When you like or comment on a public post on Facebook, your activity will show up on your friends’ newsfeed. They’ll instantly get notified of your likes and comments. Well, many users would gladly hide their comments from their Facebook friends. Let’s see if that’s possible.
Can I Hide Comments on Public Posts from My Facebook Friends?
You cannot hide the comments that you’ve written on public Facebook posts. As long as the post’s privacy is set to Public, your comments will remain visible to everybody, including your Facebook friends. If the person who published the post doesn’t hide it or delete it, your comments will remain visible.
If a post is Public, everyone can see it, including your Facebook friends and people you’re not friends with. They can also see all the likes and comments the post has generated. Don’t post anything publicly that you don’t want your friends to see.
Facebook comments don’t have individual privacy settings. You can’t hide comments on public posts or make them visible to fewer people. This option is not supported.
Your Facebook comments are visible to people you don’t know or people you might not want to share your viewpoints with.
Unfortunately, this privacy limitation can lead to unpleasant situations. For example, your friends can see what you commented on another user’s post. However, they’re not friends with the person whose post you commented on.
Sometimes, you’ll get bombarded by posts that are not of interest to you simply because your friends commented on those posts. Well, you can unfollow them to reduce the frequency of such posts.
Your Facebook friends can see all your comments on public posts. You cannot hide them. Facebook comments don’t have individual privacy settings. Only the person who published the post can hide it or delete it and thus make your comment disappear.
