How to Turn off Comments on Facebook (2021)

Facebook is a challenging place with thousands of people, if not millions, who roam around with their own opinions. Moreover, these people feel obligated to bestow their opinion on anything they may stumble upon. And sometimes they may fill our posts with senseless ads. In situations like these, it’s quite normal for anyone to feel muggy. Unfortunately, Facebook doesn’t provide its users the option to get rid of the comment section for good. Nevertheless, there is a trick you can use to turn off your comments on Facebook.

Today, we will learn some little tips to ease our minds against this constant current of voices.

Facebook is a massive platform. This is true if you have many friends, followers, or audiences that follow you through your life journey. They can find the right to comment on everything you post, and it can be a headache to deal with these people.

However, you can always pull yourself back and get some privacy on your own. Wouldn’t it be good to disable comments forever? Then you wouldn’t have to deal with teenagers asking dumb questions, ladies or gentlemen dropping hearts on your photos, and more.

There’s a way that can increase your privacy to some extent, but don’t expect miracles.

Note: This option only works for your account. There are other ways of solutions for Facebook Pages and Groups.

    1. Puzzled, so with the mighty Facebook, I cannot disable comments for a single post? Really, turn off commenting cannot be in the arrow down menu, so I can customize each post? What???????

  1. I wish FB would give us more control over our own posts on our own wall. We should be able to disable comments for a specific post and not all posts, just as a group administrator can do. If it’s our wall, why shouldn’t we be able to have that control? What does FB gain by denying it to us?

  2. I tried following these steps for a fb page but there is no “Turn Off Comments” when I click the three dots… Anyone have the same issue?

    Steps:
    Select group posts which you don’t want to receive any comments.
    Click on the three-dotted icon at the upper right corner of the post.
    Click on “Turn Off Comments.”
    Any comments for this particular posts are restricted

    1. I have the same issue. But I have seen people disable comments on a post before, and recently even. The original post remains and the comments up to the point where comments were turned off. So you could see everything but you could not comment anymore. I don’t understand why I cannot disable comments on a post on my own wall.

    1. Sadly you cannot turn off commenting on posts on a facebook page just in groups. Which is a shame as we’re taking a beating over holocaust remembrance and fb don’t think anti-semitism is a breach of their community rules!

  3. Facebook needs to do more with this. I enjoy posting humor and it offends some of my friends so I don’t want them to be able to comment and start arguing on my posts. It makes me anxious.

  4. I have been able to turn off comments but now that is no longer an option when I click the three dots on something I have posted. Where did this option go?

  5. How do celebrities and others post on FB yet you can’t comment? I’ve seen this many times on FB. I follow a few people that NEVER allows comments. Why is it ok for some but not all?

    1. It seems like you can only turn off public comments. Yet, celebrities’ pages may not be profiles but Facebook pages. It is possible to turn off commenting on a FB page.

  6. Hi, I made a comment on Michael Moores page and my son somehow got a notification that I had done that. How can I stop people from seeing posts that I make to other Facebook pages like Moores without affecting my page comments?

  7. There is another way to restrict those certain people who always want to comment on your posts. Go to the downward pointing triangle icon at the top of your Facebook page. Click on “settings”. Go to the menu on the left and click on “Blocking”. The top category is “Restrictions”. In the upper right corner of that window is “Edit List”. Click on it. Below the words “Edit Restricted” is a drop down menu with only two options. Click on the “Friends” option. All of your friends should show up below. Click on each one you wish to restrict. When you are done, Click on “Finish” in the lower right corner. Now those individuals friends you have selected wil only be able to view your public posts. When you add a friend to your Restricted list, they won’t see posts on Facebook that you share only to Friends. They may still see things you share to Public or on a mutual friend’s timeline, and posts they’re tagged in. Facebook doesn’t notify your friends when you add them to your Restricted list.

  8. Facebook is more interested in getting everyone’s information to sell than actually prevent cyber bullying. If they actually gave a damn, then this would have been one of the first things they added.

  9. Please add the feature on how to turn off commenting on either pictures or post… that would be an awesome feature. & a lot have asked for it already.. please addd… thanks you!!!
    (IG has it & a lot love it) ???
