Facebook’s new Manage Activity tool allows you to view all of the posts you’ve made on the social network, and then archive or delete posts so that other users can no longer view them. When you archive a post, it will go to a special “Archive” section of your Facebook Activity Log. This allows you to view the posts you’ve archived, even though no one else can.

Our guide will show you how to view all of the Facebook posts you’ve archived.

Step 1: Tap the three horizontal lines in the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Step 2: Scroll down and tap “Settings & Privacy.”

Step 3: Tap “Settings.”

Step 4: Scroll down to the “Your Facebook Information” section and tap “Activity Log.”

Step 5: Tap “Archive” at the top of the screen.

You will now see a timeline of all of the posts you’ve archived. If you want to view posts from a specific date or time period, tap “Filters” at the top of the screen. If you want to restore a post so that other users can once again see it, tap the box to the left of the post, and then tap the Restore button in the bottom-left corner of the screen.
