Step-by-Step Guide: How to Hide Likes and Comments on Facebook

Facebook is an incredibly popular social media platform, with almost 3 billion active users worldwide. It allows people to share photos, videos, and text with their friends and family all around the world. However, it is important to remember that these platforms also come with potential risks and drawbacks. One such risk is that our posts can be seen by unwanted viewers or even end up in the wrong hands. By hiding likes and comments, you can shift your focus from chasing engagement numbers to creating content that truly resonates with your target audience. This can lead to higher-quality content that is authentic, valuable, and shareable, which can help increase visibility and reach as users are more likely to engage with and share meaningful content.

Fortunately, there are ways to protect yourself and manage your online profile. As sometimes we may want to hide our likes or comments so that others are not able to view them. This blog will provide helpful tips on how to hide likes and comments from other Facebook users. So, let’s get started;

Step 1: Log in to Your Facebook Account

To begin, log in to your Facebook account using your username and password. Once you have successfully logged in, you will be directed to the news feed. 

Step 2: Find the Post You Want to Hide Likes and Comments On

Now that you are logged in, locate the post for which you want to hide likes and comments. You can find a post by scrolling through your news feed, searching for the post in the search bar, or viewing it from your profile. 

Step 3: Click on the Three Dots (More Options)

Once you have located the post, click on the three dots (more options) to reveal additional options. From here, select “Hide Post” from the drop-down menu. 

Step 4: Select “Hide Post” from the Drop-down Menu

After selecting “Hide Post”, a new window will appear that warns you about what happens when you hide a post. Make sure to read and understand this information before continuing. 

Step 5: Confirm Your Decision

To confirm your decision, select “Hide Post” again. This will hide the post from public view and people will no longer be able to like or comment on it. 

Step 6: Likes and Comments are Hidden

Once you have hidden the post, all likes and comments will be hidden from view. People who already liked or commented on the post will still be able to see it, but new people won’t be able to like or comment on it. 

Step 7: Optional – Undo Hidden Posts

If you want to undo your post and make it visible again, you can do so by selecting “Unhide Post” from the same drop-down menu. This will make the post visible and people can like and comment on it again. 

Following these steps will allow you to hide likes and comments on your Facebook posts. Remember, you can always unhide a post if you change your mind. Be sure to use this feature responsibly, as it can be a powerful tool for managing your privacy settings.
