how to turn off comments in facebook posts


Social media can be a difficult place to navigate when sharing personal thoughts or images. Sometimes, feedback is welcomed in the form of comments on Facebook, other times it is not. Then there are times when the discussion on a post gets complicated such that you want to disable commenting on it altogether. Sadly, there is no way for Facebook users to turn off comments on posts on their Facebook Wall.
However, users can do so in case of group posts. The only caveat is that only group admins can turn off comments on a post in a Facebook group. So, if you’re a group admin and you want to stop commenting on a specific post, you need to:

step 2: From your feed, click Groups in the left menu and select your group.

step 3: If you don’t see the group, click the View more option to view the group.

step 4: Now, go to the post for which you want to turn off comments.

Step 5: Then click on the three dots and then select Stop Commenting.

Whereas Facebook does not allow users to restrict comments on individual posts. What users can do instead is add a Facebook friend to the restricted list. Now, adding a friend to the Restricted List will allow them to view publicly available information, but not that which is shared only with friends on the platform.

“When you add someone to your Restricted List, you’ll still be friends with them on Facebook, but they can only share your public information (example: your posts and profile information that you choose to make public) and post you. You’ll be able to tag them,” says Facebook. So, here’s how you can add people to the restricted list on Facebook.
