Unfriending or blocking a person which you no longer what to interact with is very simple on Facebook. Luckily it is also easy to unblock and request to add them. This article will show you how to get started.
How To Unfriend People on Facebook
First search for their profile. Move the cursor along the button that says Friends
and select Unfriend
. This will remove that profile from your friends list. If later on you decide you want to add this person back, you will have to add that person once again by sending a friend request.
If the contact was blocked, when you go about adding them again, you won't be able to find them. Continue reading to find out how to unblock Facebook profiles.
Unblock Someone on Facebook
If you can’t find your contact using the search feature, it's most likely that you blocked them instead of unfriending them. In this case, all you have to do is unblock them and send a new friend request. Access your personal Facebook, then click the down arrow
in the top left corner, and select Settings
Next, in the left column click Blocking
In the section Block users
, select Unblock
, which appears next to the user's name you would like to unblock:
A pop-up window will appear. Click Confirm
Next, search the name of the user you would like to add in the search bar on top and click on their profile. Lastly, send a new friend request by clicking Add Friend
. If you can’t easily find the person you would like to add as a friend from the Facebook search bar, you can look for a picture where that person has been tagged on the profile of any other friend you have in common and send a new friend request that way.
