Is there a way on Facebook to block all commenting on a post, while still allow it to be read?

I have a post, whose active commenting has gotten out of control. The post and the initial comments are valuable and I would like to keep them available for my readers/followers, but I need to stop the on-going comments completely.

Any suggestions?

There is no way to prevent your friends from commenting on something they can see.

You can set audience as 'Only me', but in that case it will be visible to you only.


Only Facebook pages (like business/fan pages, as opposed to personal timelines) can be moderated.

If you're having a wide audience and make public posts that you want to moderate, I suggest you create such a page rather than use your personal timeline.
