I got an ARC of a short story anthology coming out in April, and I've found a couple typos just in the first story already. I'm friends with the editor of the anthology on Facebook (though I don't know them know them), and I want to point out the mistakes without seeming pompous or rude. Is it as simple as sending them a message letting them know where the typos are?

I'm apprehensive because it's someone I like a lot and look up to, and I don't want to misstep and give them a reason to think negatively of me when/if they come across a submission of mine in the future.

You should point those out because they've obviously missed them.

You can and should inform them of the problem tactfully. You don't need to blast them, just say, "Hey, I found some errors, or what appear to be errors, just thought you should know." Should be no worries.
