How to Change a Facebook Link After Posting

By Crystal Bonser

Facebook makes it easy to share links with friends, groups and networks. Simply click on "Link" at the top of the page and type a URL into the text box; a clickable link, along with an optional description and thumbnail, is added. Although you cannot edit a link once it has been posted, you can delete a link and then repost it. This can be done either through your "My Links" page or your profile wall.
