There doesn't seem to be a way to edit your status on Facebook, however, you can delete it and re write it or you can comment on it.

I am assuming you have written something on your status that you didn't mean to or maybe you have just made a spelling mistake. Well, we all make mistakes and no one is perfect, so whatever it is you want to edit, I am sure will be soon forgotten.

Please bear in mind that if you do delete the status completely then you will also delete all the comments that are linked to that status as well.To delete a status:
  • Simply hover your cursor on the right hand side of the status that you want to delete and you will see the word 'remove'
  • Click on remove and it will disappear.
  • As simple as that!
If you want to comment on your own status then you just click on the word "comment" in exact the same way you would comment on someone else's status.

There is a discussion board on Facebook where you can ask any Facebook related question, and hopefully someone will reply to you quickly. This is simple to find:
  • Log on to your Facebook account
  • Click on 'Account' at the top right hand side of the page
  • Select 'Help Center'.
This will help you with most Facebook queries you may have, there are hundreds of already asked questions on there so you may even find what you are looking for without even asking. Facebook is changing all the time and finding ways to improve their site so hopefully one day you will be able to edit your status easily.

They mean "edit" not post a status. For instance if you made a typo when you posted your status, you can't "edit" and go back and change it.  If you wrote something on your status but wanted to rephrase it or add one more sentence - you can not go back in and "edit" - how come?

There's a sort of bubble thing at the top that asks 'what are you thinking about'. Click in it, answer the question and then hit enter.
