How to delete a comment on Facebook

Facebook offers us to delete the unwanted comments which we have posted or posted by others on our post. There can be various reasons to delete Facebook comments. We can delete a comment when

  1. The comment is offensive to others.
  2. The comment is highly political.
  3. The comment is inappropriate.
  4. The comment is spam.

There is no need to delete a comment, either if it is negative, political or a comment mentioning a competitor. Remember that it is better to have a conversation through messages rather than comments because we have more control over the messages as compared to comments.

When we delete a comment, all the replies on that comment will also be deleted. We cannot delete a comment from another person's post expect our comment, which we have written to that person's post.
