Profile And Tagging For Facebook Timeline

Facebook provides the options of curating the timeline. The platform provides the option to change the setting to hide certain comment that contains certain words. So you can add any words that are very common like "am" or "will" and when someone comment with these words under your post, their comment will automatically hide.

In the section of reviewing, when someone tags you in the post, you can take time to review the post before the post appears on your timeline, which allows the control of your content.


When you enable this, it let you review your post you are tagged in, but they can still appear in the search result, a news feed, and other places of Facebook.

Facebook also lets you review the tag before it appears on the timeline. Suppose someone adds a tag to your post who is not on your friend list, Facebook will ask you before posting.

All these options provided allow more control over your post and timeline, but these are not official saying of disabling the comment. If you really want to disable all the comments, throw different common words in it and all comments will hide.

Chrome Extension

Some of the third Part tools and chrome extension available that provides more control and task ability over the social media platform.
