Time to be tough.
It's time to embark on the on the ultimate in Facebook privacy...the Facebook block.
This is not for the person you simply think is a little loud, nor the person you wish would quit posting about what they had for lunch. This is big time. The block makes a person virtually invisible on Facebook, and also makes you invisible to him or her too.
When you opt to block, all of the following happen right away. People you block can no longer:
- Click the Settings (gear) icon in the upper-right corner of Facebook.
- In the drop-down, click Privacy Settings.
- In the left column, click Blocking.
- In the Block Users section (typically the second section), type the Facebook name of the person you wish to block. You can also opt to type an e-mail in this section as well, which can allow you do to a pre-emptive block, assuming the person uses that e-mail in connection with Facebook.
