I am not looking at my analytics right now but I am fairly certain that my most popular blog posts are the ones about blocking people on Facebook. This is clearly a hot-button issue and I have read all of your questions. I wrote the posts about a year ago and I still receive a few questions per day about online blocking. Thank you so much for your interaction and for reaching out to me for guidance.
I have read all of your questions and I consistently do my best to get back to you. I am hearing you and I understand that there is a need for a more comprehensive guide to what happens when you are blocked or when you block someone. A lot of your questions are very specific and, unfortunately, the answers to them change. Since I wrote the series of articles about blocking, Facebook has updated its privacy settings many times and some of the original glitches that were involved with blocking are no longer issues. Of course, new concerns have replaced the old ones.
As I said in one of my posts, I am not a fan of blocking. In most cases, I do not believe that blocking is appropriate and since I wrote the articles, I have not blocked a single person on Facebook. I have chosen to reserve the feature for perceived danger, which I am (Knock on wood.) lucky to currently not have in my life. Should a threatening or harassing issue arise, I would not hesitate to block someone but it is not something that I would do with happiness and it is not something that I would care to do frequently.
With that said, I am going to do some investigative research for all of you because I want to answer your questions as correctly and as completely as I can. I am going to go “under cover” and play around with tagging, blocking, and image removing. I will tackle the items that you want to know.
I already have dozens of questions about blocking people on Facebook but if you would like to add more to my list, go ahead and ask me in the comment section below. I will write another blog post reporting back with as much information as I can. What questions do you have about blocking people on Facebook?
