I have just deactivated my Facebook account. Can someone still block me? Am I still showing up on their friends list for them to do so?
I have had a couple friends deactivate their accounts temporarily. In each instance, I was not able to see them in my friends list anymore, and their comments to my posts disappeared as well.
If you deactivate your account, you will not appear in anyone's friends list, and no one will be able to find you. They have to be able to find you in order to block you, so no one will be able to block you while your account is deactivated.
Yes they still can block/ignore you according to this tutorial
you can still see the deactivated friend on your list if you are using the browser which shows an empty profile pic. However, if you are using the FB app, deactivated friends wont appear on your friends listing. Note: you can still 'unfriend' a deactivated account using the browser sign in NOT through the app but there is no option of blocking the person. you need to wait until they are active to block them.
