facebook logo 300x225 Reference: How to Contact Facebook (90+ Ways)

I’m constantly looking up ways to contact Facebook, either for my own needs or for my readers. I figured it was time to create my own master list.

As you’ve probably figured out by now, it’s not easy to find out how to contact Facebook about your specific problem. I always start in the Help Center and then typically proceed to Something’s Not Working.

From there, sometimes Facebook gives you a form you can fill out to contact them about your specific problem. More often than not, though, they send you on a scavenger hunt.

One of my favorite Facebook people is Mari Smith. She is an invaluable resource for all things Facebook. Mari created a list of ways to contact Facebook a couple of years ago, and I often refer to it.

But I decided to create my own list now. There are bound to be commonalities between the two lists, but hopefully with my fresh dive into the Help Center, I can add some value to her contributions.

The list below is the result of my four hour scavenger hunt. If there is anything missing, please let me know!

  • Zendream79

    I can not get into my Facebook.  Every time I post anything it jumps me back to the page: You must log in.  I log in, check the box to save my password, go back in to FB, try to comment or add photos or ANYTHING and it jumps me right back out to the page: You must LOG IN!!  I’ve done it now 20 times.  It won’t let me in!

  • Pumpkinorchard

    As a business who advertises on facebook (and spends $50k+ a year with them), it’s amazing to me that they refuse to speak to me “live” about a billing discrepancy. I’ve had a string of 20+ emails with their billing department, but the best they can do is “assure” me that their billing is correct. I was given a phone number from Bank of America for their billing department, and, funny, it rings about 20 times and then goes to a fast busy. I would think there would be some level of customer service, but apparently they are big enough not to care about it.

  • Darese

    My 3 year has an account and I need it closed. But the information needed to track it on line (such as url) has been hidden from the public, the ages to choose from are 9,10,11 or above, which is neither, in order to report. I’ve gone ahead and reported it under false account. I hope facebook reads and listens to our “report”. ~Sad Mommy

  • Christine

    I am concerned about choices my teenager son is making. He has taken me off his friends list and I am ok with that so he feels free to post the true about his activity, but I was told I can contact facebook about being able to view his account since I am his parent and he is under 18. How do I do that?

    I cannot find how to contact Facebook when a developer has a game app out there that is cheating people out of money.

  • Andre King

    I’ve had my account for a little more than an hour and, even though I haven’t sent any messages (tried to comment on a couple of things and was blocked) or spam, some of my account features have been blocked; in addition, I’ve been blocked from making friend-requests for 14 days even though I haven’t made any friend requests; it’s painfully obvious that Facebook as at least one of two problems: either they have viruses that have lied about my activity or Facebook has fascist policies; I can see blocking for making too many friend requests, but none whatsoever? Blocking account features for sending spam even though I haven’t sent any? Come on, Mark Zuckerberg! Stop fooling around with Facebook’s stock prices and take care of business with the platform itself! Bad, Mark, really bad! :(

  • Bob Staples

    I have the same problem as Andre King. I’m blocked from commenting, messaging for “abuse”. Thing is, I only make about 1 comment a month on fb and they are birthday wishes to family and friends. The most frustrating thing is not being able to get to anyone to fix the erroneous block at fb. Andre, I feel your frustration man.

    • Tifani

      This has happened to me! I was falsely accused of spamming…what can I do?

  • Patrick King

    For the last month a group of people on the page Justice for Darlie Routier have had me blocked repeatedly by Facebook for things that in no way violate Facebook policy.
    How does the content infringe/violate your rights?: I am not able to interact with my friends or otherwise communicate with the Facebook community while I am blocked. There seems to be no human appeal for this kind of block. If a person will read the content for which I am blocked they will immediately see it does not violate Facebook protocol or anyone else’s either. I was blocked first for 3 days, then for 7 days, now for 30 days. I have not committed any offense except in not agreeing with a couple of users about the death penalty.
    Contact Information: I am the rights holder, reporting on my own behalf.

  • Rose

    How do we contact to complain about this awful timeline they are forcing on us? I haven’t met anyone who likes it – don’t want it, don’t like it, don’t need it!

  • Jose

    My former staff created an email account to sign in Facebook. After a long time no log in email and Facebook page, she forgot them all. A problem here is Facebook username is my company name. I can’t create a new page because it will make our consumers confused. I would like to know how can I contact to Facebook directly to have their support. Noted that I can’t contact 3 members in friend list to have their support as I don’t know anyone in the list. Many thanks to have your suggestion

  • andrew

    how do i actually report violation on fan page cover photo. as i come across page that asking ppl to like on their cover photo

  • Sally Burnell

    Yes, you have NO information on what to do if you suddenly find yourself unable tp post for 15 days because someone reported a post of yours as spam. I can’t seem to find out who reported me or why and how to reinstate my posting privileges, and who to contact regarding that. I have tried every address in the book: [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], and every single time I get an automated response referring me to their HELP pages, but those are of NO help because I can find NO information on how to reinstate my privileges. So how do I fix this problem since obviously NOBODY at Facebook reads the e-mails that they get from users anymore? HELP!!!!

