Sometimes, we would like to hide some of the post or comments. Now, the matter is not everyone knows the process to hide this posting on Facebook. Let me solve this problem for you. Just follow my lead to the last to explore the process to hide this posting on Facebook.
Process: How to hide this posting on Facebook timeline or delete it
It is possible to hide or remove any post in your timeline that is posted by you or your friends. Follow the instructions:
- Go to your own timeline
- Sail across to the post that you want to hide or delete.
- Tap (…) in the top right corner
- Choose hide from timeline or Delete
Hide from time: By selecting this option, it will allow you to hide this posting but it won’t be disappeared from Facebook. Later on, you will be able to unhide this post again
Delete: By selecting this option, it will thoroughly delete the post or story forever. In that case, the post needed to be created by you. If any other person creates the post, you can only hide it from your timeline and you won’t be able to delete it.
If someone tags you in a post, it shows up in your timeline. Instead of hiding this post you have to remove the tag. The post will disappear from your timeline at the moment you remove the tag. But, the post will still be visible in other places wherever it is shared and the person who created that.

If you are tagged in someone’s picture, you can remove the tag. However, that won’t delete the picture, and it will be visible in other places.
Three things to consider before hiding a comment on your business page
We all face it sometimes that someone showed up out of nowhere and give a negative or an offensive comment to our business page or product. By doing this, they try to ruin the image of our brand or company. You have to consider some points before you begin to hide or delete a comment:
Spam: This is one of the most irritating subjects for the users. Spam links might send the users to broken sites or links containing viruses or malware. For the safety of the users, you have to hide or delete them. If someone continuously gives spamming link at the comment then ban him/her.
Self-promotion: there will be some people who will try to promote their business or website to you. They try to generate traffic from your page to theirs by giving links to their own content. In this case, you can hide the comments.
Inappropriate language or content: if any of the users post a comment containing sexual content, explicit language, racism, homophobic, etc. you can delete the comment or ban the user.

How to delete all Facebook activity
Many people used to use Facebook timeline cleaner to delete all their Facebook activity. After researching it, I found many people failed to do that, and it’s kind of a script which crashes many times. I recommend instead of using additional tool or extension it’s better to delete all by yourself and on by one. It will take a bit time, but it won’t harm you. It becomes easier to delete any previous activity because there is a search button to search old activities.
