How to report a Facebook comment

Step 1

  • Hover the mouse cursor over the comment to show a cross in the top right corner.

  • Click the cross to hide the comment.

Step 2

  • Once the comment has been hidden, click Report.

Step 3

  • Select whether the comment is personal, or against another entity; in this case select No, this is about something else, then click Continue.

Step 4

  • Select the type of offense; in this case Itís hate speech, then click Continue.

Step 5

  • Select the target of the offense; in this case A religious group, then click Continue.

After clicking Continue there is still one more step in registering your complaint with Facebook.

Before Facebook accepts a report, it presents an additional dialogue encouraging other options.

Do not attempt to message the person who uploaded the content!.

If the content was posted with the intention to offend (as is often the case when dealing with internet 'trolls'), and the offending party is engaged in direct communication, then complaining to them may result in you being targeted for more personal harassment!

Step 6

  • Click Submit to Facebook for Review, then click Done.

Step 7

  • Once the report has been submitted you can click Done to close the reporting interface.

Don't Forget!

  • Remember to add your reported item to so we can monitor the time taken by Facebook to remove the content.

  • You can find the links to your reported items on Facebook from the Support Inbox.
