How to delete Post on Reddit
I’m so frustrated that I can’t figure out how to delete a Reddit post. Reddit, for those of you who don’t know it, is a huge social media site that’s primarily used as an online bulletin board where people with common interests create posts and comment on other posts. Reddit has much of the same functionality as Facebook or Twitter, but being online its primary use is communications between Reddit members from all over the world.
You might like Reddit if:
– You are interested in sharing interesting links and photos, serious or not-so-serious discussions on topics ranging from silly to intellectual to controversial. – You enjoy participating in interactive crowdsourced projects like Wikipedia and mapping local businesses (all on Reddit). – You want join Reddit meetups held monthly in most major cities (including a Reddit Meetup taking place near you). If you want to delete Reddit posts, I’m sorry to say Reddit makes this incredibly difficult. Reddit doesn’t make it obvious how to do anything, and deleting Reddit posts is no exception. Reddit supports an all-or-nothing approach where once something has been posted on the site, it can never be deleted (even if it contained illegal material or personal information of the poster’s wife)! Reddit is so sure of this, Reddit has a page on their help site describing how Reddit handle requests to delete Reddit posts. Reddit says that it allows the poster to modify or remove Reddit comments and messages as he wishes; however, Reddit does not allow Reddit post authors to delete Reddit posts once they’ve been posted. The only reason I know about how to do this is because my comment was deleted from a thread, but no one would tell me why (even when I asked). With all the forms of social media available today, there’s good reason for new users not to adopt Reddit. They might get frustrated like me and go somewhere else!
If you hide a post in your account, it instead becomes part of your ‘Hidden’ folder and won’t appear anymore on your News Feed or be visible to anyone unless they search for that specific post. To continue hiding the advert, some more steps must be done such as deleting it.
You can’t delete posts from your Timeline that are already seen by others. If you want to delete a post, make sure no one’s spotted it yet.
If you don’t know how to undo the post, you can always set up bulk
deletion: go to the Edit Post page for the post and uncheck all of the boxes under “Delete Selected Posts.”
Although you cannot delete posts made by other people, you can choose to hide these posts and they will not appear in your Facebook feed.
When you delete a post, the karma it gave you is unaffected.
