Facebook gives you the option to block a person bothering you in your Facebook account. When you block a person, he/she is unable to call or message you using his/her account that you blocked. And if you ever wish to unblock a person, you can easily do so by going to the blocked list on your Facebook.
While blocking and unblocking is a simple task and user can easily carry out this action, what users generally seek assistance is when they are unable to find the person after they unblock in their Facebook account. If you also can’t find an unblocked person’s Facebook profile, there can be different reasons for it. Below you can find the information about the causes and workarounds that can help you overcome the problem.
Causes Due to Which You Can’t Find the Facebook Profile of a Person you Unblocked
Following are the reasons along with the solution that can help you overcome the problem of not being able to find the unblocked person’s FB profile.
The Person has Blocked you
The most common reason due to which you might be unable to find the Facebook profile of the person you unblocked is that he/she might have blocked you in his/her account. In such a case you can either ask a common friend (if any) to ask the person to unblock you or if you are connected through any other social networking site, you can send a message using the account of that site.
The Person Deactivate His or Her Account
Another reason that might be responsible for making you unable to find the FB profile of the unblocked person is that he/she might have deactivated his/her Facebook account. If this is the case, you will not be able to connect with the person on Facebook. However, you can search for the profile of the person every couple of days in case the person might have deactivated his/her account temporarily.
The Person Changed his Facebook Account Name
If you are searching for the profile of the person you unblocked using his/her name, you will not be able to find the account in case that person would have changed his old name. In such a case, you can try searching for the account using the email address of the person.
Facebook Might Have Blocked you Both from Seeing Each Other
In case you reported the account of the person you unblocked earlier for reasons like violence, nudity, or abusive language, Facebook might have blocked you both from contacting each other. In such a case, you can become friends again only when one of you creates a new Facebook account and uses that to contact each other.
You Blocked/Unblocked Multiple Times
If one of you has blocked and unblocked each other a lot of times in the past, Facebook might have permanently blocked you both from contacting each other using the current account. In such a case also, you or the unblocked person may consider creating a new account to become friends again on Facebook.
If You Are Unable to the Send Friend Request
If after following the above-mentioned workarounds you are able to find the Facebook profile of the person you unblocked but you are unable to send the friend request, this could because the person might have configured his account to only accept request from friends of friends. If this is the case, you can first send a message to the person and request him/her to allow you to send the friend request.
So, now as you know the causes and workarounds to fix the issue of not being able to find the Facebook profile of the person you unblocked, you can easily overcome the problem in your account.
