Unblock people on facebook
Every other day while going through my email i stumble upon a variation of the most prevalent reader question we usually receive here in this blog: I want to access Facebook at school but it seems they blocked it!!! It will be good if they unblock friends and unblock facebook pictures Any thoughts?
Why schools and workplaces has a clear interest in blocking Facebook, it’s completely understood. The thing is that our interest as Facebook enthusiasts is exactly the opposite.
We have two main ways to access a blocked website in essence:
We can use a free proxy website. In general the problem with web proxies is that they are low quality and/or spammy and tend to get blocked quite often by schools and enterprises.
Remote control a PC that has access to the blocked site (in this case Facebook).
Here are a few ways to how unblock people on facebook and unblock Facebook at school, for my readers:
On your home PC Install the Facebook Access at School application and promote it among your friends. The cool thing about this app, is that once installed it searches for accessible (non-blocked) proxies websites. Once in school, all you’ll need to do it contact a friend/family relative that has facebook access and runs this application and ask him to let you know the URLs of currently accessible proxies. Once you have the URL, access it via your school or workplace Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or other web browser and surf to Facebook. You can unblock facebook friends or unblock facebook pictures and you can add your friend
Try to unblock Facebook using a proxy website from this proxy list or you can unblock someone on facebook if you can’t get hold of any friend/family member,.
You can also try to remote control your home PC (that has access to Facebook) from school. You can use for this task a few free (or free to try) apps. I recommend to use Crossloop or Remote Admin as your remote control software. The main downside of this method are that somes schools and workplaces might not allow you to install the remote control software on their PCs and not allow unblocking someone on facebook, so this method won’t always be applicable.
