Do you have someone on your Facebook friend list that you no longer want to see or interact with on the platform? The solution is to block them. Facebook has made it very easy to block someone on the app, and in this guide, we will show you how to do it.

Firstly, open up the Facebook app and tap on the search icon located in the top right corner of the homepage. Then search for the person you would like to block and tap on their name to open their profile.

On their profile, look for the three dots button to the right of either the ‘friends’ or ‘add friend’ button, and tap on it. From the options that pop up, select ‘block’ and tap ‘block’ again on the popup to confirm.

If you would like to see a list of everyone that you have blocked, tap on the search icon located in the top right corner on the homepage and search for ‘block.’ Tap on the ‘Settings: Blocking’ Facebook shortcut to access the list.

From here, you can view who you have blocked and block more people by tapping ‘add to block list’ and searching for the person you wish to block. To unblock someone, tap on ‘unblock’ to the right of their name and then tap unblock again on the popup. Note that you will have to wait 48 hours before you can block them again.

If you are friends with the person you are blocking, then blocking them will also unfriend them. Alternatively, you have the option to take a break from the person instead of blocking them. This will mean that you see less of their posts, and they see less of yours.

In conclusion, blocking someone on Facebook is a straightforward process that can be completed in just a few steps. By following the steps outlined in this guide, you can easily block someone on the Facebook app and take control of your Facebook experience.
