Question from Vicki: Hi, Rick. I have a question re: Facebook Reporting.
I was wondering if you could clear up a big disagreement between two of my friends?
One of them believes if your account is reported by another user Facebook tell you who reported you. The other one disagrees.
Personally, I don’t believe they will because I’ve reported lots of people and no one has ever complained to me about it.
Can you clear this up once and for all?
Rick’s answer: There really isn’t a lot of clearing up to do, Vicki.
Facebook is very clear about all reports being and remaining anonymous. Here is an excerpt from the Facebook Help page on this very topic:
“When something gets reported to Facebook, we’ll review it and take action on anything we determine doesn’t follow our Community Standards. Unless you’re reporting an incident of intellectual property infringement, your report will be kept confidential and the account you reported won’t see who reported them.”
I don’t see how it can be any more clear than that.
I recommend that you send that link to both of your friends so they can stop arguing (and putting you in the middle of it).
I hope this helps, Vicki. Good luck!
