One of the features users love about Facebook is the ability to join groups. Facebook groups allow people with similar interest to connect, share information, and enjoy interaction on a topic they're passionate about; however, there are times when a Facebook group may include information that is abusive or offensive. How do you report a Facebook group? You can report a group by contacting customer service here, or you can follow these steps to report the group from your Facebook page.
First, it's important to recognize just because you don't like something a group posts doesn't mean it will automatically be deleted or closed by Facebook. Facebook has guidelines that cover what is and isn't acceptable on the platform called "Community Standards." The following types of posts or photos go against Facebook Community Standards:
If you come across a group that you feel violates Facebook Community Standards, you can report that group by taking the following steps:
After you've made your report, Facebook will review the content and see if it does or doesn't violate community standards. Facebook will then send a message to your Support Inbox with the decision made and what action (if any) was taken.
Reporting a group to Facebook is not a complicated process. The ability to make a report of potentially harmful or offensive content is one way Facebook works to keep users safe and happy while using the platform. For more information on reporting groups, contact customer service here.

GetHuman has been working for over 10 years on sourcing information about big organizations like Facebook in order to help customers resolve customer service issues faster. We started with contact information and fastest ways to reach a human at big companies. Particularly ones with slow or complicated IVR or phone menu systems. Or companies that have self-serve help forums instead of a customer service department.
