How to edit your blocked list on Facebook

Have you blocked someone by accident on Facebook, or blocked them on purpose but now want to remove the block? Follow these steps to access your list of blocked people on Facebook:

A. Log in to your account at Facebook.com.

B. Click Account in the upper right corner of the page.

C. From the drop down menu that appears, select Privacy Settings.

D. Scroll down to the bottom, and under Block Lists, click the "Edit your lists" link.

If you have ever blocked anyone on Facebook, you should see their names here under "Block users." Beneath that is the section where your blocked application invites will be displayed, if you have any.

To unblock a user, just find their name on the list and click "Unblock" next to the name. A confirmation box will appear to make sure you want to do that -- click the Confirm button. That person's name will be removed from the block list, and they can now contact you. If you decide you want to block them again, you'll have to wait 2 days in order to add them back onto your blocked list.

If you want to add a user to the blocked list, just type in either their name or email address (in the appropriate box) and click Block This User. If there is more than one person with that name, a list of possible choices will appear with each person's profile picture. Choose the one you want to block and click Block. You won't get a confirmation box here, so if you pick the wrong person, just unblock them and do it again to pick the right one.
