Facebook is one of the most popular social media networks around. If you do use it often, and have plenty of people commenting on your posts, you may want to do something about it. Some of those comments may be inappropriate or something of the sort, and you can affect that. Unfortunately, your options are quite limited, due to the way Facebook does things. In this article, we’ll show you how to limit Facebook post comments.

You can’t exactly fully disable comments on your posts, but you can limit comments to friends or friends of friends. Do note that this goes only for ‘Public’ posts, though. On the flip side, if we’re talking about Facebook Group comments, then you can completely disable them, but only if you’re the admin of that Facebook Group, of course. In this particular case, we’re talking about personal posts, not Facebook groups.
