3. Know if the Messaging is Blocked on Messenger

Additionally, Facebook messenger is an incredible way to communicate. With Messenger, we can chat boundlessly and now the live call is available on the latest version of Facebook Messenger. But when it says unable to send messages and shows an error then it becomes truly disturbing.

As you know messenger got popular to chat and to make calls for free. There is no timeline to have to face. The reason it is popular for its user-friendliness. But, if you got blocked on Facebook messenger by someone, you can confirm this with two things.

When some chats are going on and a continuous chat (one of those) get stopped then this influence our mindset to off.

Here we will talk about a few matters which will reveal what occurred with that. Either this individual blocked you while chat was going on or he just has deactivated his profile. Along these lines, as a matter of first importance, refresh the messenger app and check what is appearing in the name of that individual.

i) If you see any connection error with your app, it would not load and will show the same error. In that case, you cannot be sure that he blocked you. 

ii) But, if you see 'Facebook User' on that name then it might be the reason that he blocked you. To make it confirm we need to do another test, after that we can state what is an actual case here!...

For confirmation, go to desktop or mobile browser window in incognito mode (while logged out) and open the person's profile URL. If you are able to find that one then you are blocked, but if not able to find, it means he deactivated his Facebook profile. It is simple.

How to Find out if You're Blocked only on Facebook Chat?

If you unable to send messages to a person but on the other hand you can do other all stuff then it means he blocked you in Chat or Messenger but not Facebook. You are still a friend with that person and he can unblock you anytime he wants.


1. Does Facebook notify you if someone has blocked you? 
No, never. It is some inward arrangement of Facebook that does not let to inform that individual that who are blocked.

no notification on facebook block
2. Is it Possible to see future posts of the person who blocked you? 
Absolutely not. If someone blocks you, you would not have the capacity to find that individual anymore. If the comments and likes on any posts you would not see that. It is fully hidden like the person is not accessible on Facebook by you.


When you are not blocked but rather additionally unable to see him If you are unable to see the person either with the new ID or with logging out then this may be the cause that the person deactivated this profile or set his privacy only for friends of friends. This is really tricky now to find the person.

But, I have likewise a simple and incredible answer to this. As you were friends with that person, that is why you might have remembered any of the mutual friends of the person. So, if you remembered such a person then all set. Just, send a friend request with your new ID to that mutual friend at this moment.

(Note: It is conceivable that if the individual has blocked you in old profile then you are not going to see him with that profile. Along these lines, we are utilizing new ID) 

If someone blocks you on Facebook, the better approach to contact that individual with another profile. So, if you get blocked to send messages and want to check the person, look into your friend list. Find, if any friend missing from there. But, if you see a friend named 'Facebook User' on your friend list then that means the person deactivated his or her account.
