Hello guys and welcome back to my blog again this morning we find ourselves in a bit of a conundrum. The topic before all this morning is one that has always been kind of bad and good on the Facebook platform. It suffices to say that Facebook is a place where you can be anything but, don’t make others feel uncomfortable. And that is the very same reason why Facebook block friend was put in place. All social media have this block feature, yeah anyone can block anyone that is a friend or followers on the platform.

Facebook Block Friend
The Facebook block friend is a feature, put in place by Facebook a user can decide to stop a friend on Facebook from viewing their profile, tagging them seeing their updates, any form of conversation with them even from adding them as a friend. So basically Facebook block friend is permanently taking a break from a friend forever. Anyone you block is blocked and therefore cannot interact with you anymore on the Facebook platform. This is put in place as a measure, to protect oneself from people who they do not want to be friends with anymore but keep on persisting to become friends and continue conversating.

When you Block Someone on Facebook what do They See?
Now we have a question before us. one might be skeptical about this if the person has not been blocked before. But talking from experience if you use facebook a lot you must have some experience with blocking. But we all know that if someone is denied access to something what does the person see? NOTHING.
If you block facebook block friend, what the person sees if the person has chatted with you before is a message that it will describe that the person cannot chat with you anymore. Once the person is blocked he can’t search for you on facebook, neither can he tag you in any post. what this means is that you are basically not in the same world anymore with the person. As there is no way the person can see you on facebook again. Well apart from the chat history, if the person has chatted with you before, but cannot continue chatting with you. This can also be described as permanently taking a break from the person.

The person, however, does, not have the power neither the way to unblock themselves anyway. that is because they do not control your account. Only you and you only can decide to unblock the person. And if you do not then the block is permanent. You can decide to access the Facebook block list however to unblock the person anytime you like. So if you do not want this option you can decide to take a break from the person. Which is actually a feature instead of blocking them which you can forget you blocked them.

Blocking some on messenger is not the same thing as blocking them on facebook. Because blocking them on messenger does not blocks them from the Facebook platform also. Well, even if the person is not on facebook. because the facebook messenger can be used even without a Facebook account.
Facebook Messenger is the messaging center, or simply put, its the place where facebook chat takes place. now this previously integrated together with the facebook app but has been split for some time now. and it is constantly evolving. You do not need to access the mobile app first before you can block someone. you can just do it from the messenger directly. let how Blocking someone on facebook messenger is done.
- Open your messenger app and then tap on the person you want to block.
- you can either scroll down and tap on the chat you have had with them before or, check if the person is online and tap on the person, or you tap the search box and search out the persons by name.
