We live in the sprawling landscape of social media apps like Facebook! Each like on our photos leaves a trace, and every reaction solidifies our online persona! But are likes and reactions the platform’s only metrics? Don’t you long for private moments?
Imagine posting a personal photo and baring your soul in captions, only to discover that the flood of Facebook friends’ likes eclipses the entire existence of your post. We would do whatever in our power to avoid likes when they plague our online lives.
Well, dear readers and devoted Facebook users, that is why we are here! In this blog, we’ll show you how to delete someone’s like on Facebook photo. So, let’s start right now!
How to Remove Someone’s Like on Facebook Photo
Unexpectedly, Facebook doesn’t have the option to delete someone’s likes on your photos. But don’t worry, that will not be all, at least not under our supervision! You must adhere to the workarounds below if you want to erase someone’s likes.
Method 1: Change your post settings to Only Me
Remember, the method will be most effective if you use it before sharing the photo or, at the very least, as soon as you post them. This approach will not be effective if someone already likes the pictures.
Steps to change post settings to Only Me:
Step 1: Scroll the target post on your Facebook profile page.
Step 2: Can you make out the three horizontal dots at the top of the post next to your name? Kindly tap it.
Step 3: Select the Edit post option.
Step 4: Select the Audience option under your display name on the next page.
Step 5: You’ll land on the Who can see your post page with four main options: Public, Friends, Friends Except, and Only Me.
Select Only Me.
Method 2: Delete and repost the Facebook photo
Most of us regret not changing our post settings and getting someone’s likes on our photos. But hey, there’s nothing to worry about then too!
If you didn’t change the privacy settings to Only Me, you can always delete the image and quickly re-upload it. Remember, items in the recycle bin are automatically deleted after 30 days.
Steps to delete a Facebook photo:
Step 1: Choose the photo you want to delete from your profile page.
Step 2: Select the trash symbol by tapping the three dots in the upper right corner.
Step 3: A confirmation pop-up will appear next. It reads: Move to your recycle bin? Tap Move to complete the action.
How to remove your likes from someone’s Facebook photo?
We’ve already established that you can’t take someone else’s Facebook likes away from your photos, but what about the other way around? Is it possible to take your likes off of their photos?
Facebook appears to have given us the go-ahead in this instance! So, let’s talk about this in greater depth right away. We’ll talk about removing our reactions and likes from someone’s images using our PC and smartphone apps.
From the official mobile app
Step 1: Log in to your Facebook account and find the hamburger icon at the top right corner. Click on it.
Step 2: You will be directed to your Facebook menu. Tap on your name next.
Step 3: Three horizontal dot icons are at the right corner next to the Edit profile option. Please click it.
