How to unblock a blocked friend from Facebook Restricted List

Many of our friends have annoying Facebook habits. They keep tagging us in totally unwanted and unrelated images. This cycle of tag notifications can get very annoying at times leaving us with no option but to block them from our friend list.

Once you add any of your friends to the restricted list only posts and information that you make public is made visible to them. Also, when you block someone the person no longer remains friends with you on Facebook and cannot interact with you. So, if you think you have been too harsh with your friends and regret your actions, Facebook gives you a chance to escape the guilt, unnoticed by ‘UNBLOCKING’ your friend and adding him to your friend list, again.
