How to disable Facebook Comments

We have decided to divide our article into small chapters, to help you better understand how to do this.
Comments on Facebook can in fact be deleted in different forms and with different steps.
Don't worry, as we said in the preface it's all very simple.
We will explain to you now how to disable comments on Facebook from Groups, Pages and from your Personal Profile.
You just have to continue reading.

How to disable comments on public posts on Facebook profiles

The first element from which we start is the deactivation of comments on Facebook profiles.
Removing comments, as you will do from pages and groups, is not possible but it is useful to know how to interact to block some “dangerous” elements from your profile.
Few people know that if certain conditions are not set, our profile is accessible to anyone, a situation that is not exactly safe.

As we told you our Facebook profile is not safe until we set certain conditions.
To do this we must go to the comments settings page on Facebook.
Here we can set filters dedicated to the protection of our accounts.

The first is dedicated to people who can follow us, if we set everyone up, even those who are not among our friends will be able to see and comment on our posts.
Se let's set Friends, only our contacts will be able to interact with us.
Our advice is to always set this option with Friends.

Now go to the second part of the page where you will see Comments on Public Posts.
Here you can customize your choice with the settings above and by adding the friends category of friends.
In this case, even those who are among your friends' friends will be able to comment and see your posts.
Here, too, our advice is to set Friends.

Disable Comments on New Posts on Facebook

If we decide for the former here are the steps on how to disable comments on new posts on Facebook.

1) Create a new post
2) Select News section (usually already selected)
3) Click on the right side where you will see Everyone or Friends (if you followed our comments settings steps)
4) Select who will be able to see the Post and then interact with it
Then choose among Friends, Friends except (you can decide to delete the post to some friends), Specific Friends (only to the friends you select), Only me, Custom and Friends List.
