How to Block Messages on Your Facebook Website


When you block another user on Messenger, you will no longer be able to read messages or accept conversation requests from the person you have blocked. You are also unable to get in touch with the person who sent the message. In addition, you are informed before entering a group conversation if the person you block is taking part in the conversation with other people. If you choose to participate in a chat with a person who you have previously blocked, that individual will be able to communicate with you while you are participating in that chat. If you prevent someone from contacting you through Facebook Messenger, but not through Facebook itself, they will still be able to use Facebook to communicate with their friends and family. This post will teach you how to block messages on the Facebook website so that you don’t receive them. So let’s get started:
