I always like to read appreciable comments on my posts and avoid seeing the ones that sound irrelevant. That’s why; I have turned on comment ranking for Facebook posts to keep unwanted remarks slightly away.
Do you also want to give a miss to less relevant comments? You should definitely take advantage of this well thought out feature. Besides, it would make your story appear more convincing or the one that has made more impact.
Note: Comment Ranking is designed for only public posts. Hence, ensure that you have allowed anyone to view your posts.
- In Facebook app → Menu Button → Settings → Account Settings → Privacy → tap on Who can see the people, pages and lists you follow? → select Public.
- On the web, go to facebook.com → menu button → Settings → Public Posts → click on the drop down menu and select Public.
How to Enable Comment Ranking for Facebook Posts on iPhone, iPad, and Android
Step #1. Open Facebook on your device and tap on Menu button.
Step #2. Now, scroll down and tap on Settings & Privacy Button. (On some iDevices you need to tap on Settings.)
Remaining steps are same for both, iDevice and Android device.
Step #3. Tap on Account Settings. (On some of the iDevices you need to tap on Account settings in the Popup Menu.)
Step #4. Next, tap on Public Posts.
Step #5. Finally, go to Comment Ranking section and select ON.
That’s it! Now, exit the settings.
Henceforth, the most suitable remarks will show up first on your story.
