By default, anyone can post on a Facebook Page, regardless of the post’s content. While this feature is great for users who want to make comments and interact publicly with a Facebook Page, it may also lead to spam, which are posts advertising other businesses or inappropriate content. As a Facebook Page owner, you should review user posts before letting them go live on your page. By doing so, you are protecting the public image of your page and your users from bad content.
Note: This tutorial is written and works only for the desktop version of Facebook. The mobile versions of Facebook, unfortunately, do not provide control over this setting.
How to review user posts on a Facebook Page:
1. Log in to your Facebook account, and go to the Facebook Page that you want to manage. You can navigate to the page by clicking on the page’s name on the right side of the timeline.
2. Once the page is loaded, click the Settings button at the top-right of the page.
3. Under the General section, find the Visitors Posts option, click on it, select Allow Visitors to the Page to Publish Posts, and then select Review posts by other people before they are published to the Page.
4. Click Save Changes to preserve the setting. From this point, all page posts made by other users will need your approval before going public.
5. In order to review visitors’ posts, go to Settings -> Activity Log.
6. Select the Posts by Others option on the left-side panel.
7. On the right side of the screen, you will find all pending posts. In order to approve a post, click the block sign, and select Allowed on Page. If you find several spam posts, select Report/Mark as Spam or Ban From Page to stop the user from posting content to the page.
