A couple of quite techincal social media questions haha.
When one is initially blocked on Facebook, how is it that four to five days later their (blockers) picture reappears on messenger ?
Very strange...
Similarly with Instagram, if you've been taken off, then can see profile but not posts, and now can see all again ?
Always thought if you can't see any profile that means blocked

To answer your question ->

Correct, once someone is blocked they are still blocked however, their profile is just cached with that image so it shows up in the profile.No they cannot see anything, they wont be able to view the profile

But a few days after you've been blocked ? (and a blank photo during that time) I can't understand that

You mean this is someone you have blocked, correct?

Customer: replied 1 day ago.
No, actually I was blocked, an overreaction by a friend, I was unblocked too, but since the blocking (Thu) the messenger image was blank. Tonight his picture has reappeared on my messenger app, don't get that

Its just a cached image that shows up from the history
