What happens when you block someone on Facebook?

Will they know about me blocking them?

-If they search for you, they won't be able to see you, message your or interact with you in ANY way.
-Blocking is not permanent, you can unblock them from your Privacy menu.
-Also, you won't be able to see their profile, and interact with them in any way.

Hope that helps!

I don't think they'll know that you blocked them, but it's not a big deal if they do anyways.

When you block someone they'll see a page that says "The page you requested was not found." which is also shown when a person deactivates their profile. They'll only notice if they look at your profile through another profile or use an app that can detect if you blocked them.

Actually they do, and I made one of them (or possibly the first one if no one else has). It's called Handy Dandy Friend Checker. Try it out with two profiles if you don't believe me.

Basically what I did was sync the user's friends with the database, check if any friends who are in the database are missing from their current friend list and if any are missing it checks whether they are unfriended, blocked or deleted. Blocked is basically checked by using cURL on the public Facebook graph API URL and if they exist on there (basically data is returned instead of "false") but not with the private Facebook graph API lookup (which sees what the user can see using their own profile) then they have blocked you, if they don't exist there either then their profile was either deactivated or suspended (deleted).

I will try, lol. Let me find it and see if it works.

SSL error on the Facebook App.

Unfortunately the free web host I have it hosted on doesn't support SSL. You'll need to use the app while in regular browsing mode.

lol, I just found a trick to get SSL to work with my app. I simply created a private page on my Google Sites web site (which supports SSL) with an iFrame to my app and changed the SSL URL of the app to the Google Sites page and it works. So you can try it out without turning off secure browsing if you want.
