How to Change a Facebook Link After Posting

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.
