I have blocked a group of people from being able to view my Facebook profile. However a sibling is still Facebook friends as are a couple of other family members. If said sibling/family member were to like or comment on something I posted, presumably I'm right in thinking the blocked people definitely cannot see it?

If you block someone they can't see anything of yours, not even that you have a profile.

No they can't, can't see anything, if they were to search for you on Facebook you wouldn't come up x

Thanks that's really helpful, makes me a bit paranoid because I know it pops up on news feeds if we just weren't Facebook friends but good to know it won't happen when blocked! Thanks again grin

Bit if your sister was to write a post about you and tag you in it your name will come up just not in bold. It will be your full name too so it's obvious it's a tag x

@user14809fhfdgg thank you, yeah that's not too much of an issue and I'm not concerned about them finding out they're blocked as I'm sure they're well aware. I just want to make sure certain people don't find out details of my baby when I have it later this year. I've asked others don't post online without permission but I keep my friends list small and intimate so I want to make sure when we announce it as we intend to that I can do so without those people being able to view it.

If you post or add a pic check that there isn't the world icon on your post. X

Do you have to be friends first to be able to block someone ?

@kingjofferyworksintescos nah managed to search them all by name and block, fortunately!

@user14809fhfdgg thanks for all your help!

That's actually not true anymore. For example, I blocked someone and I can still see their comment but when clicking on their name it says something like 'page cannot be found'
