Facebook Makes It Easier to Report Abusive Messenger Conversations
Facebook has rolled out a change to Messenger that simplifies the process of reporting abusive conversations. Before today, the process involved using Facebook or Messenger on the web. Moving forward, the reporting tool can be accessed from within the Android and iOS Messenger mobile apps. Facebook says people need one tap the name of the person or group they'd like to report, scroll to the "Something's Wrong" option, and select from sub-categories, such as hate speech or harassment. As always, people can ignore or block those they are reporting. After completing a report, Facebook will confirm the report was received. Facebook encourages people to use these reporting tools in order to help keep the community safe.
