How to Clear Facebook Activity Log
Patiently follow these steps and in a jiffy, your timeline will be freed of irrelevant posts.
1) Launch Google Chrome Browser on your PC or Mac
You should note that there is no shortcut which you can use on your mobile device or your Facebook app so you can only use a PC or Mac for this job.
2) Log-In to your Facebook Account
Having launched the Google Chrome Brower on your PC, the next thing to do is to log in to your Facebook account.
3) Use the appropriate Extension for Chrome
You would need an extension for Chrome which would make your work easier. the extension is called “Social Book Post Manager” if you do not have the extension, go ahead and download it, install it in Chrome or directly open the link in the browser you were using to clear your Facebook activity log.
4) Head to where your “Activity Log” option is
Furthermore, go to your Facebook profile, you will find the “View Activity Log” button, click on it. On the right-hand of the Facebook activity log, you will be given options to choose the activity you want to do away with and there you can start choosing the unwanted posts one after the other.
These posts include documents like videos and photos, posts uploaded by you and as well, the ones you were tagged in. Note that you are at liberty to hide those unwanted posts or delete them permanently.
5) Go ahead and delete the unwanted posts
If you want to remove everything, click on “Select All.” button. If you don’t want to delete everything, select the items you want to delete and choose the time frame you would be using; these could range from weeks to years.
Before deleting everything, you might want to save a copy of it, all you need to do is click on the gear at the top of the Facebook site and select Settings.
At the bottom of that page, there is a link to download your data. Facebook will assemble a package of everything you have posted, including photos and videos, and send you a link to a zip file. Now, you can keep a private copy of everything.
Deleting 30,000 things takes a long time. In the Activity Log, there’s a pencil icon next to each item. Clicking that shows a menu of options. Some items can be truly purged; the Delete option is in the menu itself.
Go ahead and keep your timeline all clean and free of unwanted posts.
