There are several ways you can report content on Facebook:
Click on the "X" in the upper-right corner of the post or comment. This will close the window showing more comments for that page. Clicking this button once closes all windows displaying comments for that page. Clicking this button again will reopen any closed windows.
On a mobile device, tap on the menu icon (three lines) in the top-right corner of the screen, then scroll down to find Report Abuse. Tap on this to report the post or comment.
You can also use the "Report abuse" feature within Facebook's privacy settings.
Go to facebook.com/settings. In the left-hand column, click on Privacy Settings. Under Safety, click on Report Abuse. Do not use this option if you're not comfortable reporting the content yourself. A member of Facebook's staff will need to confirm your report by clicking Confirm.
If you choose to report the post to an admin, the admin will be notified. Admins have the option of removing the post or blocking the individual who shared it. Reporting a post to an admin does not result in a report being sent to Facebook. The company says it uses "a variety of methods" to detect abuse, including monitoring reports sent by users and staff at its Illinois headquarters.
You have no way of knowing who reported you to Facebook. Facebook maintains this information private because it may cause problems if you knew who reported you. However, your reporter may be able to see that you were reported on Facebook, so don't post any personally identifiable information.
Vicki U. has a question: Hello, Rick. I'd want to ask you a question about Facebook reporting. I was hoping you could help me resolve a major conflict between two of my pals. One of them believes that if your account is reported by another user, Facebook will notify you of the individual who reported you. Is this true?
Here's what happened: My friend Joe decided to report my other friend Vicki's account for "inappropriate content." He told Vicki about it first, but when she protested, he took down the report himself. A few days later, Vicki asked me why her account had been reported. I told her it must have been because of the "inappropriate content" allegation. However, after talking with Joe, we realized he didn't mean that. He meant that someone had posted an image of a gun on Vicki's page!
Vicki deleted the picture and told Joe so, but he still wanted to report her account. Why would he do that if he didn't think Facebook would take action? As far as I know, neither Vicki nor anyone else on Facebook was notified that her account had been reported. And now they're friends again, which means we can't be sure what might have happened had Joe reported her himself.
In conclusion, if Joe had reported Vicki's account, then Facebook would have notified her of it.
