Blocking People in Facebook is abused by many users as the blocked user never knows that another user has blocked but that user can actually see your posts. It is among Facebook’s Policy, clearly written “Blocking someone is completely confidential, and the person will not be notified that he or she has been blocked.” and officially it is written “Blocking a user will prevent any type of direct interaction between you and that user. However, for technical reasons, there are certain instances when an individual you have blocked from your account may be able to view your comments on the site and vice versa, including comments on a mutual friend’s photo. Please be assured that your listing will appear in black text, with no profile picture visible or contact links available.”
If you read the writings there on that page of Blocking People in Facebook policy, it will be clear to you :
- It is certainly encourages a percent of users to block you and practically spy on you
Blocking People in Facebook and Security, Privacy
Facebook’s verification is not so strong like Google Plus, practically only with brute force any hacker can login to any one’s account. Google’s 2-step verification is very nice, it has SSL by default unlike Facebook (as far I can recall user needs to opt for SSL for Facebook). More over for each domain and Subdomain, Google has separate SSL certificates – to pass in Google plus (plus.google.com) you have to pass accounts.google.com with another SSL certificate. plus.google.com‘s SSL certificate is issued by Google themselves. Unlike Facebook. Our basic topic was Blocking People in Facebook, but these came as its a basic need to protect the password.
So, basically, if a person A blocks Me after being Facebook Friend, taken that I have accepted on right or false impression and as logically (it happened with me) if person A blocks me, I will never know but the person A can spy me. More interestingly, the person’s profile vanishes from your Friend List.
Blocking People in Facebook and Apps and other features
Google Plus has clean, modern, advanced way to mute posts and most importantly – reporting content properly. Again returning back to Blocking People in Facebook, if someone suspicious has blocked you (basically this feature is actually not for normal civilians in my opinion, a simple access control and un-friending will solve the spam problem, moreover if you have real life problem you can take help of the Law) and you need to trace the person. Facebook search frankly 10 years old, there is no robust search, that is not the way. Our way is to find person A who has some bad intention and started Blocking People in Facebook including me. Fool proof ways :
Situation A when the person has relatives
Go to the person who is the relative of the person, on left hand side there will (by default) be a list of his / her relatives. And your spy will be shown as non hyperlinked profile :
Its an real screen shot with Photoshop works to make the user pictures not recognizable, the person blocked you will show in that way, its clear I have changed the name to mine.
The avatar, due to Facebook’s flaw is showing the sex set by the user – note that it is of a female, it was so in real. Open the page’s Source code on your browser, search the source code with the name – you will get the Facebook user ID and username. Simple. I can not show it as it will reveal real peoples data!
ID will be a number. Now read our article on Find Your Facebook Fan Page ID and Facebook Profile ID Easily. We needed that vanity name or ID. If its vanity name, take it it is doctorabhishek (mine).

When the person is fully unknown and Blocking People in Facebook
Tougher, but possible ways are :

What to do after discovering these Blocking People in Facebook doing a spy work
These data are somewhat helpful for reporting to Cyber Crime department in your Country. Facebook is unlikely to give details sometimes even there is official order.
Our Advice for using Facebook
Facebook, by coding is not very safe, they will not change their platform for sure. Do not use any third party apps, games etc. Selectively hide your data to be publicly shown, these will give you some security from generalized hacks, exploits. Do not accept friendship requests from never known persons. You will forget the name and if he/she blocks you, its impossible to find. In case you are in too much trouble, close the account and reopen a new.
