BAN PEOPLE FROM YOUR FACEBOOK PAGE EVEN IF THEY DON’T LIKE YOUR PAGE

Update: This does not work as of 5th May 2020 due to backend changes on facebook

There are times when you will want to ban someone from your business page. Problem is if they don’t like your page it does seem impossible!

It is not. It just requires a little ingenuity using Facebooks Graph API.




Follow the instructions in this video (below) and learn how you can ban people from Facebook pages preemptively.

A users numeric ID (which you will need) can be retrieved with “Find Your Facebook ID“.

If this does not work, using a PC … right-click the page or the profile, select view-source which open up a page full of code. Then search in that code for “profileid” using CTRL+F …that will also reveal the users ID amongst the code:

data-profileid=”16579xxxxx”

  1. hello
    I went through the steps above to block a couple of trolls from my business fb page who left inappropriate negative reviews. it appears I was successful in blocking/banning the users, but their reviews are still visible on the business’ page… help?!

  2. Thanks for the very helpful video. I’ve followed it through but I’m stumped when I get to ‘Add parameter’. The only similar option I can see is ‘Add a Field’. Any advice would be appreciated.

  3. Hi! I don’t know if you’re still monitoring this post. I just tried this, but am getting the error: “(33) this object does not exist or does not support this action” when I submit the user ID in the parameters. Is this because of something that has been updated since the video was made, or have I done something wrong? The user’s ID also seemed to be blocking search engines so I pulled it from their profile photo address, instead. Is it a setting of theirs? Thank you!

  4. Hi again,

    I did try to find the user ID via findmyfbid.com/ and others like it, but the user’s settings seem to be blocking search engines. “Sorry, we could not find your Facebook numeric ID. The most common reason for this failure is that you need to temporarily allow search engine access to the public information on your profile page. To do this, go to your Facebook privacy settings page and allow search engines to link to your timeline.” So will this not work, no matter what I do? I did get the ID via other means, and Graph API Explorer says they don’t exist.

  5. liked your page but didn’t unlock the video. I know how to block using the API but haven’t done it for awhile so I know I’m missing a step. can you please make the video available?
