How to unhide a Facebook post?


There have been times when we have found an old embarrassing picture that we had posted of ourselves long time back on Facebook and we don’t want anyone to see that. But we are also nostalgic about it and don’t want to delete, so in this case, Facebook provides us with an interesting feature known as ‘Hide Post’.

You can prevent anyone from seeing that post but it does not get deleted and you can always view that whenever you like to. But what if you want that post back,i.e, you want to unhide that Facebook post.

  1. Why does it say that a post will have 45 likes but will only show 30 of them and say 15 loved with it but only show 10. Or on someone’s profile it will say I have 60 mutual friends bit only show 40 of them or 30 people commented but show only 15 or 20 of the comments
