I have got 2 questions about facebook's privacy.

If I blocked someone, if he/she had clicked "Like" on my facebook, his/her "like" will disappear, right?

How can I not allow other to see the list of people who clicked "Like" on my photo? They can see total number of like but not the list of people.

Hope someone can help!

Hey, we are happy to help you.
But the requirement of you is out of frame and I don't think there is some way to do it.
Because you are demanding to edit the functionality of the "like" control made by facebook.
Hope, this will clear your path to check the alternatives.

IF you block a person from your facebook they will not even be able to click like becasue they can not see your facebook page.

You can test this by creating yourself a another facebook account for testing then block that account. Then on that account try to access your personal account and you weill see you will not be able to see your personal account at all.

You can even stop them from seeing other parts too but blocking them is the best to keep them out.

For the first question I 'think' that Facebook would still record that they liked the link however they won't list that person in your likes list. After all, it's a statistic and Facebook love statistics....however on this specific issue I could be wrong, try posting a question on http://facebook.stackoverflow.com/ which is maintained but a large FB support staff along with other users such as here at EE...and as it's a policy question I'm sure it's best to get responses from FB directly...or someone with intimate knowledge on the ever changing T's & C's.

The second question would require you to set your privacy settings to Friends only, and when you post an image just say that only friends can see it. However, as it's a sitewide feature it's not something you can just turn off...so using the privacy settings to the most restrictive will ensure that your picture, and it's like statistics won't even show up for someone who's not on your list.
