When you unhide a post, the post becomes available on your timeline. Later, if you change your mind, you can re-hide the post and make it hidden again.

If you are using an iPhone, iPad, or Android phone, use the official Facebook app to make a post visible.

First, open the Facebook app on your phone. At the top right-hand corner of the app, tap the Menu icon (three horizontal lines). On some devices, the Menu icon may be in the lower right-hand corner. Refer to the below image:

Next, a Menu page will open. Scroll down this page, then tap Settings & Privacy. See the below image:

Facebook will now display all your hidden posts depending on the number of posts. If you have a large number of posts, you may get a server timeout message in trying to load your data. If you keep timing out, select the View Activity History button to locate a hidden post.

Now, to unhide one of these posts, tap the three dots next to the post. Refer to the below image:
