But a lot of younger users tend to lớn favor other social truyền thông media platforms these days. Why? Because of the garbage that overwhelms the News Feed.

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 tóm tắt with them will still be able khổng lồ view it. You can hide a Facebook phản hồi from specific people, lượt thích an ex or your parents. You can hide Facebook comments that have sầu grammatical errors. Basically, when you don’t lượt thích a comment but aren’t sure if you want it gone forever, this is the solution.

Deleting the bình luận will remove sầu it completely và forever, so be sure you really want it gone before choosing this option! You, the person who posted it, and the friends you have sầu in comtháng will no longer be able lớn see it. You can delete duplicate comments. You can delete comments that spoil TV shows, books, or movies. You can delete comments that blurt out your secrets without your consent.

Now that we’re clear on the terms, we can talk specifically about hiding a bình luận on Facebook.

The only thing that changes is you cannot delete the phản hồi yourself. You can, however, report the comment lớn Facebook, as a last resort.
