Edited Facebook Posts No Longer Labeled as Edited?

Facebook appears to have quietly removed the “Edited” label on posts that were edited.

The social network began testing the ability for users to edit posts in June 2013, officially rolling out the feature on Android in October of that year and iOS the next month.

The functionality began rolling out to pages in February 2014.

Brett Williams of Mashable was one of the first to spot that edited posts are no longer labeled as such.

Users can still see whether posts were edited by accessing “view edit history” from the pull-down menu in the top-right-hand corner of posts, but there is no other way to tell if posts were edited.
