The surprising reason why you can’t block Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook.
Find out why the billionaire social network supremo wants to be your friend, whether you like it or not.
THERE are many reasons why you’d want to hide away from Mark Zuckerberg and his all-pervasive social network.
But if you’re already on Facebook, it turns out there’s no way of hiding from the billionaire because it’s impossible for users to “block” his account.
Facebook allows you to block people who are annoying or threatening.
However, it’s emerged that Zuck’s own page can’t be blocked – because so many people have tried to silence him already.
The social network spoke out after being asked if this was due to a bug.
“This error isn’t specific to any one account,” a Facebook spokesperson told The Guardian.
“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.
“The purpose of this system is to protect the experience for people targeted by these campaigns. We’re constantly working to improve our systems and are taking a closer look at this one.”
We tried to block Zuck and were met with the words: “This profile can’t be blocked for now.”
If you want to block people, just go into Facebook’s settings page and go into the “blocking” section.
Zuck’s firm is developing tech that can read human thoughts at 100 words per minute.
He’s also rumoured to be planning to stand for President, perhaps becoming the first politician in history with the ability to understand his victims’, sorry, constituents’ actual thoughts.
And if the billionaire makes it to the White House, you probably won’t be able to block him in real life either.
