  • I think that it bothers people becuase they arent able to see what a person is saying about them, etc. Most people today are confrontational, and want to be able to defend themselves or retaliate. Would be my guess.

  • I care because I don't understand it. One minute we were buddies, sharing phone calls, playdates and our kids were best friends and the next she owes me $150 and suddenly blocks me and cuts off all contact. -OR- One day they just vanish and when I want to ask them a question, see how they are doing or just chat they are gone and I am blocked.

    Clearly, it is one thing to be given an explanation as to why you are blocked but it is another for the person just to up and block you with no warning or reason. These are supposed to be your "friends" don't you want to know why they are no longer your "friends"?

  • Facebook is like we're all still in high school. So & so, gossip, and all.
    Bring blocked is like bring picked last on the okay ground, it just isn't your day.
    Tomorrow it'll be someone else.
    If she owes you money, she blocked you so she can continue to post about going out, eating out & having s hood time with your money. She could be paying you back with...
    Just my thoughts - I live facrbook, seeing family & friend and their family. But some people just.put too much information!.

  • It wouldn't bother me if it's someone who never talked...but like the anonymous poster said if you were really involved with a 'friend' like I've been in the're like wth?? I had one do that to me and we talked on the phone every day. It hurts. Just like an in person friendship. Worse so coz you can't do a thing to ask what happened?

  • I think I would actually at least a bit offended if someone blocked me on FB...because I don't use it like I'm in high school, but rather as a family/friend update and news feed. Personally, I don't see why people feel the need to use it like their diary, at the very least, it can get you fired or not hired from a job for being an idiot.

  • A lot of people use facebook as a way to keep in touch with people they know in REAL LIFE. So if one of my friends or family blocked me, I would be really sad and wonder why.
