Meta reviews up to 30 of the most recent messages sent in a conversation reported by an account. These reported messages may also be used to help us improve our systems for reviewing other reported content that may go against our standards.
Remember that not everything that may be upsetting violates our standards. Things that go against our standards include:
  • Bullying or harassment: content that appears to purposefully target a person with the intention of degrading or shaming them, or repeatedly contacting a person despite that person’s clear desire and action to prevent contact.
  • Impersonation: accounts that pretend to be you or someone else.
  • Direct threats: serious threats of harm to public and personal safety, credible threats of physical harm, specific threats of theft, vandalism or other financial harm.
  • Sexual violence and exploitation: content that threatens or promotes sexual violence or exploitation, including solicitation of sexual material, any sexual content involving minors, threats to share intimate images and offers of sexual services.
Note: A report won't be created for technical problems and fake news categories.
