You can do it any time you want. Log onto Facebook. Go to your home page and find the post you want to edit. Select the three-dots to open a list of options. Select Edit Post. Edit the text as needed. Select Save. How to Delete a Photo From a Facebook Post You can remove a photo from a Facebook post without deleting the post itself. Here's how to do it: Log onto Facebook. Go to your personal page and find the post with the photo you want to delete. Select the three-dot or down-arrow icon. Select Edit Post. Hover over the photo you want to delete until an X appears in the upper-right corner of the photo. Select the X to delete. You can't delete photos you've shared from a third party. Select Save. How to Edit a Comment on Someone Else’s Facebook Post As with things you post on your own timeline, you might think twice about a comment you made on someone else’s post. Here's how to edit it: Find the comment you want to edit. When you hover over it with your mouse pointer, a three-dot icon should appear to the right. Click the icon. Select Edit. Make your changes, then press Enter or tap Update. You can also choose to delete the comment entirely by selecting Delete instead of Edit. How to Add a Photo to a Facebook Post Say you went to an event and created a post about it. Later, your friend sends you some more great shots. You can add them easily using the steps below. While on your timeline, scroll to the post you want to add photos to. Select the three-dot or down-arrow icon. Select Edit Post. You see the photos you already have in the post, plus a dotted photo outline with a plus-sign inside it. Select the plus sign. If you're using the Facebook app, tap the photo icon at the bottom of the screen instead. Find the photo you want to add on your hard drive or phone and select Open or Done. The photo appears alongside the others in your post. Select Save.
