I unblock someone on Facebook lite and I can’t find them
How do you know if someone blocked you on Facebook?
There are different ways to know if someone on Facebook has blocked you already. Try to find that person through his/her email address/phone number and if you cannot, then probably he/she blocked you. Also, try to send that person a message via Facebook, you will get a notification that this person is not receiving messages from you.
One other way is to check that person on your friend’s list, if he/she is not there, it is confirmed that they have blocked your Facebook. If everything works fine and you are not able to see their posts, etc. Then there is a possibility that they have added you to the restricted list on FB.
How can I see someone’s profile if they have blocked me?
I will be straightforward on this If someone is blocked on your Facebook and you wanna see their profile using your account, then it is impossible. The only way you can see someone’s profile if they have blocked you is to create a new or fake account. Then search for their username or email or phone number to find and see their profile. Other than that you will be only wasting your time checking for a solution.
