How To Disable Comments on Facebook?

To get started, go to the Facebook app on your smartphone. Click on the three lines icon in the lower right corner of the screen. Scroll to the bottom of the page and find the “Settings and Privacy” column. Click on it. Next, click on the “Settings” button. The Facebook section with settings opens. Find the “Audience and visibility” block. Then click on the “Subscribers and public content” column. On the page that appears, find the “Comments on Public Posts” button. There will be three settings options: “Available to everyone,” “Friends of friends,” and “Friends.” Select “Friends.” If you make these settings, comments on your posts will only be visible to your Facebook friends. For other users, comments will be disabled.

After you press the desired access bar, the settings will be automatically updated.

Important: You can’t turn off comments for a specific post. If you do not want users to leave their comments under one post, you can hide it from everyone. Then the possibility of commenting will disappear.

It is worth noting that it is impossible to disable comments on a public page. On such a page, comments will always be open.

On the computer

To turn off comments on posts from your computer, go to the Facebook website using a browser. Log in to your account. Left-click on the arrow-shaped icon in the upper right corner of the screen. In the window that appears, select “Settings and privacy” and click on it with the left mouse button.

In the next window, select the “Settings” subsection and click on it with the left mouse button.

In the block on the left side of the page, find the “Public publications” button and click on it with the left mouse button.

On the page with access settings that appear, find the line “Comments on public publications.” To the right of the line, there will be an “Edit” button. Click on it with the left mouse button.

Now you can choose who can comment on your posts. There are three items on the list: “Available to everyone,” “Friends of friends,” and “Friends.” When you select the desired item, the settings will be saved automatically.

Facebook does not provide the ability to completely hide comments from your friends or from all users in general. Those users who are on the friend’s list will always be able to leave comments on your photos and posts.

In a group

To turn off comments in a group, go to the Facebook app on your smartphone. Go to your group.

Navigate to the desired post. Click on the three dots icon in the upper right corner of the wall post.

You will see a window with several lines. Select the line “Who can comment on this post?”. Click on it.

Next, a choice will appear: “Available to everyone,” “Pages to which you are subscribed,” “Profiles and pages that you mentioned.” Click on the desired item. Saving will happen automatically.

If you are not subscribed to anyone from your group, then, accordingly, no one will be able to comment on the publication. Also, if no other profiles are mentioned in the publication, then no one will be able to comment on this post either.
