Have you ever had someone posting inappropriate content or trying to incite another fan on your Facebook fan page? It could simply be someone who tries to use your wall as their advertising platform. If you have asked nicely and they simply won’t stop, what can you do? How can you remove or block them from your page?

Here is the step-by-step process of removing or blocking someone from your Facebook fan page.

1. While logged in as admin, visit your fan page and click “SHOW” in the upper right hand corner above your timeline cover.

3. After clicking on See All, a list of your fans will appear. Find the person you wish to ban and click the “X” next to their name. Using Ctrl+F to search for the fan’s name can help you locate them more quickly.

    HI Kim,
    Can you remove comments you don't want others to see?  Have a client who doesn't want a FB page since they are afraid a customer might complain…
    TY for your insight!

    When I clicked “People who likes this” Facebook only shows the most recent likers who liked my page and it only shows a limited number of likers even after I clicked all the See All buttons. I want to remove someone who liked my page a long time ago. How can I see everyone who has liked my page since Day 1? Can you help me? THanks

    If you block someone from your fan page, what happens to their prior comments or postings? Does it revert to ‘Facebook User’ or still show their name?

    I want to block someone from commenting on my page but as someone mentioned previously, the “people who like this” only lists the most recent people. How can I block someone who liked the page from the beginning?

    What happens when you do all of the above but the people in question do not appear on the fan page? How can they be deleted or banned??

    I hope you can help me…
    I have problem with a person that’s stalking me so I wonder if you can you block a person from your fanpage that you have blocked at your private facebook page? I mean, does their name appear when you search for it as admin on the fanpage?
    If not, I have a problem… I have blocked the person on my private page and therefore I can’t see the person when I search after him…..

    Thank you Kim. I have an instance with someone who has not liked a clients page yet they are sending unwanted private messages to the page. I understand that this person cannot be blocked since they have not liked the page. What about blocking from sending messages? Is there a way that that can be done on a per person basis?

    I don’t know how to fix this. I blocked this user from my personal page. Yesterday I put up a fan page for my business and she messaged me on the fan page with abuse and threatened to destroy my coaching practice. I thought once I blocked her from my personal site, she wouldn’t show up on my fan page. Since she never liked my fan page, I can’t ban her from the site. Is there a way where she won’t have access to my fan page again?

    Hi Kim! I have a problem! I am unable to “X’ the person on the fan list, as we have almost 20K followers. And I am unable to find that particular person on the list. Is there another alternative?

    Thank you in advance!!

    On my fan page, can I search for a specific fan? I have thousands of fans and can’t scroll down enough to remove it. I even tried deleting some, but it still only lets me scroll so far down.
    I was hoping I can search thru the fans for a specific user, then remove them that way.
    Do you have any suggestions? Thanks

    I have someone that I blocked from my personal page that I did not know was commenting on my page until i visited it while I was not signed in. He does not show up when I look at the people that have liked my page. Im sure other people cam see his comments, how do I remove them when I can not see them when I sign in?

    I banned someone but he can still keep liking my page, I banned him so many times! How could I stop him?! I clicked ban permanently already but he still can come and like my page again!

  14. says

    Hi! I’ve followed the steps you told me to in the picture and it didn’t work, but I went to something else in the page and I found out how. But thanks though!

  15. Daniel says

    Is there a way to block someone from not just posting on but also block them from seeing a FB Fan Page. There is someone who is kind of stalking. She has been blocked from the personal page already. She has not liked the Fan Page to be able to be blocked like you explain above, but she is messaging through the Fan Page. She also is now using the Fan Page to find out where she can try and go to stalk. It is important to block her from even seeing the Fan Page. Hope you can help figure out how to do that. Thank you.

    I banned someone from my fan page successfully, so will they still get updates in their news feed when I post to my wall?

    Thank you
