Is there a difference b/t blocking and unfriending someone on Facebook? If so, what is the difference?

I have someone that is acting like a weirdo, sort of stalkerish. I did unfriend him, but I don't want him to be able to message me either.

If you unfriend that person can still your name, posts, etc. if you tag, comment on, or like a post for a mutual FB friend.

If you block, you see nothing of each other's posts, names, comments, etc. I did it with XWH and OW - SOOOO much nicer.

Block. STBX commented on photos of my brother's wedding. Don't know why she was still friends with the poster but whatever.

Bottom line, I saw none of it. I'm completely shielded from her posts, comments, photos etc, and she can't see mine.

Much nicer that way.

Block especially if they're stalking a bit.

It works for me!!!

Blocking makes it look as if you don't have a FB profile at all. They can't see anything. Your profile, photos that are public, or any comments that may come up on a mutual page like a group page or a friend's page. It's really the best option.

I have many people blocked. I unfortunately have had to block some married men I know who started acting stalkerish and inappropriate. I don't even want them to see my profile photo.

Thanks y'all! Yep, I had a creepy stalker that kept trying to message me, and said weird things, then got a little nasty/aggressive when I did not respond. A lil scary. I blocked him.
