Reddit revamps its block feature

Wednesday - January 19, 2022 4:27 pm , Category : SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY
San Francisco, Jan 19 (IANS) Social discussion forum Reddit has revamped its block feature so that it functions more like other social platforms.
With the change, blocking a user on Reddit will not just block that person's posts from your view, but will also prevent them from being able to see or interact with your posts, reports Engadget.
Until now, blocking on Reddit has been more like a "mute" feature in that it only worked one way.
Now, when someone who has been blocked encounters that user's posts or comments, the content will appear as if it was deleted.
Profiles will also be inaccessible after a user has been blocked. One exception is moderators, who will be able to view posts from users who blocked them if they appear in the subreddit they moderate.
On the other side, Reddit is changing up how blocked users' content appears for people who initiated the block to better protect against harassment.
Now, those who have blocked someone else will still be able to view their posts, though the content will appear collapsed by default.
Reddit said it is keeping these posts accessible so that users can still utilise the site's reporting features and track any potential harassment.
