Here is video proof that Facebook is not letting people delete their own comments. The video shows me trying to delete two different comments, using three different browsers: Chrome, Firefox, and Opera. Watch the video and see for yourself. It’s been like this for at least several days now (not sure when it started). Very frustrating!
Approximately 30 minutes after posting this article, suddenly I can delete my own comments again on Facebook. I am sure it is a coincidence wink wink lol. Either way, I will leave this article up just in case anyone else experiences that 1 weird glitch where you can’t delete your own comments. Have fun.
Tip: To report a problem with FB, click the Question mark icon in the upper-right menu (viewing web page), then select “Report a problem”.
Can’t delete your own comments
Watch an MP4 video that demonstrates the FB “can’t delete comments” problem. Update: this issue was resolved 30 minutes after posting this article. So video removed to save bandwidth and resources.
Sorry for the poor production quality. I only have so much allotted free time to spend farting around and troubleshooting on Facebook. If you watch closely, however, you will see that clearly that something (probably just a weird bug) is preventing me from deleting my own comments. It’s been happening for several days now. I tend to delete FB crap frequently, because I am a thoughtful person who will go back and remove any weird comments or posts that I think are silly, low quality, or just some sort of rant/venting.
Also notice in the video: the comments that I am trying to delete DO NOT show up on my “Activity Log”, so impossible to try deleting from that location. I.e., the comments I am trying to delete were posted AFTER the latest post that shows in my Activity Log. So another/related weird Facebook problem/bug.
No more commenting on FB
So now looks like I can’t comment anymore on Facebook. Because there is nothing worse than wanting to delete some stupid comment and not being able to do it. Quite simply: there are better, funner things to do than sit around and wonder why Facebook isn’t working properly.
Facebook: this is either a bug, or shenanigans, or who knows maybe it’s some sort of new “feature” or something. I am hoping it’s just a bug. But either way, I won’t be commenting on your site until the issue is resolved and I can once again delete my own comments.
Take Home Message
Be super careful leaving comments and posting on Facebook. Unless you literally NEVER will need to delete anything (or don’t mind waiting indefinitely until some weird bug is fixed), best to play it safe and think carefully before sharing your thoughts while surfing around looking at other people’s goofy FB nonsense.
