If you’re on Facebook and are irritated by someone in your friend list or comments on your posts, the block option provided by Meta is a life-saver exactly for such situations. If you don’t already know about it, let us explain how it works. When you block a person, they are not able to see your posts on your profile, tag you in any post, comment or photo, invite you to events or groups, start a conversation with you or even add you as a friend in case you aren’t already. One thing to consider here is that once you block someone, Facebook also unfriends you with them. So, in case you don’t want to unfriend someone but just want to see less of their posts, Facebook instead now lets you take a break from them. But if you still want to totally block a person, below are mentioned the steps with pictorial representation on how to block or unblock someone on Facebook. These steps are valid both for the app version and for the browser version of Facebook.
Steps to Block Someone on Facebook
Step 1: Open the Facebook application and open the profile of the person you want to block via typing their name in the search box. Click on the Profile Settings icon (3 dots) in their profile, as highlighted below.
Step 2: Click on the Block option.
Step 3: Select Block, and that’s it! The person will get blocked from seeing your posts, tagging you, etc. on your profile.
Steps to Unblock Someone on Facebook
Step 1: Open the Facebook app and click on the hamburger menu on the top right corner of the interface, as highlighted below. Then click on the Settings icon.
Step 2: Click on the Blocking option.
Step 3: Click Unblock against the profile that you want to unblock.
Step 4: Click on Unblock again, as highlighted below, and the person will finally get unblocked from interacting with you on Facebook.
It is therefore very easy to block and unblock someone on Facebook. Moreover, it is an excellent option from the perspective of the security of your online presence. You can choose to limit a person’s interaction with you via the take a break option, or you can choose to totally block them instead and carry on with your social life without any tension.
