Block on Facebook


On Facebook, I received a Friend Request from someone whom I never want to contact me, or know what I'm doing. I deleted the request, however, I want to block this person completely. I Googled how to do it, but did not find any helpful info.

How can I do so?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Facebook hides this.  Go to Facebook in a computer browser (not phone). look for the dark black icons on the blue header bar top right.  Go to the pull down arrow beside Quick Help and see Settings. Go to Settings.

Now click on Blocking and block the users you wish to block.

Found it. Thank you.
So, if this person sends me a Friend request again, will they see any indication that I've blocked them (e.g. "Add Friend" would be grayed out?) Or, will they not even be able to bring me up in a search?
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
They will see (may see) you "unfriended" them, but most people do not look. Such is Facebook.

You can still be searched, just not accessed. You cannot be anonymous (at least I don't think so).

But you have blocked the person, so you will not be bothered.

Thanks. This issue all started b/c I accidentally set a very personal post to PUBLIC. Lesson learned.
