Once you have activated facebook timeline in you profile – if you haven’t yet, here is how you will get facebook timeline – you will notice that your timeline will be full of old posts, photos and comments, all visible to anyone.
However, – specially if you are a very social person – this will take you days to clear out which posts you want to keep hidden and which public.
Before you start thinking of removing facebook timeline and switching back to the old wall version, fortunately, we have a way for you to bulk change the visibility of old Facebook posts so that they are not public.
How to hide old facebook posts from the “Public” in your facebook timeline in 3 steps:
- Go at the top right of your facebook page, click on the drop-down arrow and then select privacy settings.
- Jump to the section “Limit the Audience for Past Posts” and choose to “Manage Past Post Visibility“
3. A pop up box will appear. To preset all your old posts hidden from your timeline click on the “Limit Old Posts” button.
This way all of the posts or photos or comments or anything that had visibility status “Friends of Friends” or “Public”, will become private, so they won’t appear in to your friends or to anyone than you in your facebook timeline.
