Facebook offers users the opportunity to make as many friends as possible. The worthiness of a user’s status is to an extent judged by the number of friends they have. It does not take so much to add friends. All users need to do is search for a particular friend or browse through the friends Facebook usually suggests to users.
In as much as it is really nice and fulfilling to see old friends and add them or add friends that are really new, there are some instances where users will rather not have some users on their friend’s list. This brings about the need to block Facebook friends. For the sake of one’s sanity and peace of mind, while using Facebook.
It is best when users know the kind of friends they are willing to add to their friend’s list. Some people that had been added to user’s friend’s list had become a source of pain rather than a source of joy and enjoyment. For such friends, it is wise to caution them for a while, and if there is no visible change effected, then they could be blocked.
Reasons to Block Facebook Friends.
Thee are several reasons why users will want to block Facebook friends. Some of these reasons are personal reasons while others are security reasons. Whatever the reasons might be. Every Facebook user has the right not only to add friends to their friend’s list but also the right to either remove them entirely or block them for a while. Some of the reasons why users block Facebook friends are listed below:
- When friends post abusive content to their wall.
