Facebook has become an integral part of everyone’s lives due to the phenomenon called social networking. One can argue that the biggest thing to happen to social media and social networking is Facebook, and they would be right. Whats more is that the company has cemented its feet into the social scene further after the recent acquisitions of Instagram and WhatsApp, making it also one of the most rounded out platforms on the internet and a content creator’s paradise.
Facebook was created to give people a safe haven to express their thoughts and ideas. There are some people however, who befriend you and then indulge in some not so positive activities. This is called harassment and the fist step to stopping this trouble is to block the contact responsible.
Over time, if you feel that the user you had previously blocked has turned over a new leaf, Facebook gives you the power to unblock the contact and allows communication between you again.
In this tutorial, we will show you how to unblock a user on Facebook.
Step 1. Open the web browser on your PC/Laptop.
Step 2. In the URL bar, type in www.facebook.com.
Step 3. Sign in to your Facebook account.
Step 4. Tap on the little triangle icon on the top right hand side of the Facebook Home page.
Step 5. From the drop down menu, click on the ‘Settings‘ button.
Step 6. In the left pane, click on the ‘Blocking‘ tab.
Step 7. In the right hand side window, you will see a list of names of the users who you have blocked.
Step 8. Click on the ‘Unblock‘ button next to the name of the user.
Step 9. On the confirmation screen, click on the ‘confirm‘ button.
This will unblock the user on your Facebook. Keep in mind that unblocking the user will reinstate all the permissions he/she earlier had, which includes seeing your posts, stories, interacting with your content, etc.
Make sure you have thought in depth before deciding to unblock a user on Facebook.
