Facebook blocking is a feature that lets Facebook ban people from your "friends list." When you block people on Facebook, they will longer be able to access your Facebook profile. Block Facebook users. See: My Blocked List On Facebook

Facebook recommends you block people who you longer want to befriend on the site. However, one thing that is worthy of note is the fact that blocking on Facebook is a two-way thing.

It's a two-way thing in the sense that, when you block someone from accessing your profile, Facebook also unfriend or block you from seeing stuff the person is sharing too.  

Here're the things blocked Facebook users won't be able to be doing on your profile;
1. See things you post on your profile

2. Tag you in posts, comments or photos

3. Invite you to events or groups

4. Start a conversation with you

5. Add you as a friend

Additionally, according to the Facebook Help Center, when you block someone on Facebook, you also won't be able to do things like start a conversation with them or add them as a friend.

Note that blocking someone may not prevent all communications or interactions (example: in apps or groups) and only affects your interactions with that person on Facebook.

Having said all of the above, if you still wish to block someone Facebook, follow the helpful tips below;
