Posting here for traffic...

Yes I know it's childish, I shouldn't give a toss etc, but can anyone help me work out if I've been blocked on FB please?

Person in question has vanished from friends list. They still show up on search bar, but if I click to access profile it comes up as not available. They are still on my messenger, which shows they've been active today?confused

My first thought was that they'd deactivated profile, but now I'm wondering if I've been blocked!

Any thoughts from the more technically minded out there?

Yep you have been blocked

NervousNellie29 Sat 15-Apr-17 16:40:42

Sounds like it. Sorry OP sad
Did something happen or is it just out of the blue?

Sounds like the account may be deactivated, at least temporarily. If they had blocked you their profile would not show on a search.

What is more likely - that they have deactivated their profile or that you had been blocked?

didodogs Sat 15-Apr-17 16:43:19

It only shows on search bar though? If I click I can't open profile.

It's my future MIL! Ouchshock

It could be either with that woman sonjadog

LouKout Sat 15-Apr-17 16:44:00

She might have deactivated her account

sonjadog Sat 15-Apr-17 16:45:04

In that case, do you have a mutual friend you could ask to check it that you trust not to blab?

didodogs Sat 15-Apr-17 16:45:13

Can you deactivate account and stay on messenger though? I didn't think you could.

Hidingtonothing Sat 15-Apr-17 16:45:18

I've just checked what happens when I search someone I know I've blocked (on the app) and their profile doesn't come up at all, not even in search bar.

OnionKnight Sat 15-Apr-17 16:45:45

It sounds like the account has been deactivated, otherwise she wouldn't appear in the search results.

KateDaniels2 Sat 15-Apr-17 16:46:15

You can deactivate and stay on messenger. My friend did it a few weeks ago.

NervousNellie29 Sat 15-Apr-17 16:46:25

If someone blocks you they do still come up in a search. My OH is very childish and blocks me on Facebook if we have a big enough argument. Always comes up in search but when I click his name it says the page is unavailable or can't be found.
When you block someone they disappear completely.

Gwencooper81 Sat 15-Apr-17 16:46:54

I think fb and messenger are separate though so you could still be on messenger even if not on fb?

didodogs Sat 15-Apr-17 16:47:50

Perhaps it's just deactivated then? I'll ask a friend to check later.

Not that it makes it much better as I know it's all to prove a point to DP and I! So childishconfused

DaisyQueen Sat 15-Apr-17 16:48:00

You have been blocked I'm afraid. You can deactivate facebook and still have messenger because dp has this however his profile doe not appear if I search for him on facebook.

MixedUpConfusion Sat 15-Apr-17 16:48:05

You can deactivate your profile but still keep messenger, if you were blocked they wouldn't show on your messenger

PunjanaTea Sat 15-Apr-17 16:48:21

I think they've deactivated their account. My friend said she could still see my profile like this when I deactivated a while back.

OnionKnight Sat 15-Apr-17 16:48:53

I know someone who has blocked me and when I search for them they don't appear in the search results at all...

didodogs Sat 15-Apr-17 16:49:08

God NervousNellie is your DHL related to my future MIL by any chance?grin

NervousNellie29 Sat 15-Apr-17 16:50:03

@didodogs I hope not. They'd probably conspire together for other PA things they could do confused

didodogs Sat 15-Apr-17 16:50:15

Seems like it's 50/50 opinion wise.

Should I message her and ask?grin

didodogs Sat 15-Apr-17 16:51:39

Haha NervousNellie FB is the passive aggressives best friend.

JustSpeakSense Sat 15-Apr-17 16:51:48

If someone has blocked you, they will not be visible to you in any way.

If they have temporarily deactivated their account you will still be able to see their account but not view it anymore.

I don't think you've been blocked
