Recently, being around people and using facebook, I’ve found that a lot of people have been quite surprised by these two features that I felt were almost common knowledge by daily users. They would see me post and ask me about these two features when they saw me use it.
So chances are these are obvious to you, or you may not know about these two features.
This post is for those people who may benefit from this and did not know about it before.
1. Stop Notifications On Old Posts
After you’ve commented on someone’s status, you usually get plenty of notifications that have nothing to do with you. They include all the comments after you. Facebook realized this was an issue and decided that you can opt out of these notifications by clicking on the ‘unfollow post’ button once you post.
For a while I’d reconsider commenting on someone’s status before this feature was enabled because I just didn’t want annoying notifications. Now it’s no longer an issue.
2. Edit Your Post
Once you post something, you have a chance to actually edit your post in case you made a mistake. They put this into an update without notifying everyone.
The key is you’ll have to do it relatively soon after you post. You can’t come back to it in a coupe of minutes, you have a specific window to follow.
Don’t worry about the time shown in the post, that’s simply a lack of adjusting that in post when I made the graphic.
So there you have it! Happy posting.
