There are all types of people out there, and many of them have Facebook pages. Though using Facebook is a positive experience for most, there have been news reports about people who are bullied or offended while using the social networking site. Facebook does not support offensive behaviour, and they need to know if someone is breaking rules. If someone has offended or disturbed you, there are multiple ways to report them to Facebook administrators.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Report the profile of an offensive individual by scrolling to the bottom of their page and click "Report/Block This Person."

  2. 2

    Report an offensive photograph from someone page by opening the image and clicking "Report the Photo" from the bottom left corner of the page.

  3. 3

    Report an offensive or threatening message by opening the message and clicking "Report." You will not be able to report a message from someone who is your friend.

  4. 4

    Report a Facebook group by visiting the group's wall and clicking "Report Group" from the bottom of the page.

  5. 5

    Report an event that offends you by visiting the event page and clicking "Report Event."

  6. 6

    Report any other Facebook page by clicking "Report Page" from the "Likes List" at the bottom of the page.

  7. 7

    Report an offensive or abusive post by clicking the "X" at the top right and clicking "Report as Abuse."
