What Happens When I Report a Post on Facebook?
Facebook have produced this snazzy new flyer which outlines what happens when you report a post on the popular social networking site.
At Webwise, we encourage you to teach young people the importance of reporting things online which they feel uncomfortable about.
Whether it be scam merchants, potential predators, cyberbullying, illegal content, pornography or any other threatening or abusive posts, young people can get posts removed by reporting the material to Facebook, and other sites they frequent.

This graphic, which you can get a close-up of by clicking on the image at the top of the page, gives you some idea of where each report goes on Facebook.
Eventually, as the flyer shows, reporting a post can lead to law enforcement officials.
It could provide an interesting tool for an ICT-related class for a teacher or for parents who want to sit down with their child to promote reporting.
