Facebook wants to help you find support and take action if you need to Report Facebook Offensive Contents. Facebook worked with the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative and ConnectSafely.org on this list of things you can do and organizations you can get in touch with for support and advice.
What to do first
If you’re under 18
Where to find additional support
What you can do next
If someone is threatening to share things that you want to keep private, asking you to send them money or anything else, you have options:
Document the post: You may need a record of the post if you decide to take further action.
Report this to local law enforcement agency.
Report this to Facebook. Sharing or threatening to share intimate images goes against our Community Standards. If someone is threatening to share things that you want to keep private (e.g. text, pictures, videos), asking you to send money or asking you to do something else that you’re painful with, please report this to Facebook.
Block this person. Depending on your privacy settings, people on Facebook can see a list of your Facebook friends. Once you block someone, they no longer have access to your friend list and won’t be able to start conversations with you or see things that you post on your profile.
Remember that if somebody asks you to share something you’re not relaxed with, you have the right to say no.
If you’re below 18
If you’re below 18, we also recommend talking to a parent or other adult you trust to help you think through what to do. You can also talk to a school counselor or administrator who you feel comfortable with.
Where to find additional support
If you, or a friend, are being harassed or harmed online, these organizations should be able to provide support. Many of them offer resources and support specifically for situations when intimate images have been shared without permission. If you’re troubled about a friend, please encourage them to contact the organization directly as well.
If you or friends are having feelings about suicide or self-injury, please contact local emergency services or a suicide helpline instead.

What you can do subsequent
To Report Facebook Offensive Contents, Contact an emergency helpline or chat service. These can be found all over the US and in many other countries. This is a good option if you want to remain unidentified while deciding what to do. The emergency helpline can also often refer you to a victim advocate or other legal adviser close to you.
Communicate to a victim advocate or social worker in your town or city. In the US, there are victim advocates in county offices, police stations, domestic violence prevention centers, rape crisis centers, police offices, and offices of state attorneys general. Victim advocates can help you collect evidence, work out how to keep you safe, and get a civil protection or anti-stalking order against the person intimidating you. If you’re in the US, call the National Organization for Victim Assistance at 1-800-TRY-NOVA/800-879-6682 or go to www.trynova.org/.
To Report Facebook Offensive Contents, Contact a legal aid society or organization near you for free advice.
