Have you ever posted something on social media, or perhaps it was a comment on a post and just about one and a half seconds after you clicked the submit button…
Oops! Why didn’t I see that typo!!
Well you don’t have to live with teh typo,
go fixx it. :)
That ability is hiding right under your nose if you haven’t seen it already.
A little while back Facebook added the edit capability. It is hiding somewhat though. If you need to edit a post, notice the upper right of the posting box is a little down arrow that you can click for miscellaneous actions. One of which is “Edit Post”
If you need to make an edit to a comment, what you have to do is hover over the comment text that you want to edit. Notice that a pencil icon will appear in the upper right area of the comment area. Then you can choose to edit the comment.
Now that you see how to do an edit in Facebook, you are going to have no problem doing it in Google+ because it is nearly the same. On a post, there is a drop down menu and on a comment, you have to hover over the comment text to see the edit option pop up.
If you need to make a small correction on an ActiveRain comment to a blog post, hover over your comment and notice that you have three options appear in the lower right corner: Edit, Delete, and Report. Click on edit if you need to make a text correction. Note however, that the Edit option is only available for 24 hours. After that, it will stop showing.
Don’t Ignore the Red Squiggles!
It is harder and harder to make spelling mistakes these days because our computers highlight the words when we do. Now don’t ignore those red squiggly underlines! You made a mistake. (The squiggles happen automatically in FB, G+, WP, etc ) In ActiveRain, notice the spell check button on the toolbar. It is just one extra click but it can save you from missing something. When you see a red squiggle word, right click on it to see a pop up list of word options as to what it thinks you meant (left click the word in ActiveRain editor)
And that’s all I have to say about spelling mistakes. Now fixing you’re grammar, well their is another post someday for that topic. :) Your welcome.
