Community chats are chats created specifically for Facebook groups. Note that they are not available to all groups (example: commerce groups) or people at this time.
If you believe a community chat or content sent in a community chat doesn’t follow our Community Standards or the group rules, you can report it to the group admins. You can also report to Facebook.
If you report to the group admins, they will receive a notification that there's something to review. Groups won't be disabled just because members report a community chat or community chat content to admins or to Facebook. However, Facebook may disable a group if there are sufficient multiple admin and moderator violations, which includes if an admin creates a community chat or content in a community chat that violates our Community Standards.
Note: When you report content to Facebook, recent messages in the chat will also be shared for review. This can include messages that have been unsent by members or removed by admins.
