All Page admins and post authors can hide comments on Facebook. So, every time you comment on someone else’s post, there is a chance that your comment will be hidden. The only place (on Facebook) that is completely under your control is a Page that you admin and your private timeline.
1 Answer. Facebook has comment spam filters that will, by default, hide certain comments (unless the post owner goes in and manually unhides them). The comments remain in the comment count but don’t show up to the public (if it’s your post you can see three dots and click to manage the spam posts).
Steps to unhide a comment on a Facebook business Page
- All the hidden comments will still be visible to you under the posts.
- Find the hidden comment.
- Click on the three dots (…) button next to the comment.
- Click Unhide.
Hiding comments on Facebook will simply make the comment disappear from your point of view—the person who posted it as well as any common friends you share with them will still be able to view it. You can hide a Facebook comment from specific people, like an ex or your parents.
When you hide a comment on Facebook does it hide the replies?
Note: Comments and replies that are hidden will remain visible to the sender and their friends on Facebook natively.
What happens when you hide a comment on someone else’s post?
When you hide a comment on your post/update, it will still be visible to the person who posted it and all his/her friends. The commenter and his/her friends can continue the discussion also. Only the folks on commenter’s friend list can view or interact with that comment. No one else can.
Options for social media managers
Hiding the Facebook comment will keep it hidden from everyone except that person and their friends. They won’t know that the comment is hidden, so you can avoid potential fallout. Deleting the Facebook comment will erase it; no one will be able to see it.
What’s the difference between hiding and deleting a comment on Facebook?
As explained by Facebook, “When you hide a comment from a post on your Page, the comment will only be visible to the person who wrote it and their friends. When you delete a comment from a post on your Page, the comment will be permanently removed from the post.”
Can you unhide comments on Facebook?
Go to the post that has a comment you want to unhide. At the top of the comment section, click Most Relevant, then select Hidden by You. Go to the comment you want to unhide, then follow one of these options: Below the comment, click Unhide.
How do I make my Facebook comments private?
Unfortunately, you can’t hide your Facebook comments. Only the person who initially shared the post can change the privacy settings of that post. If they decide to hide or delete the post, the same thing will happen to your comment.
