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.
