How to Unblock Social Media Contacts on Facebook and Instagram

Facebook and Instagram are currently two of the most visited social media platforms in the world. With over 1 billion active users on Facebook, it takes the No. 1 spot when it comes to the number of users. While there is an increasing number of individuals on these social media platforms, one thing is certain – there are often conflicts and disagreements.

Therefore, if you’ve ever blocked any of your social media contacts either on Facebook or Instagram, this piece will help show you how to unblock them.
