Something you may want to know

In Facebook you can block someone whoever is your Facebook friend or not. If someone is spamming you, you can block him/her easily with just a few steps. If you block someone, s/he will no longer be able to:

  • see your posts,
  • tag you,
  • invite you to events or groups
  • message you
  • add you as a friend
  • If you’re already friends in Facebook, blocking someone will unfriend him/her.

Facebook supports blocking and unblocking. So if you unblock people, that person may be able to see your Timeline or contact you depending on your settings.
