How To Delete Your Comment On Facebook?

On Facebook, you can comment your thoughts and opinions on public and private posts. However, accidentally messed up wording or auto-correct can lead to unintended misunderstanding. To avoid any drama, you can delete your own comment or edit it.

Facebook has more than one billion concurrent users. Like you, everyone on Facebook can post a comment.

And when the user base is so humongous, you are bound to cross paths with a few black sheep. Some of the comments by them can be irrelevant, cringy, or borderline creepy.

Your “friends” on Facebook can comment whatever they wish to on your posts. Strangers can reply to your comments on public posts.

These comments can often be offending, hurtful, and harassing. Although Facebook implements sophisticated automation to moderate what goes on in the comment section, truth be told, it rarely does what it’s intended to do.

You can always manually clean up the mess when Facebook’s auto-moderation fails. In this article, we’ve discussed how to delete your own comment on Facebook as well as how to delete someone else’s comment on your Facebook post.
