Guide: How to Hide Com­ments on Facebook

Social media sites like Facebook are a great platform to catch up with friends. But it has also become a breeding ground for hate speech, personal attacks and more. These often enter your life through comments. One way to deal with it is to hide comments on Facebook to put those unwanted things away. But what happens if you hide comments on Facebook? There are some questions that remain unanswered like can you only hide comments on your posts? What about posts you’ve been tagged in? Can mutual friends view comments you have hidden? That’s why we’ve rolled up our sleeves to provide as much clarity as possible about hiding comments on Facebook. Let’s start.

How to Hide comments on Facebook

While there are billions of users on Facebook, we assume that a fair share of people have yet to hide comments on their Facebook accounts. So when you come across your comment or someone’s comment about your update, select the three-dot menu next to the comment and choose the Hide Comment option.

The comment text should be blurred or grayed out. You will notice the Unhide option below it, which can be useful if you change your mind later.

The same steps also work on smartphone apps. Press and hold the comment to pop upup with the option Hide comment.

Note: Do you see gray comments and don’t remember hiding them? It is possible that these comments have been flagged by the system as spam or violate one of Facebook’s policies.

What happens if you hide comments on your posts / page

There are two scenarios. The first is where you posted a status update and someone commented on it. The second is when someone comments on an update on your page. When you hide a comment on your post / update, it will still be visible to the person who posted it and all of their friends.

The commenter and his / her friends can also continue the discussion. Only the people on the commenter’s friend list can view or comment on that comment. No one else can.

Hides hiding comments from commenter

The short answer is a resounding no. The commenter will never find out unless people start talking about it. People today are smart and often take screenshots of controversial comments that anticipate such a move. Be careful what you hide or delete. Read our opinion below on what kinds of comments to hide if you’re unsure.

What happens if you hide comments in tagged posts

Let’s say someone tagged you in a post that you don’t want to deal with. Then you ask your friend to delete your name or comment, but he / she doesn’t listen because you’re annoyed, which is even more fun / satisfying. You can also hide comments about updates you’ve been tagged in, and the treatment will remain the same. Your friends can’t see it, but theirs can and if you have mutual friends, they can see it too.

You can prevent people from tagging you or making every tagged post an approval process before it appears on your timeline. That’s called Review and you’ll find it under Settings> Timeline & Tagging at the bottom of the screen.

What kinds of comments should you hide

Hiding comments isn’t always a good idea. I’ve already shared a reason above where users can take screenshots. Here’s one more and a better one. Let’s say you run a business page and people make good and bad comments about your product or customer service. If someone is not satisfied with your service, try to understand and resolve the problem or root cause. That shows the customer that you care and that no one is perfect. It just makes you human. Even some of the most respected and loved brands receive negative comments in the form of constructive criticism. And that’s okay.

What’s not okay is spam, bad language, personal marketing or self-promotion, irrelevant links or images, inappropriate or adult content, or hate speech. You should always hide such comments and can even block them if they repeat the violation. It is your right to protect yourself or your company’s reputation, but not at the expense of losing customers. That’s a judgment and you have to decide whether to respond or respond. You don’t want your customers to lose confidence or think that you are not transparent about your business. Transparency and honesty with customers certainly help build lasting relationships with customers. You can also ask the customer for their email ID or phone number via DM and take the issue off the page. You cannot always offer a solution immediately. Some things take time, and you don’t want the issue to hang on Facebook for long.

Think before you act

Managing your social life online had to be fun. Instead, it has become a chore and a headache in more ways than one. Social media sites are struggling with myriad problems and lives ruined by a single update or photo / video. You should treat comments carefully, especially if you have a business page. The good thing is that you can always make a comment visible later. The next up: You will learn the difference between taking a break and not following feature from Facebook. They are both different and knowing the difference can help protect your friendship.
