If you need a bit more control over what other users post onto your Facebook page, but don’t want to stop people posting altogether, then you may have wished for a way to put all new posts into a moderation queue. Fortunately a few tweaks to your FB permissions and you should have ultimate control on what appears on your Wall.
This is very easy, and probably a very obvious trick, but it’s new to me so I thought I’d share it.
First, log into your FB page as an administrator, open the Admin Panel and click on the ‘edit page’ button. Select ‘manage permissions’ from the drop-down list. This takes you to the permissions page – and what you need to do is change the default setting for things other people post onto your Wall from ‘visible’ to ‘hidden’.
Now when you want to moderate your page, just click on the option within the Admin Panel to open the ‘activity log’. All new posts will be listed, and each one will display a crossed circle symbol to show that it is hidden from the page.
