Well we've all done it. You go to comment on someone’s status or picture and woops you wrote brit-day instead of birthday.

Until now, the only thing to do to correct a spelling error was delete the comment and start again. Now you can edit your comment.

The edit option appears in the small pencil icon on the right side of your comment. Clicking on the pencil will bring up a drop-down menu with the option to edit your comment or delete it.

Facebook told Mashable.com the site will also be showing the editing history for a comment. That way if someone responds to a comment that gets edited, commenters in the future can see the history of the conversation and not get lost.

The editing ability went live on Thursday evening, and will be gradually rolling out to all users over the next few days.
