How To Turn Off Comments On Facebook Ads

Running a successful ad campaign on Facebook involves strategic decision-making, from the design and content of the ads to the settings you choose to manage them. One such setting that many advertisers grapple with is the ability to control the comments on their ads. In this blog, we will walk you through a simple step-by-step process on how to turn off comments on your Facebook ads.

Why Turn Off Comments?

Before we dive into the process, it’s worth understanding why one might want to turn off comments on their Facebook ads. Comments can be a double-edged sword. On one hand, they can encourage engagement and community-building. On the other hand, negative or inappropriate comments can create a poor image. Therefore, there are times when turning off comments might be a strategic decision.

How to Turn Off Comments on Facebook Ads

The simple truth is that you can’t directly disable comments on your Facebook ads. Facebook’s policy does not permit this. However, you can limit the visibility of comments by setting up a comment visibility restriction. This means that only the person who posted a comment and their friends can see it. Here, we will guide you on how to implement this workaround.

Steps to Restrict Comment Visibility

  1. Go to your Facebook Page and click on the Settings tab.
  2. From there, navigate to the General section.
  3. Scroll down to the Page Moderation section.
  4. Enter words that you believe people would use in a negative or inappropriate comment.
  5. Click on Save Changes.

With these steps, any comment that includes the words you listed will be hidden from public view, effectively turning off comments on your Facebook ads.

      // Navigate to your Facebook Page
      Go to Facebook Page -> Settings

      // Go to the General section
      Settings -> General

      // Go to Page Moderation
      General -> Page Moderation

      // Add words you want to hide
      Enter words -> Save Changes

Remember, while this isn’t a foolproof method, it can significantly help in maintaining a positive image for your brand or business on Facebook. However, it’s also worthwhile to consider other ways of managing negative comments such as responding professionally, or using the feedback to improve your services or products.
