How to Tell if Someone has Restricted You on Facebook? - from Seeing Posts

Do you unable to see shared posts of your friend on Facebook Timeline? Because maybe he has set a privacy restriction or blocked you from seeing his posts. For a quick check, if you can see his profile then you are not blocked totally, that you can be sure.

Then what?

Facebook has some advanced privacy settings for users. Users now can control the entire profile privacy of their own. So, this might be due to the person has set some lockup privacy settings which made the changes to their posts and photos.

If the person had unfriended you on Facebook it also hides posts and pics of that person from you due to some privacy settings. Those would be visible on his wall until you are a friend of the person again.

So, if you need the final check for this just go with few methods.

1. Check Friend's Timeline vs Mutual Friend's Timeline

The method I will describe here will be enough to know the fact. Just go to your mutual friend profile wall posts and find if the person has any tagged stuff with the mutual one. Once found, check it on that person's wall. If you are not able to see that same stuff on that profile wall then this tells he has restricted you from seeing his wall.

2. Ask a Mutual Friend to Check the Stuff for You

Also another set up is here which helps users to particularly restrict only one user from seeing any stuff which is shared or posted by other people. This thing easily revealed if you can check his profile using a mutual friend ID or ask some other friends to check this for you. If some are not able like you that can mean he has restricted many others like you.

These two methods are enough to get the inside fact out.

Is it Possible to Block Someone from Seeing Future Posts on Facebook?

Yes. Now it is possible as Facebook developed many privacy settings which control many things on your profile and the shared stuff.

Let's talk about the reasons for doing this.

There are some people who don't like your posts to see and send unusual comments or you need someone to not show your stuff for the lifetime. Then, this step is beneficial in doing so automatically.

Here is the procedure on how to stop a friend from seeing your stuff:

1. Go to 'Settings' and then click on 'Privacy'.


2. There you will see the option 'Who can see your future posts?'. Now select 'Friends except...' option from the list.

This is one the best settings to restrict a person instead of blocking him permanently to hide your posts from him.


1. What Can You see if you are restricted?

If you are set to see none then probably you will only see the mutual friend's stuff on his timeline if that one also is not restricted. However, you can see old posts which were posted before the settings charged.

2. Can friends see past posts?

Yes. For this settings, if the person previously had public posts then after changing the settings, those will be still available to view.
