How to delete your old Facebook posts in bulk
Before starting, keep in mind that the bulk delete/archive feature at the time writing the article is only available on Facebook’s mobile apps (Android, iOS, and Lite). So make sure you are following this guide through the Facebook mobile app.
- Log in to the Facebook app on your phone;
- Go to profile and click the three dots to enter the menu;
- Click on Activity Log> Manage Activity> Select “Your Posts”;
- Click the small box next to your posts to archive or delete posts;
- Click the “Trash” or “Archive” accordingly.
Facebook saves the deleted posts in the recycle bin for 30 days before they are permanently deleted in case a post is deleted by mistake. The archived/deleted posts will show up at Your Posts section.
So, that’s all about how to bulk delete your old posts on Facebook. It’s a bit disappointing that the bulk delete post option is not available on the Facebook desktop site.
