Allow Chatter users to edit only posts they own, but view all others

Is there a way to only have user profiles edit there own posts? It seems like Chatter Settings is a global setting for Post and Comment Modification.  Once it's deselected it also removes the ability to even create a Permission Set, the entire option of Edit My Own Posts is not available. What am I missing? Right now all the users can edit anyone else's chatter post, has anyone found a work around for this?

Hi Julia,

There are few permissions on the profile which can help you to achieve this. Below are the steps:
  • Go to the user's Profile or the Permission set.
  • Click System Permissions, and then click Edit.
  • Select the edit feed post permissions you want to enable.
  • Edit My Own Posts—Let users edit their own posts and comments.
  • Edit Posts on Records I Own—Let users edit posts and comments on records they own. This setting applies to all posts and comments on a record, both by the author and made by other users.
  • Can Approve Feed Post and Comment—Let users edit and delete the posts and comments of any person in the Chatter feeds that they have access to.
