Facebook Adds New Tools to Protect People from Bullying and Harassment


Facebook is introducing new tools and programs so people can better control offensive or hurtful experiences on Facebook.

The company is introducing a way for people to hide or delete multiple comments at once from the options menu of their post. This feature is rolling out on desktop and Android and will be available on iOS in the coming months. Facebook is also testing ways to more easily search for and block offensive words from appearing in comments.

If you see a friend or family member being bullied or harassed, now you can report someone on their behalf via the menu above the post that you are concerned about. Once reported, Facebook's Community Operations team will review the post, keep your report anonymous, and determine whether it violates our Community Standards.

Earlier this year Facebook announced a process that allows people to request another review of their photo, video or post that has been taken down for violating our Community Standards for nudity, sexual activity, hate speech or graphic violence. The company has now extended these reviews to bullying and harassment violations - this means that if your content has been taken down for bullying or harassment, you will have the opportunity to request another review. And if you've reported a piece of content for bullying or harassment, and Facebook don't take it down after our initial review, you'll soon be able to ask for a second review .

In the coming weeks, Facebook will expand its policies to better protect public figures against harassment regardless of age. For example, severe attacks that directly engage a public figure will not be allowed under the new policy. If anyone experiences unwanted behavior on Facebook, they can report the person who is bullying or harassing them, anonymously ignore unwanted messages, and block someone without them being notified.
