Did I just embarrass myself on Facebook?

Asked by kevbo (25662points) December 29th, 2007

I made a half naked comment on a half naked photo. The item popped up in my mini-feed. Does that mean it went out on my news feed to my friends and relatives?

I immediately hid the story and set everything to not publish.

Yes, when you make comments anywhere, including photos, group walls, discussion boards, etc. (until you change your settings so that doesn’t happen), it will show up in the mini-feed when people look at your profile, and also on all your friends’ news feeds on their homepages.

God, that’s embarrassing. Thanks.

So, I assume changing the settings isn’t retroactive?

You can still delete the comment. Just click “delete comment” and it should be gone for life

also you can delete stuff from your own profile’s mini-feed by clicking the Xs. Also you should consider permanently disabling comments . As for the actual question itself, once you delete it from your feed it does not go to any one else ‘s feed

Deleted the comment as you suggested. So am I correct (finger’s crossed) in understanding it’s not going to show up anywhere? I did hide the mini-feed story.

Thank you both in my moment of need.

yeah, if the comment was deleted, AND it was hidden from the mini-feed, it should be effectively neutralized. this seems to work, i have had to do it too many times for my own good

Removing the comment from the mini-feed is enough to hide it from others, unless they have access to the profile that you commented on.
