It is really easy to bring back that post. When you're still in your profile and not going on any page yet. You can still see this "This post is now hidden from your timeline. Undo" you just need to hit the undo button and it will be back in your timeline. But what if you already navigate on some other pages. In this case you will not have an option to undo the hidden post. You just need to follow the instructions below to put back the hidden post in your timeline:

I'm trying to undo a post that I accidentally hid. Don't know what I tapped for that to happen. I would like to reverse this since it is an invitation to a baby shower?

I followed directions which said to go to my activity log and to the left of "activity log" there would be a "post...." to tap. There is no such thing on my Apple phone! How do I proceed from here.

There is no unhide option for a specific post on my timeline I am trying to unhide. Can you help?

Hi, I changed my profile photo and when you do that it automatically shows up as a post on my timeline. At first I did not want this, I just simply wanted to change my profile pic, so I hid it from timeline. Now, I'd like to unhide it. I went to Settings & Privacy, then to Activity Log, then to Photo Review, then Hidden fromTimeline. It then shows me the posts that I've hidden from timeline, including the one I am trying to unhide, but when I click on it there is NO option to unhide it. This is so frustrating. There is no circle with a line through it, nothing. It tells me it's hidden, but no option otherwise. How the heck do I unhide this sucker? Thank you, Jeanne Young. I read everything, nothing talks about this and what the solution is. How come Facebook is not showing me the unhide option fora particular activity post?
