Once the option to edit it chosen the user can edit their comment or can cancel it by simply pressing the Esc button. But if the power to edit was given without any backup of the previous comment it could get disastrous. Just imagine a situation wherein a friend of yours comments as you are a good guy and in return you comment Thank you. Later on what if your friend edits his comment to you are a fool and if no one notices the edit, then you would be making a mockery of yourself.

This would lead to mass irritation amongst the users as it happened in the case chat bar upgrade last year, but Facebook has a solution for that too. Whenever a user edits his comment all the users who can see the post can see the ‘edited’ tag on a comment. Also they can read on the edit history as well.
