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.
To unhide a post on your Facebook Page, that you've hidden, you can go through the following process;
*icon will appear as a pencil sign, if you are trying to unhide your own post and as a hollow circle with a diagonal line (like an oblique/slash sign) passing through it, if you are trying to unhide other’s post published / tagged to your page’s timeline.

Also, if the post you had hidden was having an image that was uploaded from an external source and saved in your photo album, that image will continue to remain visible in your photo album, unless you delete that image from there.
To hide a post from your Facebook Page, you can go through the following process;
If you are still facing issues with the visibility of your posts, you can reach out Facebook's help center for further resolution of the problem.

To reach ‘Help & Support’, navigate to the downward arrow button located at the top-right corner of the Facebook page. Once you click on the button, a drop down menu will open, where you’ll find ‘Settings’ option among others.
Click on ‘Settings’ and you’ll be redirected to a new page.
Scroll down below on menu list on left side of the page to find ‘Support Inbox’ at the bottom on the menu list.
If you are using Facebook App, tap on the menu button, located on the top right corner of the screen (it should appear like three horizontal lines). This will open the menu page. Now scroll down and you’ll find ‘Help & Support’ option, which will contain links to ‘Help Center’ and ‘Support Inbox’.
