The Facebook system to report problematic posts continues to grow and get more elaborate.
With the arrival of the ability to report certain new types of postings – including aggressive ones or crime related ones – perhaps we should take a look at what happens when you hit that report button.
But first, lets look at the button itself…
There are two primary locations you can report content from:
In an email to VentureBeat, a Facebook rep explained that:
“Facebook has dedicated teams working all day, every day to handle reports about policy violations, such as explicit photos, impostor accounts, or offensive content, etc.,”
But what channels do these reports go through after you select the confirm or submit button?
What protocol does Facebook have in place to deal with these.
Facebook has released a new chart that reveals just that!
Wow what a chart! Did you notice the law enforcement channel in there for posts where violence, harm or other acts may require intervention?
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to receive these? In an interesting blog post by a Facebook staff member about what it’s like to receive those reports and how they are handled.
I use FBPurity to help minimize the amount of crap that shows up in my newsfeed too. Give it a try, you’ll like it!
Have you ever had to report yucky content in your Facebook news feed?
