How Do I Re-Block Someone on Facebook?

When you block a user on Facebook, he cannot find you in searches or see any of your activity on the site--you become invisible to him, and he becomes invisible to you. Blocking is reversible, and once a user is unblocked, you can immediately see each other again. After you unblock a Facebook user, the site requires you to wait 48 hours before adding him back to your list of blocked users.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Go to the "Account" link in the top-right corner of your Facebook screen and choose "Privacy Settings."

  2. 2

    Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the "Edit Your Lists" link in the "Block Lists" section.

  3. 3

    Enter the name or e-mail address of the user you want to block in the "Block Users" fields and click the blue "Block" button. Facebook will search for a list of users that match your entry. Click "Block" next to the correct user.

Tips and warnings

  • If you cannot find the correct user in the "Block List" search, go to the user's profile and click the "Report/Block This User" link in the left column of the screen.
