Facebook is a popular social network worldwide, used for various purposes. For some, it is just a social network – a place where you can find out news about loved ones and chat with friends. For others, this platform allows promoting sales and earning money from advertising. If you belong to the latter category, hiding posts from the Facebook page will allow you always to offer up-to-date information and relevant advertising content.

Even if sometimes it seems better to delete a post, this is not always the best solution, and you are hiding it with a few clicks. Your hidden posts do not disappear forever. What if you changed your mind and decided to unhide your content?  

Whether you are using a desktop browser or a Facebook app on a mobile device, you can unhide a post on Facebook. Though the process to reveal a hidden post is not apparent, it is still straightforward. So let’s find out how you can unhide a post on Facebook.

Reasons to Unhide a Post on Facebook

As an admin of your Facebook page, you get complete control over the content within your Facebook account. While you may have specific reasons to hide your content, there are valid reasons to reveal the post back. For instance, you may want to unhide a post on Facebook due to the following reasons.

  • You never wanted to hide a post and did that by mistake.
  • You decided to make specific memories less visible, but you no longer think that the specific content should be hidden as time passes.
  • You acted on emotions, and later you realized that the post was no longer harmful to your reputation.

Whether it is one of the reasons above or your specific situation, be sure that you want to get the post back on your timeline before you follow the further steps.
