Learn how to adjust your Facebook privacy settings to change who can see your posts in this free lesson.
If you ever need to review or modify what you've posted in the past, you can use the Activity Log. Every action you make on Facebook—from posts to comments to likes—is recorded in the Activity Log. From here, it's easy to review your past activity. You'll also be able to manage posts your friends have shared on your Timeline, including the option to hide posts.
To access your Activity Log, navigate to your Timeline, then select Activity Log.
Click the buttons in the interactive below to learn more about using the Activity Log.
You can approve posts from your friends before they appear on your Timeline using Timeline Review.
Here, you can review any post you've made using the Publisher, posts your friends have shared on your Timeline, and any posts you've hidden from your Timeline.
Here, you can review recently tagged photos of you, as well as your recent likes and comments. You can also choose to hide likes from your Timeline if you don't want to share this information with your friends.
Here, you can review what your apps have posted to your Timeline, such as recent recommendations or game activity. You can even set the audience level for each app to control who can see future app activity on your Timeline.
You can always change the privacy level for your own past posts using the audience selector, just as you would when using the Publisher.
Sometimes you may want to hide a post from your Timeline. Simply click the Edit button next to any post in your Activity Log, then select the desired option from the drop-down menu.
Here, you can review all of your activity on Facebook, including your recent updates and anything your Friends have posted to your Timeline. This option will be selected whenever you open the Activity Log.
You can approve tags from your friends before they appear on your Timeline using Tag Review.
You can also hide and delete posts directly from your Timeline. Simply click the drop-down arrow, then select the desired option.
