Hi Ellebj, I believe you cannot know if your friend has blocked you. Because its Facebook which maintains some privacy and when someone block us, it will not alert or make the person know that they are blocked.

I also think most probably it might not be possible to see the person who block us in facebook.

Hi. ellebj. You will know if she has blocked you because you won't be able to search for her in the search results at all. You also won't be able to see her on your friends list at all. These are a few signs that she may have blocked you or simply have deactivated her account on Facebook. I am sorry that she has blocked you in Facebook. That is wrong that she has done this.

ah i see,that thing is the thing that i don't know,because no notification will appear in your account that you are blocked in the Facebook of other people,so i may never know or no one will never know that you are unblock to their account.

Hi elle, why do you think your friend blocked you on Facebook? Anyways, I don't think you'll be able to know if you've been blocked. If you have a common friend, ask him or her if your other friend's FB is still active, might be she decided to delete her account or deactivate it that's why you can't see it for the mean time.

Maybe she still hasn't accepted your friend request OR she changed the settings on her wall. You have the options to hide your Wall in Facebook and there are other accounts that displays updates in your news feed even though they still haven't accepted your friend request. Anyways, the fact that you can still see her account means that she didn't blocked you. Because if you are blocked, you will not able to see the account no matter how hard you search for it. :) Don't worry. :)

I'm not sure but I think you'll be notified, something like You've been blocked by this user or something if you message them. Try sending her a message.

Maybe you're not blocked at all, maybe she just doesn't wanna reply or hasn't logged in yet since you've sent your message.

I have two accounts, I tried to block my other account just for curiosity. When I tried to search my first account, I can no longer find it in the search result. When I try to post, I can no longer see that post on my blocked account. Probably when you blocked an account, you will no longer have a connection with that user.

oh it doesn't mean that your friend did not block you. When you are blocked by a friend, what you can see in your profile is just like what a stranger can see. That is, you can only see the information that she has set to be publicly viewable. So may be strangers are also allowed to view her profile. But well, there is still chance that your friend did not actually block you but has made her wall private for some reasons, like she is busy dealing with stuffs, exams, or else , and do not want to spend time responding to the comments on her facebook wall. That means other friends of her may also not be able to view her wall. What you can do is, do you guys have common facebook friends? Ask those friends to help and check if your new friend's wall is viewable to others, but not you. And recently do you still get the news of your new friend through facebook news feed? If not, then you are probably blocked by her. Good Luck...

I am not familiar about the blocking of facebook. I think most probably there might be some ignore button in it. I hope others who reply to the discussion might be able to help you with their suggestion.
