Yes, it's called "blocking". Go to her profile page, click the three dots and select "block" from the bottom of the pull down menu. You won't be able to see any of her posts or comments and her profile will become invisible and unsearchable for you.

I don't think anyone could claim to have created a perma-block for a person. Maybe some insane AI program that tracks you as user profile, your geo data, and scrobbles the net to hide any content vaguely relating to them.

Even China has to employ people to censor the internet, and don't just rely on algorithms. And relating to this, isn't this kind of thing abused in any narrative of a futuristic fascist state?

I've been able to successfully avoid people on Facebook just by unfriending them, though I recently had to "unfollow" one user (a semi-professional folk band) who I'd never knowingly "followed." Before that they were clogging up my newsfeed with every little thing they were doing. Facebook does seem to play cupid sometimes, it recently "friended" me with an ex-partner I want nothing to do with, and I had to step in and switch it back myself.

Yeah, if you have 0 will power and you can't stop yourself from unblocking her as you said in your earlier post, delete your own FB account and do yourself a favor. unregistered users are locked out of view of FB accounts + FB is useless anyway, so that's a win win.
