook is rolling out the ability for pages to go back and correct mistakes or update information in their posts.
A Facebook spokesperson confirmed to Inside Facebook that all verified pages can do this, and that it is being tested for some non-verified pages:
We started rolling out post editing capabilities for verified Pages earlier this month. All verified Pages now have this capability, and we’re in the process of testing it with a small group of non-verified Pages.

We looked at 2,121 hotels and resorts on Facebook, covering 114,634 posts.
- Scenery shots generate the most likes at 28.71 per 1,000 impressions — almost 5 times as much as link posts.
- People are more likely to comment or share on food photos (.99 comments per 1,000 impressions and 2.98 shares per 1,000 impressions).
- The destination, not the room amenities, drives interactions — less than 50% of engagement is on posts related to facilities.
One of the main ways a Facebook user can leave feedback for a restaurant (or any other business) is through the reviews. Much like on other sites such as Yelp, users can grade the place-based page on a 1-5 star scale and leave a review.
Now, Facebook is rolling out the ability for page admins to respond to these reviews as the page. Previously, a page admin could only comment or like a review as their personal profile.
This will help place-based pages and businesses on Facebook quickly respond to negative reviews, as well as reward or thank users for positive reviews, giving patrons more incentive to rate the page.
