Facebook has four teams who deal with abuse reports on the social network.

The Safety Team deals with violent and harmful behaviour, Hate and Harrassment tackle hate speech, the Abusive Content Team handle scams, spam and sexually explicit content, and finally the Access Team assist users when their accounts are hacked or impersonated by imposters.

Hackers seize control of the webcam remotely – recording potentially embarrassing footage of the victim watching adult content online.

The cybercriminals demand a ransom, threatening to release the footage online for everyone to see if their demands are not met.

Of course, you shouldn’t forget that just because there’s content that you might feel is abusive or offensive that Facebook’s team will agree with you.

As Facebook explains: Because of the diversity of our community, it's possible that something could be disagreeable or disturbing to you without meeting the criteria for being removed or blocked.

We would be interested in hearing about your experiences when you report abusive content to Facebook.
