    Here’s why you can’t block Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook

    Mark Zuckerberg has a lot of Facebook friends, 95 million and counting, but for those who want to unfriend the tech billionaire, it can be a little more difficult than becoming his mate.  
    It turns out that blocking the Facebook founder on the social network he created is actually impossible, you can’t do it.
    Users who try and block the philanthropist, receive the message: “This profile can’t be blocked for now.
     “You can report Pages or profiles if you think they’re doing something that goes against our Community Standards.
    “If you think you’re seeing this by mistake, please let us know.”
    So why can’t you block the Facebook overlord?
    Well, it turns out that so many users have already tried to block the tech guru that Facebook has generated a response to stop him from being targeted by viral campaigns.
    “The error isn’t specific to any one account,” a Facebook spokesperson revealed earlier this year.  
    “It’s generated when a person has been blocked a certain large number of times. In very rare instances, a viral campaign will develop instructing lots of people to all wrongly block the same person.”
    When you block someone on Facebook it means they will no longer be able to tag you or see things you post on your timeline. Blocking them will also unfriend them.
