How to remove obscene comments from a Facebook post?

Date: 11 May 2016   Posted By: Vandana     Group: Computers    Category: Blog and websites   

I am not active at Facebook, but sometimes put up there posts from, either my own or that of other members. Recently, some guys have been posting obscene video links in the comments box of a few of the posts which is extremely disturbing, especially since my non-ISCian friends also check out my FB posts & see those videos (sometimes the video itself can be seen, without the need to click on the link put there).

I would like to know:
1. Is it possible to remove those comments/links myself?
2. How to block such people from posting comments at ANY of my FB posts?
3. Is it possible to report to FB people those who post obscene content so that they can take the needful action against such people?

If any of the above are possible, please give me step by step guidance for each of the above 3 queries, keeping in mind that I am not familiar which feature is located where at FB since I do not use it frequently. The quicker the expert guidance I get, the faster I can deal with this menace.

If you own the page or the status then you can remove the comments from those posts. However if the obscene comments are on the pages which you don't own or the post which is owned by another person then you can't remove the comments. You can't ban the person unless you are owner of the page. Also ban option doesn't work on the pages or the posts which are not owned by you.

In such case you have to report the comment to facebook for removal.

Here are the instructions to remove such comments.

1. Find the comment you wish to remove.
2. Find the cross mark at the right end of the comment.
3. Click on report link when you find the option.
4. Select proper option to report the comment.
5. Let facebook moderation remove such comments.

That's it. You can get the comments removed.
