Everything you have done on the website is logged in your Activity Log in chronological order, regardless of whether you spend hours each day posting, liking, and commenting on Facebook or whether you haven’t used the social networking site in weeks.
Using the Activity Log can make it simple to locate a post, comment, or other action you want to share or revisit. Other times, though, you just want to get rid of a trace of a specific Facebook activity.
Although you can’t remove every record of activity from your Facebook Activity Log at once, you can do it one by one.
This is the procedure.
How to clear your Activity Log on Facebook
- Log into your Facebook account on your Mac or PC and click the little downward-facing arrow at the top right corner of the screen, then click “Activity Log.”
- Scroll to find an item you want to remove and click on the pencil icon at the end of the row.
- Depending on the type of activity you’re looking to clear, you will have the option to “Delete” if it is your own post or comment; “Unlike” a post; “Unfriend” someone; or change a post’s viewing status to hide it from your timeline.
If you want to delete your Facebook search history as well, select “Search History” from the menu that appears after clicking “MORE” in the left-hand column of the Activity Log page.
