This tutorial covers how to bulk hide Facebook posts. You can hide any Facebook post from your timeline as there is a built-in option for each post. However, this Facebook feature is not very helpful when we have to hide Facebook posts in bulk. Still, you can bulk hide FB posts in a matter of seconds using a few mouse clicks. You will be able to select the year and then a month for that particular year and all such Facebook posts for that year and month will be hidden. You can even set a year and all months for that year to hide Facebook posts. Apart from that, a filter can also be applied which will contain a custom text. Based on that text, your posts are selected to make them hidden.
To bulk hide Facebook posts, you need to use a free “Social Book Post Manager” Chrome extension. This action will use “Activity Log” page of your Facebook account and help you hide all the posts for the specified year and month(s). You can also uncheck some posts before hiding them.
The screenshot above clearly shows that I was able to hide 11 posts at once using this free Chrome extension. Later, you can also unhide all such Facebook posts whenever needed.
