How To Delete A Facebook Post

Dear Computer Lady,

How do you delete a post on Facebook?

Thanks, Margaret

Dear Margaret,

If you created a post, or the post is on your timeline (the page you see when you click on your name in the blue bar) you can simply delete it following these directions:

1. Sign into your facebook account.

2. Find the post you want to remove.

3. Click the three dots in the upper-right corner of the post.

4. Click “Delete” in the context menu that appears.

5. Click “Delete Post” in the dialog box that appears.

If you are trying to remove a post in your news feed (the page you see when you click “Home” in the blue bar) that you did not create, you can’t delete it, but you can remove it from your feed so that you don’t see it anymore. Here is how:

1. Sign into your facebook account.

2. Find the post in your news feed that you want to remove.

3. Click the three dots in the upper-right corner of the post.

4. Click “Hide Post” in the context menu that appears.

That’s all there is to it.

Elizabeth
