Have you ever reported content on Facebook as “abusive?” Have you ever wondered just what happens. Facebook has opened the door a bit to let users see inside, in a report they issued on June 19th.
Basically, there are four abuse teams working different issues. The Safety Team focuses on violent and harmful behavior by it’s members. The Hate and Harassment Team specialize in dealing with abusive speech. The Abusive Content Team troubleshoots spamming, Facebook scams, and sexual content. The Access Team handles account hijacking or impersonation issues for Facebook users. These teams are available 24/7/365 and are located in the United States, India, and Ireland. Facebook says most complaints are handled within 72 hours.
So if someone is bothering you via Facebook, or has hijacked your account, or is sending spam and scams your way, there is something you can do about it by reporting the abuse to Facebook. Since Facebook users spend, on average 6.75 hours per month on the site, it is important that Facebook is taking these steps to protect it’s user base.Share
