We all have sometimes or the other come across situations wherein we see someone’s profile as being a blank Facebook profile, even though we’ve just messaged the person at the other end. In these cases, you’ll end up wondering, Will I ever see this person again? Are they facing network issues while browsing? Is this just a minor technical glitch? I too have faced this situation quite a few times so I know the thought process that we all go through in this kind of a situation. Nevertheless, you need not worry because herein we will be discussing the same, Blank Profile Picture Facebook.
Why? Blank Profile Picture Facebook
Cause #1 —- You’ve been blocked
When someone blocks you on Facebook, you will not see their social media profile. Also, you won’t see any posts of theirs after you are blocked. This behavior is analogous to what you see when someone blocks you on Instagram or for that matter any other social media platform, including even WhatsApp.
But to work out whether this is the actual case, you’ll need to search for other clues. Here are a few:
- Open a one-to-one chat you’ve had thereupon person.
- In case you can’t visit the profile by clicking on it, but still can see their picture it still implies that you are blocked.
- No profile photo within the chat implies that you are block.
- Also, you won’t be ready to send them a message.
Ask your friend
- Ask your friend to go to the profile in question.
- If they will see the picture and you still don’t, means you possibly are block.
- Start a search.
- Enter their name within the search bar.
- If you’ve been blocked, you either won’t find the person in the least or won’t be ready to visit their profile by clicking the result.
- You won’t see the name of the one that blocked you
- If you see the message, “Sorry, this content isn’t available immediately,” the person may have blocked you or deactivated their account.
Cause #2 —- Supposedly, the Profile in Question is Private
If any user wishes, then they can make their profile posts, friends lists, and private info invisible to everyone but their friends. If they need to be extremely private, they will even make this stuff visible to just some friends or themselves.
How do you verify if it is private?
Just visit their profile, if you don’t find any relevant information on their page. It simply means their account is private.
Cause #3 —- Browser/App Malfunction
You are seeing a blank profile picture on Facebook can be a result of your app or browser malfunctioning also. Therefore, in case, you are browsing using your browser then change to the app and see if it works and vice-versa. If both these cases fail, then, possibly someone has been blocking you.
Cause #4 —- Supposedly, the Account in Question is Deactivated
We get to see blank profile pictures also in case, a person has deactivated their account. Just to confirm, you can ask your friend to check for the afore-mentioned profile and if they also are not able to see then, probably the account in question is deactivated.
Some other signs that an account has become inactive are :
Search Your Friends List
If your friend deactivated their account (but didn’t unfriend you first), they’ll still show abreast of your Friends list. to look at your Friends list:
- Go to your Profile.
- Select Friends.
- Click the search icon.
- Type the person’s name.
- If their profile shows up with a proper picture then it’s good. But, if it is not visible, then it is possible that the account is inactive.
- Also, if you click their name and obtain this message, they’ve deactivated their account:
Why is my friend’s Facebook page blank?
If your friend blocked you or deactivated their account, you won’t be ready to see their Facebook page. They’ll even have set their account to non-public or manually made it more anonymous. And in fact, there’s always the likelihood that your app or browser is malfunctioning.
