While using Facebook, you may experience harassment through comments or direct messages. When this occurs, Facebook has made it simple to block someone in order to avoid contact with them. It’s difficult to remember who you’ve blocked on Facebook. You are, however, in luck since there is a way to access all of the accounts you’ve blocked on Facebook. This article describes what happens when you block a Facebook profile and how to block someone on Facebook. Following that, we’ll go through how to check your Facebook block list and how to unblock a Facebook profile.
What Happens When You Block a Facebook Profile?
There are millions of Facebook users, and you will meet new people every day. It might be people who leave comments on your Facebook posts or those that message you in your inbox. In any situation, you can brush shoulders with someone and then cut off the contact by blocking them. When you block someone, you are denying them the chance to do a number of tasks.
- The blocked profile will not be able to see your posts on your timeline.
- You cannot be invited to groups or events by the blocked profile.
- Someone you’ve blocked will not be able to tag you in images, comments, or posts.
- They are unable to message you or add you as a Facebook friend.
The above are some of the effects of blocking someone on Facebook. If that’s what you want, go ahead and block the Facebook profile.
