If someone blocked me, would they see my post if their friend shared it?

How do I remove posts shared from my Facebook page?

As for removing posts that have been shared from your Facebook page, you cannot directly delete a specific post that someone else has shared. However, you can delete the original post from your page. To do this, go to the upper-right corner of the post, click on the three dots, select “Move to Trash” and confirm by clicking “Move.” Once the original post is removed, any reposts or shares of that content will become blank and won’t display your post anymore.

The reason you might not be able to see who shared your post on Facebook is due to the privacy settings of the person who shared it.

However, if the person who shared your post is not in your friends list on Facebook and their privacy settings are set to “friends only,” you may not be able to see their name in the share details. In such cases, the privacy settings of the person who shared the post restrict the visibility of their name to their friends only.
