How can i remove someone from my family members option who has blocked me in facebook?

What is blocking? What happens when I block someone? You can block someone to unfriend them and prevent them from starting conversations with you or seeing things you post on your profile.
People you block can no longer:
  • See things you post on your profile
  • Tag you
  • Invite you to events or groups
  • Start a conversation with you
  • Add you as a friend
Blocking is reciprocal, so you also won't be able to do things like start a conversation with them or add them as a friend. Keep in mind that blocking someone may not prevent all communications or interactions, such as in apps or groups, and only affects your experience on Facebook, not elsewhere on the web.
Note: Removing a block will not restore the friend connection. If you block a friend and then remove that person from your block list, you'll need to send them a new friend request.

Control your Digg privacy settings


Like Facebook and many other social networking sites, Digg has several privacy options that (if you don't watch them closely) could allow complete strangers to find out personal information about you. For any web site that you join, it's a good idea to check the privacy settings as soon as your account is created.

When you sign up with Digg, your privacy settings by default are configured so that anyone visiting the site can view your full name, age, gender, and location, and even search for you by your email address. Some users may be okay with giving out all of this information, but many people probably are not (and are likely not even aware that this information has been made public).

To change your privacy settings on Digg, log into your account, go to your profile (click the Profile link along the top) and click the Settings tab under your name. Your basic settings will be listed under Personal Info and Photos, and you can view the Advanced Options by clicking "Show Advanced Options" below the Photos settings.

To make your information as private as possible, choose "Nobody" for each setting -- or, if you want to share some of the information with your friends, you can set it for "My Friends." Look through each of the settings and decide how much of your personal data you want to make public. When you've made all of the changes you want, click the Save Changes button at the bottom to make the changes take effect.

Facebook Privacy Settings


2 Loopholes in Facebook Privacy

1) It is very important to remember that whatever you post on other people's Walls are visible to all the friends of that person. So your Facebook profile may be viewable only to your friends, but if you post something scandalous on a friend's Wall, that is going to be visible to that friend's friends, even if you're not friends with that person.

2) Did you know that by default, your profile is viewable by friends in your NETWORK? This network may be regional (like San Francisco, CA), which makes it visible to a lot more people than you can imagine.

So make sure you know exactly who can see your profile, photos, and comments, before you post something you'll regret!31a160e.gif

Wont accept my password 4 facebook mixing me up with person of same name


Facebook is a social network website where people can interact with their friends online. Users can share what they're doing or thinking, and they can share links and videos and comment on things their friends share.

But the rule is that you have to be yourselfand use your own name.

In trying to verify such things, the computer verification system inevitably makes mistakes, so it might have made a mistake if it rejected the name you tried to use.
Facebook Name Standards

Facebook wants people to be themselves and not pretend to be someone else, so it requires users to use their real first and last names when they sign up for a Facebook personal profile.

This means that you can't pretend to be your friend Joe, you can't sign up for a Facebook account under your pet's name, you can't use a name you use in a video game or the name of a movie character.

Also, couples are not supposed to sign up for a single account using both their names. Names can be rejected if they contain symbols, numerals or punctuation, or are capitalized in an unusual way.

You also shouldn't include a title such as Mr. or Dr.
You can add a nickname or maiden name in place of a middle name because Facebook realizes people are sometimes known under different names for legitimate reasons.

Email Address Problems

To keep people from signing up for more than one personal profile, Facebook won't let you sign up for two Facebook accounts using the same email address.

If you find there is already a Facebook account associated with your email address, ask to have the password sent to you and verify whether it's your account and you just forgot you set it up.

Also, make sure you type the address in the correct format.
It needs to have an @ sign and a complete domain name; "@gmail" is not correct, but instead should be "@gmail.com" for example.

If your email address begins with "info" or "webmaster" Facebook may assume this is a generic address for an organization and not an individual.
How to Protest

If you are convinced you are trying to use a name that is allowed and still getting rejected, you can fill out the Facebook "Name Rejected" form (facebook.com/help/reg.php?show form=name rejected).

Remember also that you have to be 13 years of age or older to be a Facebook member.
The form asks for your date of birth, so that could trigger a rejection also if you are too young.
Other Options

If you are associated with a business, a brand or an event, you can create a Facebook Page (also sometimes called a Fan Page or a Business Page).

You can do this at Facebook's Create a Page section (facebook.com/pages/create.php) to represent a business, place, company, organization, brand or product, artist, band, public figure, some form of entertainment, cause or community.

