How to Delete Posts on a Facebook News Feed

The Facebook News Feed keeps you connected to your social network. As your friends add their own status updates, photos, videos and links, their posts appear in your News Feed. The feed updates automatically, and you have the ability to interact with others as they post. If someone updates with material that you object to, or if you just want to get rid of a particular message, remove the post.

Step

Sign in to Facebook and go to your Home page. This contains your Facebook News Feed.

Step

Find the post to delete on your News Feed.

Step

Place your cursor over the post to reveal an "X" in the top-right corner. This is the "Remove" button.

Step

Click the "Remove" button. Choose "Hide This Post" from the menu. Facebook will remove the post.
