How Facebook Processes Security-Related Reports
When I gave 3 reasons why Facebook is still safe and secured, one of those reasons is that they truly respond to security-related questions or those that involve life-threatening reports.
In a new blog post, Facebook staff have revealed which specific departments are involved in the flagging process and what happens when you’re done clicking and typing.
In an email to VentureBeat, a Facebook rep explained that:
“Facebook has dedicated teams working all day, every day to handle reports about policy violations, such as explicit photos, impostor accounts, or offensive content, etc.,”
“But what actually happens once a report gets filed isn’t always clear — this infographic … will be a guide to better understand how different situations are processed.”

So you may want to think again and be careful when leaving rude remarks or sharing contents that are spammy or threatening in nature on Facebook because it gets a fair amount of guidance from partners such as its LGBT-friendly Network of Support, the minors-focused Safety Advisory Board, and similar groups and organizations to keep it safe and secured.
