What happens when you block someone?

  • Their posts will be removed from your feed and email digests, and you won't see them in the future.
  • You won't be able to follow them. You can see their profile, but not their posts. 
  • Any responses they've left on your posts won't be visible to readers unless they visit the blocked user's profile page.
  • Blocked users cannot leave notes, recommend, or otherwise interact with your content. They can @mention you, but you will not be notified.
  • Blocked users will not be able to follow you or view your content while logged in. If a blocked user visits your profile, they’ll see a message that they’ve been blocked.
  • Any of your stories added to a blocked user's List will be removed from their Lists.
