Can acquaintances see my comments?

When you leave a remark on a friend's photo, everyone who can see the photo may see your comment, even if they aren't your friends. Anyone can view your comment if your friend's images are publicly displayed. Even people who are not friends will be able to read your comments if you post them on public groups or forums.

Who sees your Facebook comments?

However, if your friends can also see the photo, they will see the remark. For example, if you remark on a common friend's photo, only mutual friends will see the comment on your wall; but, if you comment on a photo on a public page or a friend's profile that is accessible to the public, the comment will be seen by everyone. This means that you should be careful what you say on social networking sites like Facebook because it can be read by anyone.

In fact, according to recent statistics published on the Facebook website, nearly half of all Americans use the site, and almost one-third of American adults under 30 years old use it. In other words, over 100 million people around the world are using Facebook, and as many as 50 million of them may see your private information such as photos, emails, and phone numbers.

When you post something on Facebook, it goes into the "public eye". This means that anyone who has access to your computer screen can see it. If you aren't happy about this, you should not post anything on Facebook that you do not want the whole world to see.

Only your friends can see your private information, so if you don't want strangers to see things you have posted on public pages, then don't tell everyone about your embarrassing medical condition or violent reaction to alcohol.

Do my Facebook friends see what I comment on?

Facebook's Wall For example, if you remark on a common friend's photo, only mutual friends will see the comment on your wall; but, if you comment on a photo on a public page or a friend's profile that is accessible to the public, the comment will be seen by everyone. Additionally, if someone clicks on the link in your comment and visits a webpage containing that photo, they will see your comment.

Can a friend of a friend see your comment?

If you leave a remark on anything and the person who posted it shares it with friends-of-friends, their friends-of-friends will be able to view your comment. This, I believe, is also true of public groups. Some groups are private, so those remarks would only be visible to group members. But if you're in a group with other people, they can share that group with their friends-of-friends, etc.

Can a person see your comment on a post?

When you leave a remark on someone's post (status update, link, photo, or anything else they've posted), everybody who can view the original post will also see your comment. The symbol next to the original post allows you to easily assess its privacy setting. If it has a red circle with a black dot in it, then everyone can read it. If it has a green circle with an arrow pointing inside it, then only those who are signed in to the specific service can read it.

Can acquaintances see my friend list?

Unless you have your privacy settings on those images set to Custom: Friends except Acquaintances, Facebook friends added to your acquaintances list will be able to access your photos. When you pick the custom privacy option, you may selectively share or conceal anything from certain people. For example, if you didn't want your parents to know that you like dressing up as a nurse for Halloween, you could select the custom option and hide this information from them.

An acquaintance is defined as a person who knows you but does not consider you a friend. Your friends can see everything you post, while your acquaintances can view some but not all of your content. If you add someone as a friend, they will then be able to see all of your posts no matter what level of privacy you have assigned to each one.

However, unless you want everyone to see your acquaintance list, we wouldn't recommend making it public. Other users may take advantage of this feature and look through your contacts to find others to add as acquaintances, so don't leave these list open to the public.

You can also block individuals from seeing your acquaintance list by clicking the "X" next to their names. Then click "Block user" under the Privacy menu in the top-right corner of the screen. You can always change your mind and unblock them at a later date.

Can a restricted friend see my likes and comments on posts by mutual friends?

No If a person is not allowed to use Facebook, they will not be able to see when a common friend likes or comments. The accessibility and viewability of items put on timelines are determined by your privacy settings. Engagement (likes or comments) on such postings is included. However, if you have blocked the person from having access to your timeline, then they would not be able to see what you like or comment on.

Can someone see if you’ve hidden their comment?

Alternatives for social media managers Hide the Facebook remark and it will be hidden from everyone except that person and their friends. They won't realize the comment is hidden, allowing you to dodge any potential repercussions. The Facebook comment will be deleted, and no one will be able to view it.
