In this post, we will show you how to block someone on Facebook permanently. You can also unblock any person on Facebook with this step-by-step guide.
Facebook is one of the biggest social networking sites where people meet with strangers to become friends. However, sometimes it gets wrong, and people end up being bored or harassed. If something like that is happening to you, or someone is sending you threatening messages or any other spam messages, it is better to block him/her immediately. Just like you can block Facebook game requests, you can block persons, too.

- Add you as a friend. He/she won’t be able to send a friend request to you.
- Send a message to you.
- Tag you in any photo, post, video, etc.
- Invite you to like pages or join groups.
If you are okay with these points, go ahead and follow this guide.
