    I went into Settings and clicked on Blocking, but I can't see a space bar to type in.

    It should say in the bar type a name or email address then the block button is to the right of that bar ...... but hit search rather than hitting the block button

    I've just done this. There were about 15 or so strange names on there, people I've never heard of and most of them were foreign, they are now all blocked. I wonder why on earth they were following me, I rarely post so my fb is really, really boring. Also tightened up on the settings

    I'm being really dense now.

    Can you tell me exactly what you did please? I can't see a Search option.

    I clicked on the return key on my iPad, don't know what you are using laptop? PC? Anyway, just try putting in following me in the box and hit return on your keyboard

    Are you on a tablet/ pc? Not sure if it would be the same on iPhone.
    So when you are in the Facebook page in the top right hand corner next to your name there is a little chevron pointing down. Expand that and go to settings then once in settings there is a red no entry sign and says blocking tap that option. Once in there therefore should see something like this 88730C9E-1C4A-4C76-AC79-D92E010DBCDB.jpeg

    Then type in following me in the bar above all the peoples names and below the writing then tap search

    This is actually a hoax, see Snopes page detailing it here.

    Facebook notifies you when someone has chosen to follow you, so you can see who the new follower is by clicking on their profile. This is now mostly reserved for people with lots of friends, or 'like' pages.

    If your privacy is on lock down, no one can see anything unless your settings allow it. For example, I have all my privacy settings to 'Friends only' which means if you went onto my profile you would see very little beyond the posts I've chosen to share to 'Everyone'. My most recent post to 'Everyone' is asking if an artist wants to work with me from 30th January. My actual most recent post is a picture of some gifts my friend bought back from Gambia, but as it's shared to 'Friends only', only my friends can see it.
