Just like everything else in this world, there’s always a twisted sort of balance between two things of an opposite/contradictory nature. Let’s take, for instance, the online and offline worlds. Although people want to bring out a victor between the two, the answer is simply that both have pros and cons. There are many distinctions between social media and real life. One of the most common statements you’ll hear on this topic is, “it’s easier to love offline, and to hate online.” While it might sound quite generic, there’s sound logic behind this assumption.
Think about it: loving offline is basically an indication of long-distance relationships. They are notoriously hard to maintain and take a lot of work. Even for those who seem to have way too much time in their lives, it’s not easy to be in a long-distance relationship. It’s painful, often unnecessarily so.
On the other hand, hating online is quite easy. Let’s say it’s a former acquaintance or a friend that you hate. It’s simple because you don’t have to see or be with them. Whenever you’re mad, you can just shoot however you’re feeling to them through a text.
If it’s a celebrity or public figure, it’s even easier since they’ll most probably never be able to see it either way. You can get over them peacefully without any unwanted run-ins and pointless arguments.
Another important factor the internet provides is maximum exposure with minimum risk. Those living in developing/undeveloped countries with little to no access to the rest of the world can speak about their struggles. Oppressed minorities can finally speak publicly without any risk of physical injury.
Today’s blog will discuss if a blocked person on Instagram can see your posts if you tag a mutual friend.
Can a Blocked Person See My Posts if i Tag a Mutual Friend on Instagram?
Instagram is one of the biggest platforms on the market today, and with good reason. It’s unacceptable for someone you’ve blocked to be able to see your post, regardless of who you tag. After all, won’t that defeat the whole point of blocking them?
No, a blocked user on Instagram cannot see your posts even if you tag a mutual friend in them. So, tag away without worry about this! Let’s first talk about how you can tag someone on an Instagram post. Although it might seem a bit tricky to new users, it’s a rather standard process.

Step 1: Open Instagram and tap on the icon at the bottom of the screen in the middle, which is a “+” sign.
Step 2: Select the photo/s you’d like to post and tap the blue arrow at the top right corner to proceed.
Step 3: Next, you can add a filter to your image to make it more enhanced. When you’re done, tap on that same arrow again.
