Facebook ?'s

Is there a way to "block" a specific individual from looking or seeing anything at your facebook page?


Is there a way to remove friends from your friends list and if so would they get a notification of this?


And can other people see what friends write if they are not friends with them?

You can make specific groups in Facebook...You can go under privacy setting and it gives you a list you can choose from.


Hubby has "defriended" people...they do not get a notification...that's my understanding.


I am not sure about your last question...I have wondered that myself.

Yes, it's in privacy settings. Click "settings" on the top bar. Then select privacy. There's a gray box at the bottom of that page and you can type in the name or e-mail of the person to block.

Just delete them - they don't get a notification. They will probably realize it at some point, but I wouldn't worry about it.

Yes,

AJ, enjoying life with C.

You can set your profile to private so that only people who are friends with you can see it. It is possible to remove someone as a friend without he or she knowing (I've had to do this recently) but as far as seeing what others wrote, I think you can but I don't know if you can block it. You might try Facebook's help center. They have answers to thousands of questions.

So I figured out how to delete a "friend" and that was actually very easy.

hmmm...if you couldn't find them when you tried to block then i guess it can mean they've already blocked you.

Kristie, you have no idea how glad I am that you posted this! I'm sorry to dig up an old thread, but today when I signed in to Facebook, one of my suggested friends was my ex-boyfriend! I don't know how he came up. I haven't had contact with him in over a year and don't want to have contact with him. He's no longer in my email address book or anything I have that could be connected to him. I wonder if he's been searching for me on Facebook. It doesn't matter because I was able to block him using the tips and tricks from this thread. Thank goodness for blocking!

From what I've read, if someone has blocked you, you can't find him or her. However, you might be able to block them if you know his or her name and location. I don't have any mutual friends who were friends with the ex-boyfriend, at least to my knowledge. I still think he's been searching for me because I'm sure word has reached him that I'm getting married. He's one to hold grudges and ill will towards people who he feels have done him wrong. That's just one reason I ended things with him.

If I find out how to block someone who has blocked you, I'll pass on the information. :-)
