How to see hidden Post on Facebook Page?

If you are an individual or a business entity that has a Facebook Page that you use to market products or services, there will be situations when sometimes you may have to hide a Facebook Page post temporarily.

Facebook has a convenient and easy way to hide and unhide your posts. When a post is hidden, people visiting your page will not be able to see that post in your Page’s timeline.

Once you have decided on which post you want to hide or unhide from your Facebook Page, you can begin with the process, by following the steps as described below.
