Facebook to allow edits to 'A Look Back' videos

The social network's personalized videos -- a feature rolled out in honor of its 10-year anniversary -- will soon be changeable, the company said.

Facebook A Look Back videos are everywhere on the social network right now. But users have found that they can't edit the videos. That will soon change.

Speaking to TechCrunch on Wednesday, Facebook said that users will soon be able to edit the videos to change moments included in the clips. The company's spokesperson said that Facebook doesn't yet "have exact timing" on the edit launch.

"This will enable people to remove a post from the movie that was pre-selected and change it to a different one," the spokesperson told Facebook.

Interestingly, Facebook's A Look Back help page says that users can edit videos. That feature, however, doesn't appear to be available to users as of this writing.
