If you’ve blocked someone and want to give them a second chance, you have to unblock them. Just follow these steps to do it:
- Open your Privacy Settings – the locker button in the top right corner of Facebook.
- Find ‘How do I stop someone from bothering me?’
- Click ‘View all blocked users’. This link is right below the text box used to search for people to block.
- Then click ‘Unblock’ next to the name of the person who you’ve blocked
- Now click ‘Confirm’.
Remember that after you unblock someone, you will not be able to re-block this person for 48 hours. If you want to be friends again, send another friend request – unblocking someone doesn’t automatically make this person your Facebook friend again.
You can also stay friends with someone on Facebook, but not see their posts. Just click on a post from them and in the upper right hand corner there’s a button. Click it and select ‘Unfollow XXX’. It will have ‘Stop seeing posts but stay friends’ written beneath it.
