How to Block on Social Media

While social media is often a place to connect with your friends and relatives, it can easily become a place for unwelcome users as well. One of the greatest aspects of today’s social media outlets is that each of them have developed a way for you to block or delete anyone that you do not want to see your posts or to contact you. While blocking may occasionally seem harsh, you have the right to control every one of your social media outlets so that you are comfortable and safe.

I am a SOVA team member who loves having fun and helping others. Animals, dancing, and my friends make me the happiest. Self reflection and surrounding myself with positive people help me when I am down. I enjoy reading and watching movies in my spare time. I have suffered from depression earlier in my life, but am learning to love life for the positive moments in every day. Favorite quote: "Not all those who wander are lost."- J. R. R. Tolkien
