How to Turn off Comments on Facebook Posts

Facebook is the most used social media platform in the world. As of right now, Nearly 2.6 billion people are active on Facebook. It has made our life so much easier as we can connect with people across the world. People engage on Facebook to share photos, chat with their colleagues, and share their thoughts and opinion.

People are spending more time using Facebook than learning new things. With the new updates, it is amusing to use Facebook. Especially the younger generation is more fond of using it rather than, the older generation. However, the craze of Facebook can be seen in older people too.

It might be a challenging place sometimes as it is filled with people having different opinions or people who want to troll, harass or even bully online.


We can see people arguing in the comment section on senseless topics. These people may troll or criticize you for your opinion. It is reasonable not to agree with other opinions, but sometimes things get out of hand.

Facebook is doing its best to tackle this type of challenge, but still, it may not be enough. One thing you can do for sure is reporting such a comment. Facebook will review your report, and if they found it goes against its community guidelines, they can suspend or permanently delete their account.

You can change it from the public to friends or friends of friends. It basically changes who can comment on your post to only friends added to your Facebook account.

Can we Completely Disable or Turn off Comments on our Post?

Unfortunately, as Facebook doesn’t completely allow you to disable or turn off comments on your posts except if you are in a group, we can’t. Anyone added to your friendliest will be able to like, comment, and share your post easily.

You can turn off comments on your group, but you cant do it on your personal profile or any of your posts.
However, you can change the settings from public to friends or friends of friends. It would be best if you limit it to friends.

Another thing you can do is either hide or delete their comments. It would make more sense to delete such comments rather than leaving them in your posts.

How to Delete or Hide Comments?

You can easily delete and hide such comments which you may not agree with or are typically a troll. To do this, go back to your profile and tap on the respective posts or pictures. Then, hold one of your comments where you can find the hide and delete option. And it’s up to you to either delete or hide such comments.

Can I Turn off Comments on the Group post?

The answer is yes. You can easily turn off comments in Facebook Group posts. Just choose the post on the group for which you don’t want any comment at all.

Then, click the three-dotted icon in the top right corner, and you can find the “Turn off Comments” option. Click on it, which will eventually turn off comments of the post from the group.

Can We Stalk Other Profiles?

As Facebook keeps getting updated frequently. So, you must use the latest version of the application or browser, which is updated too.

There is no official information about it, but it is believed that you can post up to 8k comments on Facebook. It may or may not be true. I guess people won’t be that free to post 8k comments.
