This tutorial explains how to bulk delete Facebook posts. You can select a specific year and month and then delete all your Facebook posts for that particular time period. Apart from selecting year and month, you can further add filter to scan and select those posts for deletion that contains or does not contain specified text. Once you have set the preferences, you will be able to bulk delete Facebook posts with just two mouse clicks. For doing this, I am covering a free Chrome extension, called “Social Book Post Manager“.
This Chrome extension takes the help of activity log of your Facebook account to scan posts for deletion (based on the options set by you). You can use the pop-up of this extension to adjust preferences and then the extension will scan all posts from the activity log. Once the scanning is completed, it automatically selects all the posts that match the set criteria and then you are able to delete Facebook posts in bulk.
In the screenshot above, you can see a pop-up of this extension where it shows my Facebook posts were deleted based on the preferences set by me.
Note: This extension also selects all comments, liked pages, etc., after scanning. In that case, you need to manually uncheck such items in order to avoid their deletion and keep check boxes selected for the posts added by you on your Facebook timeline. Also note this extension might not be able to delete some posts even after confirming the deletion. In that case, you need to use delete option of this Chrome extension again.

Facebook already provides option to delete posts as well as a particular item from activity log. But, the thing is deleting Facebook posts in bulk is not available. Therefore, this Chrome extension is a better option to bulk delete Facebook posts. Using this extension is way too easy as you just need to select year and month and add additional text which is optional to scan posts from activity log and then delete those posts.
