  1. […] Fewer Errors – We’ve all done it – we read and re-read a Facebook status update, click “post”, and a few minutes later realize there is a spelling or grammatical error. Unfortunately Facebook hasn’t added an edit feature after a post has been published, but you can edit posts that have been scheduled. Scheduling posts for the week can save a world of headache from having to delete posts that have already gotten some likes, shares or comments because of a simple error.  Please note that you can only edit posts that have photos. Remember Facebook is VISUAL. […]
