Deleting Facebook Posts From Your Mobile or iPad

by Daniel Hayes

How many times have you wanted to delete a Facebook post while on your mobile or your iPad but couldn’t? So, you’d go to your laptop or desktop to use the little “X” or “Delete” button. Well, now it’s easy…here’s how! This video is updated to show the new delete procedures from the Summer 2012 iOS update. Enjoy!

Thanks! I rarely post on facebook and was feeling a bit bold this morning. When I accidentally hit enter when trying to make a correction, I panicked! Thanks for keeping me from swearing off Facebook forever! Lol!

My pleasure, Debbi! I know EXACTLY how you feel! No reason to panic any longer, though…

I just installed an update (8/24/2012) and can’t delete comments the traditional way anymore! Any ideas?

Hi Kari- I updated too and when I swipe on my status I don’t get the “Delete” button anymore either, but a lite “X” for delete now appears. I’m on iPhone 4S and haven’t tested on any other platform. Hope this helps!

I delete it, but it keeps coming back.
