Before you block a profile
Keep in mind that when you block a profile that's messaging you on Marketplace, you are blocking that profile on Facebook. When you block a profile on Facebook:
  • You can't see each other's listings on Marketplace.
  • You can't send each other any new messages.
  • You and the profile you block can still see any messages sent before you blocked them.
  • Buyers and sellers will still be able to see ratings and reviews, even from profiles that they've blocked.
Block someone's profile
When you block someone's profile on Facebook, that profile will no longer be able to do things such as tag your profile or see things you post on your profile.
If you have additional Facebook profiles, you’ll need to manage blocking from each of your profiles separately.
Block a profile
  1. Switch to the profile that you want to use.
  2. Click your profile picture in the top right of Facebook.
  3. Select Settings & privacy, then click Settings.
  4. Click Blocking in the left menu.
  5. In the Block users section, enter the name of the profile you want to block, then click Block.
  6. Select the specific profile you want to block from the list that appears and click Block, then Block [profile name].
If you can't find a profile using this method, try going to the profile you’d like to block and then selecting Block from the more menu in the bottom right of the cover photo.
Keep in mind
  • When you unblock a profile, you won't automatically be friends again. If you block a profile and then unblock it, you'll need to send that profile a new friend request.
  • Profiles won't be notified when you block them.
Unblock a profile
When you unblock a profile, that profile will be able to see your posts on Facebook that you share with the public. The profile won't automatically become your friend on Facebook. If you want to become friends with a profile you've unblocked, you'll need to send a friend request to that profile.
Note: If you unblock a profile, you won't be able to block it again for a few days.
Unblock someone on Facebook
  1. Click your profile picture in the top right of Facebook.

  3. In the left column of your Settings, click Blocking.
  4. In the Block Users section you should see a list of profiles you've blocked.
  5. Click Unblock next to the profile you want to unblock.
  6. Click Confirm to finish unblocking the profile.