You can also create a group at the Groups page (facebook.com/groups).

These are options to let you interact on Facebook if you represent something that is not an individual person.
If your Facebook profile is still unavailable after many days, then send an email to
info@facebook.com,
appeals@facebook.com or
disabled@facebook.com and explain them the issue.

Once you send them an email, your account will be available again soon.

How to log out of facebook sharing


Facebook gives you the necessary privacy controls to adjust sharing on your profile. You can limit how people tag you in photos and videos, stipulate how people comment or share your posts and restrict the ability to share content or make posts to your Facebook wall. Additionally, you can prevent people from revealing your location through Facebook Places, which is especially important when you don't want all your friends knowing where you are. The Facebook Places feature lets you or your friends check in at different locations and share where you are with the convenience of a mobile phone.

Sign in to your Facebook account, go to the "Account" menu and select "Privacy Settings." Go to the "Sharing on Facebook" section and click the "Customize Settings" link near the bottom. Go to the "Things Others Share" section and edit the settings you want to change. Click the "Edit Settings" button for "Photos and videos you're tagged in" if you want to restrict who can see the photos and videos you are in. Click the check box for "Friends can post on my Wall" to deselect the item. When you do this, then your friends cannot post or share items to your Facebook wall. Click "Edit Settings" for the "Friends can check me in to Places" option. On the next screen, select the "Enabled" button and switch it to "Disabled." Click the "Okay" button when done. Now your friends cannot share your location.

Cannot share to facebook?


Facebook and Twitter are both amazing social networking sites. If you use Twitter, you know that one of it's great features is the Retweet, which allows you to pass on a post you receive to your friends and followers. Retweeting makes it very easy to share information in Twitter.

Facebook also allows you to share a friend's posted link in much the same way as a Retweet! Using the Share feature, you can post a friend's item to your own Profile and Live Feed, while giving them credit with a Via message.

This lets all your friends see posts that you receive from people that may not be on everyone's list. It's a great way to pass on fun, interesting or important links that you want to share with all, or just some, of your friends.

It's easy to use this feature. Here is How To Use The Facebook Share Via Feature.

First of all, Facebook currently doesn't let you Share everything that your friends post. You cannot Share their Status Updates or Photos.

You can Share any of their Posted Links. This would include websites, links, or videos that a friend or organization posts to their News Feed. To simplify how to know what things you can Share, just look for the word "Share" under the item. It will be next to the "Comment" and "Like" choices, and if it's there, you can Share! If a friend has posted an item that you want to Share and post to your Profile page with a Via credit, click on the "Share" link underneath the item. A "Post To Profile" box will pop up. You can write a message in the text box that will post along with the Shared item, or you can just leave it blank and let the post speak for itself. You can also click on "Send as a Message instead". This allows you to share the post with just one friend, a list, or an email address. The default setting is to display a small thumbnail picture of the posted item along with the post, so if you don't want the thumbnail to show, you have to select the "No Thumbnail" box. Normally you would use the default setting and display the thumbnail. Let's say you choose to Share it on your Profile and Live Feed. Just click on the "Share" button to post the item. You will get a confirmation message on the screen that the message was posted to your Profile. Click on your Profile or the Live News Feed to see how the Shared message looks to the rest of the world. The originator of the message will be given credit by placing the word "Via" in front of their name by the reposted item. You've just done the Facebook version of a Retweet!

  • Sharing with a broad audience: Use the share menu that's located at the top of your home page and profile. From there, you can update your status and share photos, videos, links and other application content. Things you share will appear as posts on your profile, and can appear in News Feed. (To control whether or not specific people have the option to view your stories, you can change the privacy settings for each piece of content you post.)
  • Sharing with a small group of friends: Use the Groups feature to share content with a select group of people, like family members, your soccer team or your book club.
  • Sharing with an individual: You can use the share menu at the top of a friend's profile to write or share something on his or her Wall. Friends of your friend will also be able to view your post. If you'd like to share something privately, you can always send someone a private message.

I don't know what a profile setting is


a profile setting is anything that is relevant to you and the way that you use your PC and access the interent: your email address - your favourites folder - time zones - how your PC starts - web homepage etc In fact anything that you choose to set-up about yourself, is your profile. If you use any of the chat/friends websites you will have created a profile setting - that determines whether you want to be seen online, who you want to share info with etc, etc. Get the idea? If your PC is used by more than one person, each person will have their own profile settings: basically, personal choices for using the computer. Does this help explain what a profile setting is? If not, please post again ;-}
