When you hide a comment on facebook? In situations of spam and offensive or inappropriate content that violates the rules of your group or page, hiding comments can be a good compromise. The comment will remain in the group or under the post, but other users won’t see it and can’t react to it. However, the commenter will still be able to see it and reply to it as long as they’re on the person’s friend list. Hide is also a better option than delete because social media users often react badly to seeing their content censored. They might even go on a rant about it, turning one negative comment into an endless stream of vitriol that can hurt your brand and damage your advertising.
How do I hide comments on FB?
Unless you are an admin or moderator of a group or page, you only have the option to hide or delete a comment. But if you do have access to this feature, use it sparingly. It’s important to encourage positive comments and interaction from your fans, but if you’re being hit by trolls, haters, spammers or other negative elements on a regular basis, you should consider hiding these comments.
Whenever you click on the three little dots next to a comment, a menu will open up that allows you to delete it, hide it or report it to Facebook (and sometimes ban the user). When you hide a comment the author of the comment will not be notified and they won’t know that their comment was hidden.
