What happens when I “Block People” on Facebook?

Blocking users on Facebook is much more advanced than “ignore user” option of Orkut. If you block someone on Facebook he/she won’t be able to,

  • See your profile on Facebook search results.
  • Either open your profile, if the ignored person is having a bookmark of your profile, that will be automatically re-directed to his/her homepage.
  • Send pokes/message or any friend request in future.
  • See your comments in public pages.
  • See you in anybody’s friends list.

Obviously that’s a very good feature and important too in order to make Facebook clean.

Blocked person is sending me messages using fake profiles, what should I do?

Well in that case simple make your profile invisible, that means only you will be able to see other Facebook profiles and nobody can access your profile. Read “Set Your Profile Search Visibility on Facebookfor more information related to it.

So make facebook beautiful with “Block People” option and make Facebook better with FacebooKnol. πŸ˜‰
