How to block someone from a page on Facebook

Has someone been flooding your Facebook page with spam posts and comments? You don’t need to keep deleting them manually – follow these steps to block someone from your Facebook page. 

Blocking – or banning – someone from your Facebook page means they’ll no longer be able to publish to your page, like or comment on posts on the page, message the page or like the page. They will, however, still be able to share content from your page elsewhere on Facebook.
