To prevent someone from mentioning you altogether on Facebook, you can add him to your block list, removing virtually all Facebook connections. Blocking is a mutual thing and, once initiated by one party, no further communication is possible, including tagging.
Who can see my mentions on Facebook?
This setting defaults to Friends, which means when you’re tagged in a post, you and your friends can see the post, even if they weren’t in the original audience. The post you’re tagged in may be shared with the original audience, as well as the friends you suggest.
Can my friends always see when I’m mentioned in a comment?
Anyone who can see the comment, can see your name—highlighted—when they read the comment. But only you get the notification that someone has mentioned you specifically. All anyone else sees is: “Such-a-group has a new post by such-a-person.” They don’t even see your name—until they read the comment.
Tap in the top right of Facebook.
- Scroll down and tap Settings.
- Scroll down to Privacy and tap Profile and tagging.
- Tap Who can see posts that you’re tagged in on your profile?
- Select the audience of people (such as Friends) who you’d like to be able to see the posts you’ve been tagged in.

Do mentions appear on Facebook timelines?
