How to Turn Off the Comment Ranking on Facebook

By default, Facebook shows the “Most Relevant” comments for posts of the page and profile with a large number of followers.

As a result, you’ll likely see comments made by your friends, verified profiles and pages, and with the most likes and replies at the top.

You can turn off this comment ranking if you wish. By doing so, the comments will appear in chronological order.

Check out how to do this on your profile or page on a PC. 

Notes

  • This feature is disabled for profiles with fewer followers. However, you can turn it on if you wish, and the steps to do so are below.
  • It’s not possible to do this task for a page on Android or iPhone. But for your profile, you can.
  • You must be an admin if you want to do this for a page or the owner if you want to do this for a profile.
