Find the post you want to edit

Log into your Facebook account and find the post you want to edit among the albums you have in your personal account. When you choose the publication you have to click on it to open it.



Go to the control menu

Click on the three dots in the upper right corner of the post. This is the control menu,  in this section you will see several options where you can choose the one you prefer.

Edit post

  1. Select the "Edit Publication" option.
  2. Add the new image that will be the final one and click "Save". In this step it is important do not delete the original image. If you do, the Facebook application will crash and the change will not be saved.
  3. Then repeat steps 2 and 3.
  4. And now, yes, delete the unwanted image by clicking on the x (X) that appears above it.
  5. Finally, select the option "Save".

And it's so easy to change or edit a photo on Facebook, while keeping the reactions and comments written. Also, in that same section you can too change the description of your publication as well as its display options, making it visible to everyone, your friends or just certain people.


Also noteworthy is the fact that when you edit a post, a box appears next to the date that says “Modified”. Whoever clicks on it will be able to see the history of all the changes that have been made.


Facebook designed it this way for prevent misuse of this function, which could include spam, misleading advertising, etc.

On the other hand, you will be happy to know that this feature it is not exclusive to the computer version. It is also possible to make changes to a publication from your Android and iOS mobile. To do this, follow these steps on your mobile:

  2. Tap the drop-down menu in the right corner. It is the “V” shaped icon.
  3. Select the option "Edit publication".
  4. Repeat the same process described in the first part, without forgetting not to initially delete the photo you want to delete.

Maximize your advertised posts on Facebook

If you're planning to advertise on Facebook for free or for a fee, you should know that image is everything. Therefore, now we want to give you some tips that can help you get the best results in your advertised publications. In fact, the following are one of the many marketing strategies available to advertise on social media for free.

Use the correct proportions for each place

This depends on where you will advertise your product. Whether it's in your feed, stories, or your news feed, you need to make sure your images have the correct aspect ratio.


Otherwise, they may not look good. To get a clear idea, we recommend that you check the aspect ratio supported by each publication.


Clearly show your product

When creating a Facebook Ads ad, the key is short descriptions. When people move through your wall, they usually do it fast. If you clearly explain what your product is about, they will easily understand the message. Of course, a good photo goes a long way in attracting attention.


Don't saturate your images with a lot of text

Before posting an ad, Facebook evaluates how attractive it can be to the user. If the image you post contains more than 20% text, most likely Facebook will not show it, as it will be considered unkind. To learn more about this aspect, you can consult the help section of the social network.


Before publishing see a preview

If you are not wrong you will not have things to correct. Therefore, use Facebook's preview tool before posting your ad. To do this, you can use Creative Hub to see them as the end user will see them on smartphones and computers.

With these tips, you'll get the most out of your Facebook ads and won't have to go around editing your posts.
