Facebook doesn’t give you an option to disable all Facebook comments with the click of a button. However, Amit Giri knows how frustrating it can be run a Facebook page when people are constantly posting nasty things as comments. Obviously, to disable posts on your normal timeline by others, you must go into your Page’s settings under “Manage Permissions” and uncheck the boxes labeled “Everyone can post to YOUR PAGE TITLE’s timeline”, “Everyone can add photos and videos to YOUR PAGE TITLE’s timeline”, then select “Hidden from Page” under “Default visibility of posts by others on YOUR PAGE TITLE’s timeline:“.
Now, there is no option to disable comments on posts made by your page. Thanks Facebook. However, you can work around this using something EasySites.org has come up with. Find the box labeled “Moderation Blocklist:“. This blocklist is a list of words you have banned from appearing on your page. If someone has a post that includes one of these words, the post will be hidden from your page and you will be the only one who can view the comment. We have come up with a giant master list of 1,000 of the most commonly used words found by EasySites.org (Source: The Reading Teacher’s Book of Lists, Fourth Edition, © 2000 by Prentice Hall Authors: Fry, Kress & Fountoukidis) edited the formatting, and made it available for you here. Just copy and past the list below into the “ModerationBlocklist” section and people should have quite a hard time commenting on your posts. Obviously, they can still find a word or two not on your blocklist, however, all you need to do is add that word to your list if you find that someone managed to comment on your post.
- Locate the “Moderation Blocklist” box under “Manage Permissions” in your page’s settings
- Copy and paste the master list of the 1,000 most commonly used words below into the “Moderation Blocklist” box
- Click “Save Settings”
- Add any additional words (separated by commas) to the list if someone manages to comment on a Facebook post in the future
Hope this helped and remember EasySites.org is available to manage social media such as Facebook pages as well as design and develop easy-to-use websites using WordPress!
