Have you ever made a lengthy post and some person reacted with a sad emoji without reading the post to the end or even commented a “happy birthday” on a post picture you posted with a lengthy caption mistaking the long write-up to be the ” story of your life”? Or your funny piece to be a sad story? The feeling can be painful, but there is a way to fix that.

When To Delete Your Comment or Reaction on Facebook 

You may desire to delete or edit your comment on your post or post made by another person if you feel that your comment was offensive to the poster or that such a comment could cause your account to be restricted by Facebook.

If your comment is misinterpreted, you may want to delete such a comment for the sake of your reputation and safety from being attacked by ‘Facebook frequents’. We have repeatedly seen on Facebook and other social media platforms how ‘online in-laws ‘ and fans go all out to render insult to anyone who says a contradictory word about their role models.

If you feel that your comment has been misinterpreted or has so many negative responses, it will be in your interest to delete such a comment.

However, the same applies to your likes or reactions to a Facebook post. If you had misinterpreted the message or photograph that was posted and reacted wrongly, you could easily unlike or ‘un-react’ or, better still, change the reaction if your reaction does not sit well with the post or with you.
