Is there any way to not allow people commenting on posts of my Facebook page?

Unfortunately Facebook hasn't enabled a way to disable comments on pages.

People have already asked this question on Facebook Help Page and the answer provided by Facebook Help Team is How do I allow or disable posts by other people on my Page?

Here are some links:

How do you disable commenting from others on your Facebook page?
Can I turn off "comments" on things posted to my page - don't want comments?
How can I disable comments on my Facebook fan page posts?

  • "Unfortunately Facebook hasn't enabled a way to disable comments on pages" - this isn't true, your first link has also been updated by facebook since you posted it to explain the process. – Mousey Aug 26 '15 at 20:36

  1. Disabling comments this is for preventing replies to your posts which would appear under your posts. There is no facebook feature to do this but there is a workaround which automatically hides are comments - so they are visible to only the person who wrote them and their friends list.

Instructions

In your page's Settings, go to General, then Page Moderation.

Add very common words to the moderation box with commas between them, eg a, the, and, like, it, to

A long list of common English words can be found here and copied across. It's also a good idea to add common 'words' used to avoid moderation and used by spammers, or text speak/emojis, eg lol, lmao, rofl, <3, (y), p0rn, p3n1s, pen1s, viagra, h0t, xxx, x, xxxx, click, buy, offer, win, sale, watch

Next go to Profanity Filter and set it to Strong to block even more words.

Regular comments can be prevented from posting by finding on of their comments and using Ban user to add them to your ban list.

  1. Disabling posts on your page's timeline. This mostly deals with posts from other facebook pages or bloggers linking to their own pages. The information from facebook's help page has changed in the last week, although I'm not sure when this feature was available from.

It can now be done from a desktop computer using https://www.facebook.com/yourpagename/settings/?tab=settings&view - go to Visitor Posts and you have different options:

  • Allow Photos and Comments
  • Notify me so I can Review posts before they appear on the page
  • Do not allow Visitors to post to the page

    1. Preventing ratings and reviews instructions

Lastly, a custom user script can be used to automatically delete all comments without you needing to view them,it would only run when you visit the page from your local machine (or another machine with the script installed). You need to install Greasemonkey (for Firefox) or Tampermonkey to set this up. If a userscript isn't already there for it then you would need to write your own (many facebook exampls there).

  • I didn't see anything extra which makes your answer unique. All the information I have already provided in my answer. – serenesat Aug 24 '15 at 5:17
  • @serenesat Your post says it's not possible. Mine gives the direct link to do it, instructions and the different options available for preventing comments on facebook pages. I actually can't see any similarity to your answer. – Mousey Aug 24 '15 at 10:17
  • Link you have provided is same as mine. And its says How do I allow or disable posts by other people on my Page? Its not about comment. – serenesat Aug 24 '15 at 11:54
  • you misquoted the link in your answer – Mousey Aug 24 '15 at 11:59
