Help -- I'm getting unwanted/unsolicited messages from an ex on FB, who is not a friend (actually someone who got "unfriended" a long time ago)...This person does not appear on my friend list. How do I block this person from sending me messages?

Click on Account on the top right of the page, then go to privacy settings. At the bottom, you will see something that says Block Lists. I think you can block him from there. He won't even be able to see that you have a FB profile.

You go into your Account Settings (right hand corner), then Privacy, and then you can check off down on the list "can comment on posts", and check "friends only". That way only your friends on your friends list can comment. HTH.

You can also go into those same account settings and set it so that only friends can send you private messages.

Just go to their profile, on the lower left hand side you'll see a "block" link.

do that... I'd also report him to fB for harassment. If you want to keep record of those messages tho, print them out because once you block someone, all their emails will disappear from your inbox.
