Upgrades on Facebook

I was away from facebook for quite sometime and when I finally returned last month, I was PLEASED to find an "edit" option when I commented. I could comment, put it up, and then edit it afterwards if I discovered I missed something. But I have a beef. Why can I edit a comment but not a post? If I post something to my wall (or any wall), then realize I need to edit it, I can't. But I can do that when I comment on a post. Peculiar. And while we're on the subject of facebook and their CONSTANT "upgrades", may I ask WHY there isn't a "dislike" button yet? There must be opposition in all things, and yet we are denied this on facebook. Many people have gone misunderstood for "like"ing a post that was about technical difficulties or illness, the post-er thinking the commenter was "like"ing their situation. If we had a "dislike", this wouldn't happen! We've been asking for one since facebook began. You'd think they'd stop making these "upgrades" (most of which we don't even WANT), and give the people what they WANT! Just plain stupidity on their part as far as I'm concerned. What do you think of facebook's "upgrades"? Anything on your nerves?

I did notice this change just recently also as I had a mistake in one of my comments to a post there, I then realized that the edit button appeared and I got curious and tried it out. It is a good feature. I don't know about the posting though, maybe you could just delete it and start a new. Anyway, as for the dislike button/feature, I have heard of this request for a long time now and the reason I think Facebook has not granted this is because they like to present their site as more of a positive thing and only positive features therefore must exist. That's just my opinion though.

I don't like that fluff. Not everything is positive, and like I said "there must be opposition in all things". What's the point of the "like" without a "dislike"? It sorta lowers it's value, having one without the other.

It seems that Facebook does not see it that way though. I think they like to avoid unnecessary problems that the dislike button could cause. Again, just my opinion.

I can see that point of view, but like I mentioned in my post, there are problems just having the "like" button have caused, too. You just can't win for losing. xP

Yeah FB has come up with a very good option called edit where one can edit his or her comments which was not present earlier. I am really happy about this upgrade.
