I spend a lot of time on Facebook and I have heard many stories from friends of how Facebook has caused problems with friends and family relating to arguments or offending others on Facebook. I personally have never had a problem like this ever. Until now.
Without going into too much detail and making the situation worse than it already is, I have certain people (extended “family” you could say) blocked from my Facebook profile, meaning I may as well not exist to them because they can’t find me and for good reason. Let’s call them “person A“. I don’t want “person A” to know anything about my personal life and want to keep it as private as I possibly can. However, their extended family members, “person B” saw something on my page, passes on the info, and “person A” got upset about it. So I blocked “person B” which I would have blocked in the beginning anyways if I had though about it.
Anyways…. Ugh, so high school-ish, right?
“Person A” is now upset that I blocked “person B” because they “did nothing wrong”. So now I look petty, immature, and like the bad guy all because I wanted to keep my privacy so it wouldn’t cause problems in the first place. I can’t win. So what do I do? Do I act as the better person, unblock these people (even though we still are not Facebook friends and they still won’t have access to very much anyways), or do I keep them blocked and continue minding my own business and hope they mind their own business (ha ha)?
What is the correct etiquette for blocking people?
If I would not invite you to my house, show you my photo album, and tell you the latest going on in my life, why would I share it with you on Facebook? I wouldn’t, you would be blocked.
That’s what’s so great about Facebook, you can control who sees what!
