Could somebody see an update of blocked friends in Kakaotalk ?
Recently I got question from my foreign readers for the feature on Kakaotalk. Actually she asks me the possibility to see the update of picture, status message of blocked friend.
This kind of question is frequently gotten from Korean users, too. This might mean that many Kakaotalk users block their friend after something goes wrong on their relationship.
Full question from my reader is as follows.
Somebody couldn't see an update for their blocked friend.
To answer this question , I tested this on my two Kakaotalk accounts, just A and B here. I put account B blocked in account A. Then blocked friend was immediately disappeared from friend lists having moved into the blocked friend list on account A.
I changed profile picture of account B which was blocked by account A, and monitors whether that change could be seen on account A.
My test results are saying that somebody could not see the update of blocked account.
Next image is for the blocked friend listing. It shows only picture of last moment for the blocked friend.
Unblocking and blocking makes update visible.
If account A release blocking for account B, then account A could see the current profile of account B. This means that somebody could see the update of blocked friend by unblocking/blocking process.
Therefore picuture and status message could be seen by others upon their decision.
Here is summary of blocking feature mentioned above.
Difference between blocking and unregistered on the chatting !
If somebody unregistered from Kakaotalk, then the invitation on chatting room is impossible. This means that successful invitation on chatting is just saying one is still Kakaotalk user.
So you don't need to worry about the ambiguity between blocking and unregistered.
Relationship is important and knowing of blocking condition on the SNS is mostly questioned. But the method introduced here could not be used for the proof of something.
I hope everybody is happy with their friend in the good relationship. Good day of all.
