How to Unblock Someone on Facebook

If you are thinking about unblocking someone on Facebook, you should first know what will happen.

They will be able to:

  • See anything you post on your timeline.
  • Tag you in posts, comments, or photos.
  • Invite you to any events or groups.
  • Start a conversation with you.
  • Add you as a friend.

Also, keep these points in mind:

  • You cannot unblock that particular person again before 48 hours.
  • You won’t automatically become friends again; you’ll have to send them a friend request.
