How To Delete All Facebook Comments at Once

bulk delete all facebook comments

Bulk Delete All Facebook Comments

Facebook used in moderation is fine, but some have a tendency to go a bit too far. Unfortunately humans were not made for non verbal / text based communication. Misinterpretation is a problem that can cause  loss of friends or even family. This was particularly true during the last election cycle where friends may have been removed following heated comments and political debates.  Recent news of Facebook’s privacy violations is the final nail in the coffin for many. If you are feeling the need to back away from social media, then you’ll want to bulk delete all Facebook posts and comments. Deleting all your posts should be the first step before closing your account, otherwise FB archives all your comments forever…

No Facebook comment need live forever.

There is no rule that says your Facebook comments need to go down in history. I for one don’t want some archaeologist studying my comments 10,000 years from now…or even 10 days from now. Once a post is seen, it ages out very quickly and only has archival value, sometimes to your disadvantage.
So, how can you bulk delete all Facebook  posts in one swipe? It’s actually pretty easy using an automation add-on originally released as  F___book Post Manager (FPM) for Chrome. Believe me, the process of deleting all your past Facebook posts will set you free.

UPDATE: Due to trademark issues, this add on is now called: Social Book Post Manager

Note: This process will only work from Google’s Chrome Browser running on a desktop PC or laptop. Does not work on a phone. Tablets untested. Other versions that ran on FireFox using Greasemonkey and a batch script no longer work (as of July 21 2017).

Bulk Delete All Facebook Comments Process:

  1. First, get Chrome browser running on a desktop PC – GET CHROME BROWSER
  2. Next download and install the: Social Book Post Manager ADD-ON FOR CHROME
  3. Please note, the above link can take some time to load, but it will.
  4. Open your Facebook account, login and go to your Activity Log
  5. Once on your activity log page, hit F5 to refresh the screen.
  6. Now look for this small icon in the upper right corner of your browser  > bulk delete all facebook post fpm icon
  7. Clicking the icon will open the panel similar to that shown below.
  8. Select the range you would like to deleted or use SELECT ALL
  9. Click the DELETE button to begin the process, it may take several hours. Mine took days.

The FPM add on can also remove manage all post privacy, hide/unhide posts or unlike all your likes.  Total Facebook account control.
You are now free!

    It worked great on my account but took almost 8 hours to erase everything back to 2009. Gotta remember, it is basically just an automation add-on that has to do a one by one deletion and wait for each comment to be deleted as if done by hand…minus all your time and a serious case of carpal tunnel.

    This was fantastic, thank you!! Now… do you have a way to delete others comments? Im an admin in a prayer group, and when people leave, the posts turn grey. I’d like a way to delete the grey posts and/or comments. Thank you again for this!!

    As of August 14 2018, this add on still works perfectly on Chrome browser. It takes a while to complete because it has to emulate a human and allow for page reload times. It basically automates the manual process of deleting all your posts. Once it starts running, leave the browser window open, turn off your monitor and go fishing, take a long walk or let it run overnight. Mine took about 28 hours to deleted 6 years worth of posts. Well worth the wait. Please report any issues and we’ll help you get it working for free.

    Does this only delete your posts, or does it also delete all the comments you’ve made?

    comments and posts and likes too if you wish – options to delete just some or everything.

    Will this delete comments from groups you have left?

    It should delete all active facebook comments.
