Facebook: Deactivated or Blocked?

I have a friend who recently became "invisible" to me on Facebook: Can't find her in the search box, on my friends list or on any of our mutual friends' lists. She sent me a message a while back, so I went to see if it was still in my inbox...it is, but her picture is gone and her name appears in black letters without an active link to her page.

After doing some research, it appears that this could only mean one of two things:
1. She deactivated/deleted her account, or
2. She blocked me.
3. when I log into my fake account, search for our mutual friends and look through THEIR friend lists, she doesn't appear. It's like she's just not there anymore.

Short of asking our mutual friends about it, is there any way to distinguish between the two?

...Sorry, one more thing to add. I was playing around with the settings on my fake account and found that blocking myself (real account) made it so that I couldn't see my fake account in another person's "Info", i.e. the "in a relationship with ___." It used to say "in a relationship with H.C.", now it just says "in a relationship". Clear as mud? Regarding the person in my original question: I can still see her name in people's "info" as a sibling, but the link to her page is dead. Does this mean her account has been deleted?

I can still see her name in a mutual friends' "Info" section as a sibling, but the link to her page is dead (black letters). When I tried this with a fake account (blocking my real account), the name disappeared from our mutual friends' "Info" altogether...i.e., where it once said "In a relationship with H.C." it now only says "In a relationship" after blocking myself. Does this mean the girl from my original question has had her account deleted since I can still see her name in a friend's "Info"? Because it doesn't work like that when you're blocked.

(I'm freaking out a bit because I used to glance at her profile pretty often...hope there's no way for her to know that! Ugh!)

Thanks in advance!

Facebook Messenger

Hi I have a friend who I have always chatted to in messenger on Facebook. A few days ago something went wrong with his account. he came back online today ,we are still friends and he can write on my timeline, I cant write on his timeline, but I can comment on his photos, he can send me messages on messenger but I now have no message box at the bottom of screen for me to reply... I do have it on all other contacts, if I go into send a new message I can send one but not chat instantly with him? any ideas .. the screen shows him only as facebook user and no profile photo but we are Facebook friends. ???

thanks

Re: Facebook Messenger
have him check through all of his security, sharing and privacy settings to make sure he hasnt accidentally blocked you or increased the security settings on his account. If he's certain he has not changed anything then something is broken and there isnt much we can do for you. He would have to contact the near nonexistant Facebook Support or wait and hope that it someday fixes itself.

Facebook: Deactivated or Blocked?
My friend got his phone wet last weekend and it has not been working right he sent me a text last night saying that he was trying to get his cell fixed and would text me when it was. A couple hours later he is no longer on my friends list on facebook and his name is blacked out on his comments on my wall. I can search for him and he still comes up so I am not thinking he has blocked me because my exhusband has blocked me and I can not find anything when I search him. When I click on my friend to go to his profile it says "Sorry this page isn't available. The link you followed maybe broken or the page may have been removed." One of his other friends that has been a friend for quite some time said that she was experiencing the same thing. We both can't seem to get a hold of him via text or call (keeps ringing or message saying this caller is currently not accepting calls right now" IS this a glich? Have we been blocked? Has he deactivated his account?

You people (or children) are all pitiful. If you are blocked by the person and you don't know why either ask them about it (in REAL LIFE), or just move on with your miserable life. Is Facebook and people on it, that you don't really know, that important and worth so much time an angst? GET A LIFE PEOPLES!

What does the FaceBook message "sorry this page isn't available" (with the thumb image) mean? Has the account been deleted?

Re: Facebook: Deactivated or Blocked?

I have a question:
so im on facebook and i look at my friends profile quiet alot. Then all sudden on day her profile picture is blank but i can still click her name link, but its says it been deactivated (its in blue on friends list).

So im starting to think either deactivated or blocked. A couple months later its says she is back on and i was able to access her profile, she had a picture and everything. Then next day her profile picture is not up on my friends list her mutual friends and friends list is gone and i cant access her account again, or message her.

Two questions:
1: can someone know your looking at their profile and
2: am i blocked or the account has been deactivated.

Re: Facebook: Deactivated or Blocked?

2): Why don't you just ask her?

Re: Facebook: Deactivated or Blocked?

Over a year ago I blocked someone along with their friends and family. However, today I was told by someone that I am still listed on this 'past friends' page, as well as still being listed as a 'family' member.

My icon shows as well as my name. I have deleted all apps and every tagged picture I can find of this person. I understand past post or messages can not be deleted.

It bothers me greatly that I am still listed on this person's page as a friend/family member.

If I have blocked them why am I still listed this way on their page?

Thanks!

Re: Facebook: Deactivated or Blocked?
Did you get an answer? I am having the same problem with a family member I deleted and blocked. My mom went on her facebook page and I am still listed as her cousin. I need this removed and dont know how to do it.

Re: Facebook: Deactivated or Blocked?
In my facebook message archive I have old messages from ex-friends (in a facebook sense) Some have the persons name blacked and not clickable and the standard profile photograph, others show as Facebook User - also not clickable, and standard profile photograph. Is this the difference between deactivated and blocked profiles?

Re: Facebook: Deactivated or Blocked?
My main Facebook home page is now blank. I still have the list of friends at the right hand side. Now I may have inadvertently wiped this in some way but do not know. I have tried going into account settings and the help pages but they are of no use at all as the Facebook page remains stubbornly blank. Any ideas?

Re: Facebook: Deactivated or Blocked?

Unless you accidentally hit the "turn my facebook page blank" button, i dont think you did this - the problem is probobly in your browser OR some problem (probably temporary) on Facebook's end.
Does it look this way when you check from another web-browser, another computer, or when you are logged-out of Facebook? If not, then try rebooting your computer and clearing the browser cache and cookies.

If it looks this way on all computers and when your friends look at the page, then it's a problem with Facebook.. In this case they will probably fix it.. eventually.. someday.. maybe.. hopefully..

Blocked on facebook friend still showing

are you sure you blocked him?
.. i think the steps would be UNfriend him, then block him.. but i think that you shouldnt see him anymore even if you didnt unfriend him and then blocked him.
