  1. Abuse can be reported by e-mailing Facebook directly at privacy@facebook.com. There is also a link provided under the security page of Facebook. The security page link is: www.facebook.com/help.php#cat25. Scroll down to the security section and click on the link to report abuse.
  2. If someone is harassing/libeling you, Facebook gives the following recommendations:
    “We suggest that you block the person by listing his or her name in the "Blocking People" box at the bottom of the My Privacy page. If this does not resolve the problem, please write an email to info@facebook.com from your login email address. We will need to know your name, login email address, and school. Also, please provide the name and school of the person who is harassing you along with a description of the situation.”
  3. Use the e-mail info@facebook.com to report any other information that you think should not be posted.
