How to block people/friends on Facebook?

facebook logoFacebook has been a good social network for people, and it is good when you have people who become your friends or already are your friends. It feels annoying when you have people asking for friend requests or searching for you on social networks, and you don’t want them as your friends there.

Same is the case in Facebook where people search for people and add them as their friends, although the person who is being added does not want to accept the request, nor wants to be searched by them. For those, here is the way of how to Block people on Facebook

Go to your Facebook account home, and Click on Settings in the top right side. A drop-down appears and click on “Privacy Settings”.

facebook settings privacy

Then in the privacy page, you will see some privacy settings in the top and in the bottom there is a big box explaining you the advantages of blocking a person on facebook, and option to search for the person who you want to block.

When you search for a name, you see the results as below and then you can select the person you want to block, by just clicking on the option right to their name.

facebook people search

You will see the list of people blocked in the privacy settings page, in the same box where you searched for the people to block. You can remove them from there anytime to unblock.

Note: If you block someone, they will not be able to find you in a Facebook search, see your profile, or interact with you through Facebook channels (such as Wall posts, Poke, etc.). Any Facebook ties you currently have with a person you block will be broken (for example, friendship connections, Relationship Status, etc.). Note that blocking someone may not prevent all communications and interactions in third-party applications, and does not extend to elsewhere on the Internet.

  1. This is all very good, but do you pknow of a way to find out whos blocking you?

  3. You can go into the same spot described above (settings>privacy settings>search) and deselect the box that says “A link to add me as a friend”. But what I’m wondering is how I can make it so that the person can send a friend request that I must authorize, because I have weird people adding themselves as my friend…anyone know?

    I want to block people from seeing who my friends are if we do not have mutual friends. My sister in law, who is a psychopath and has never known any of my friends, found me on facebook and started contacting all of my friends to slander me. Because of this, I now have filed a harassment complaint in court and wish I had never set up a facebook account. this is costing me a lot of money to pursue. I thought I could connect with friends and have some privacy. Guess not. I know that it was possible to do what I’m asking. How do I do this now?

  34. Hello,

  35. To hide your list of friends from everyone who isn’t a FB developer, go to your Profile and click on the pencil icon above your list of friends. There is a drop down menu. Choose “Change Visibility Settings”, go to “See my friend list” and “customize” it to “only me” or put your sister in “Hide this from these people…”.

  36. dat boy is a big moron
    he is making me nagry
    i dnt want him in facebook he is making fake idz and sending me requests ufffffffffff

  37. I have tried to block someone by going to Privacy Settings, edit my block list, typing in a name, clicking Block This Person and nothing happened. What do I do now?

  38. Liz, I will assume you want that person out of your life in Facebook. Did you remove that person from your Friend’s list? You should be gone from theirs too if you did – and if you followed the directions about blocking correctly, they shouldn’t be able to find you and ask you to Friend them again (assuming they only search for you using the FB identity that you blocked). If that person is a stalker, and not just a PITA – they need to be reported.

  39. Just a comment. FB should have the same options for the Friends list as they do with other settings so we can select how public is is. It’s simple and effective. Maybe some people want to make hierarchies of friends, but most of us don’t need to divide up our Friends List into other lists of friends.

  40. Why not facebook create feature for auto block friends who block the friend, which can be choosen on privacy setting to on or off, because its annoyed me for block each person who block me, tq

  41. To remove someone from your Block List, take the following steps:
    Choose the “Privacy Settings” option in the Account drop-down menu at the top of any Facebook page.
    Select “Edit your lists” in the “Block Lists” section.
    Select “Remove” next to the individual’s name.
    Please note that this will not automatically add the person you remove to your friends list. Instead, you will need to search for them and send them a friend request if you wish to become friends.

  42. How to block those people who blocked me? I don’t want to do anything about them. They blocked me and they can unblocked me if they want to see my profile. But I don’t want them to see mine. It is just so unfair.

  43. few frnds r playing by using block serivices for dat face boook…blocked my account for 14 days…

  44. My ex is somehow able to see my inbox messages but only the fist message sent of that strand?? She doesn’t Have my password so how Is this possible?

  45. How does the friends that get shown apply? Is it who views my wall the most? Is there a way to never show certain friends?

  46. How do I find out if someone is blocking me on either facebook, email, or other crap. How do you tell if your being blocked, and how can I block all those idiots that keep emailing me about inheriting millions of dollars. Yes I know there all fake but at times I get twenty or more each day. I would like to block them.

    Secondly if you block or if I can block someone can I blork his computer from me. Know what I mean. it has somethign to do with peoples address on the computer I think. You can email me at stanleyhall@hotmail.com and tell me how to do it. guess we all or each computer has an IP address not sure what that means. Hell on facebook I have a gazallion friends I have never heard of so I deleted my account and started again, and of course again I have so many people Ihave never heard of.

    I guess you CAN’T teach a old dog new tricks.

    Cheers
