How to Turn Off Comments on Your Facebook Profile/Wall

Unfortunately, Facebook does not allow you to turn off comments on your page. To regain control of your privacy and content, you’ll have to think outside the box.

But don’t worry, it’s a lot simpler than you think!

We’ll go over your options in this article, whether you want to hide all comments, keep some contacts from commenting, or erase personal remarks.

How To Disable Comments on Facebook

Let us take a look at your alternatives for dealing with comments from a particular account. Follow the steps below if someone is bothering you, but you want to maintain them as a friend.

Editing Facebook Privacy Settings

To begin, log in to your Facebook account on a desktop or mobile device.

Select “Settings” from the drop-down arrow on the top right of your screen once you’ve logged in.

You’ll then wish to adjust your privacy settings. For example, you can control who sees your posts and evaluate tags before appearing on your Facebook profile or home page.

Edit Your Activity Settings

Now that you know how to restrict who has access to your personal information on Facebook, it’s time to turn off comments on your posts.

Only you can see your post if you select the “Only Me” option, which also implies that only you can comment. After a post has been published, you may always change the privacy settings.

  1. Find the post you want to change the privacy settings for.
  2. In the upper right-hand corner of that post, tap the three vertical dots.
  3. Select “Edit audience” from the drop-down menu.
  4. Choose from the options of ‘Public,’ ‘Friends,’ or ‘Friends except…’

You can conceal your post from some Facebook users using the ‘Friends except…’ option. But, unfortunately, this also means you won’t be able to see their responses.

You can choose the ‘Turn off notifications for this post’ option from the drop-down menu, where you update the post by following the steps above. Of course, people can still leave comments, but you won’t be notified, making it easy to ignore them.

This is an excellent option for one of those hotly debated blogs when everyone comments, but you’re too preoccupied to respond.

Curating Your Facebook Feed

You can control your comments in specific ways. To start, in your settings, you can hide posts that contain certain words. If you’d like to turn off comments entirely, consider enabling this option with common terms such as “I,” “And,” etc.

To do this, go into your account settings, then click on the “Profile and Tagging” option on the left-hand side.

Then, to the right of “Hide Comments containing specified words from your profile,” select the “Edit” option.

Profile Review

You can also change the settings for your “review post.” This option, which can also be found on the account settings page, triggers a pending period before any of your posts go public.

As a result, you can take your time to review everything that others try to post on your page, allowing you to manage your profile.

Finally, you have the option of hiding comments that contain particular words. This option is available on the account administration page as well. Hover over it, pick “Edit,” and type in which terms you don’t want to see on your page. Any comments posted with these phrases will automatically be hidden from your timeline, which is a wonderful feature.

While none of these are approved workarounds, they provide you with more control over your Personal and Business pages than you previously had. Also, if you want to go all out, you can put many often used terms in the “hide comments” box and almost eliminate all comments from appearing on your page.

Deleting Comments

Delete comments on your Facebook postings is currently the most effective approach for managing them. The option to remove comments is available, whether you wish to remove objectionable content or don’t want input.

Deleting Comments in the App

Follow these methods to delete and remove comments from the Facebook application:

  1. Locate and long-press the problematic comment.
  2. Tap “Delete” from the option that displays.
  3. Would you please confirm that you want to delete this comment?

This menu also includes the option to ‘hide’ comments, allowing you to avoid deleting them entirely.

Deleting Comments from the Website

It’s easy to delete comments from a web browser:

  1. Locate the comments you want to remove.
  2. Three horizontal dots, directly to the right, should be tapped.
  3. A menu will appear with the options to “Delete…” or “Hide Comments.” Select one.
  4. Would you please confirm that you want to remove the remark?

Although this isn’t the ideal option, such as a simple checkbox that disables comments forever, it does allow you some control over inappropriate stuff.

How to Turn Off Comments on Facebook Groups

Facebook has made it possible to disable comments on pages and groups, but you must be the group admin or the original poster to do it.

Click Groups on the left-hand side of the Facebook page, then tap the group you manage. Next, scroll down until you find the post on which you want to deactivate comments.

Select “Turn Off Commenting” from the three-dot icon in the upper right-hand corner. Unfortunately, you can’t completely disable commenting across the board.

Stick to the pages that grant you administrative approval because you’ll be able to easily amend and delete comments if you administer your own Facebook group. You’ll have greater control over your material and how people react to it this way. You can even make your group private, allowing only people you invite to comment.

Chrome Extensions

There are extensions for Google Chrome that seek to give you more control over your social network accounts. This is what the Shut Up Comment Blocker for Chrome claims to achieve. With excellent evaluations, this Chrome browser extension will allow you to disable all comments.

The sole disadvantage of using a Chrome extension is that it is limited to that browser. As a result, if you use the Facebook app on your mobile device, you may experience issues. However, this is the option for you if you’re genuinely committed to scrolling without comments!

Final Thoughts

Limiting your Facebook connections can help you have a better online experience. Send or accept friend requests from people you trust implicitly. Make it such that any posts to your timeline must be approved, providing you complete control over the page’s main content. It will take a little more effort, but you will end up with a beautifully tailored page for yourself.
