The feature is seen in the pencil icon for “Edit or Remove” in the page. The menu shows added “change date” option along with “delete post”, “report as Spam” and “Hide from Timeline” options.
Sam Biddle at Gizmodo discovered the glitch and expects it be a bug or design flaw as it makes no much sense in a social network to allow user to completely revise social history. If it’s a flaw, soon it will be removed from the application. For more updates, join us on twitter, Facebook or Google+.
