Reddit is Finally Letting You Block Other Users

One thing that emerged as a result of the advent of social media is that people started interacting with far more individuals than had ever been the case previously. This was great for a lot of obvious reasons, but it also caused problems in situations where you ended up interacting with someone or the other that was in any way hostile towards you. Social media sites attempted to fix this by giving you the option to block anyone that you don’t want to interact with.

Reddit is one of the biggest social media platforms in the world, but it operates somewhat differently from other media sites. For one thing, the block feature in Reddit is quite different from what other social media platforms tend to offer. Instead of preventing someone from interacting with you, it pretty much only just removes their posts from your feed so that you don’t come across them.

That was quite ineffective since plenty of users want to be able to block someone or the other for the purposes of escaping harassment. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that Reddit is now rolling out an update that would make its block feature a great deal more efficient at keeping you away from individuals that you find to be unseemly or aggressive beyond a reasonable measure of doubt.

Users that you block will now no longer be able to visit your Reddit profile. Instead, all of your content and your profile will look as though it has been removed from the platform entirely. This can give users a great deal more control over their Reddit experience and enable them to create a more wholesome environment although it might also facilitate the creation of ideological bubbles as has been seen on numerous other social media sites.
