Facebook is an efficient social media platform where you connect with family, friends and share information. Given certain events, you may come across content that goes against Facebook’s community standards such as nudity, hate speech, violence, private chat/messages abuse or bullying. Facebook provides a means of reporting such incidents.

How to Report Abusive Content on Facebook

*            When logged in to your Facebook account, proceed to the ellipsis at the top right of the abusive content posted (post, photo or comment) and select the option “Give feedback on this post”.

*            Select the category of abuse and submit.

*         You can also avoid content on Facebook that is not appealing or falls under the abusive category by hiding the post, snoozing the post or unfollowing the given user account. You may also remove tags from which you have been tagged and delete posts or comments other users leave on your profile.

*                 Given you want to report something that goes against Facebook’s community standards but you don't have an account or can't see the content, say someone blocked you, you may need to ask a friend with an account to report the content using the report link (ellipsis) near the post, photo or comment.

*                 Remember that you should contact local law enforcement and the National KE-CIRT/CC in cases of criminal offenses such as child online abuse, hate speech, incitement to violence, impersonation, online fraud, copyright infringement, among others on Facebook.