    I am attempting to change my name on my page, I can change it but I can’t save it?

  • Bob O’Neil

    Looks like you have everything covered but the one thing I need. They have put a 3 day block on my account for violating one of their nebulous terms of service. they removed an innocuous comment I posted and notified me of the block with no explanation of which one of their rules I have broken or why my comment was in violation. Apparently there is no appeal process. At least I can’t find one. Shouldn’t there be some type of a form to fill out to try to get the ban lifted? Any help would be appreciated.

  • Bella

    A couple nights ago my Facebook account was hacked into and the password was changed and they also changed my Hotmail password. My friend eventually got me the account back but I wasn’t too sure if I would right then and there so I reported it because they were sending inboxes to my friends that could have caused a serious
    It has so much on it, too many photos, too many friends, so many inboxes that I needed.
    I don’t know how to get my Facebook back but I’ve had it for too many years to lose it.
    Anyone get any ideas?

  • Lewis Simpson

    I am filling a legal action of harassment against a former contact on Facebook and the police and lawyers need to access deleted messages that, in a state of panic, I removed from my archive.

    All of the FB forms offer no help and I can’t speak to, or contact, anyone directly.

    Please help me.

  • Odera Godhaswrittenit Adigwe

    I have been looking for a medium to write directly to facebook for quite some time. I understand this isnt really the forum for this but I couldnt find anyway to contact facebook. Long story short I am the admin of a page on Facebook called The Walking Dead memes. We have over 44,000 likes recently a hate page had emerged bashing our page as well as some of the admins on it. Recently they discovered my personal account Odera Chinedu Adigwe and have been sending me vulgar harrassing messages. I have been trying to get the page banned for days but to no avail. I recently took an excerpt from on of the messages I received and posted it WITH quotations saying verbatim this is what I received in my inbox hopefully prompting more people to report the page. However it appears that for some reason Facebook mistaked this as me using this language and has banned me from posting for 3 days. This seems extremely unfair I was in no way trying to violate a rule just showing content I received to others to get the real culprit banned. I still have the message in my inbox for them to see. Plz Id like to resolve this issue being able to post to my friends and on my increasingly popular page is very important to me. Also im not sure but if any of my other admins were affected Id like this situation resolved for them as they were not even involved.

  • Brett McGinnis

    Is it possible to take an existing business page and convert it to a business account removing all personal admins? Thanks

  • Trisha Lewis

    I have a problem which is not covered by any list of questions including yours, this is very frustrating as I need to contact FB. The problem is I had a message recently saying they would suspend my account if I kept sending friend requests to people I dont know, but I have to in order to play Farmville, this also applies to millions of other farmville and games players. It cant be played with only the people you personally know, they probably wont be players themselves. But I can find no category to cover this, and without a category I cant contact them. I need to ask them to realise that games players have to send friend requests to people they dont know.

  • suziesue

    We employed someone to look after our facebook page for our business and now they have taken control of it and we can not access it any more….any ideas?

    Your ads account has recently been flagged because of unusual activity. For security reasons, any ads you’re running will be paused until you can confirm your account information by contacting Facebook. ***

  • Howard Letch

    Some words of WARNING!! Be careful over infringement of copyright whilst posting videos. Facebook will block you for up to 6 months from uploading any videos! NOW: If you manage a number of other pages for clubs, groups, or companies: THESE PAGES WILL ALSO BE BANNED FROM UPLOADING VIDEO!!! This is totally unfair of course but Facebook does as Facebook does. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!

  • Becky Noble

    I need help contacting Facebook to report many family members harassing me on my Facebook page. These messages are through private messages and posts on they’re Facebook pages. These people turned me for harassing when in fact they were afraid I would get there first and turn them all in. I need help turning they’re names in. They all have been blocked but have more than 1 account. Is there anything I can do further to stop this stressful situation? Please help.

  • Karen

    How do you report someone (who I’ve already blocked within FB) who has been harassing me via comment boards *off* Facebook? Have reported him to the mods at these comment boards, and it did stop for a bit, but he keeps coming back.

  • Cheri Brockett

    yes being blocked for too many codes to reset my password when i put the one in they sent me they said it was incorrect

  • kate

    ok, so i have a code generator. I broke my phone, so facebook is my only form of contact. Unfortunaltly Since my phone is broken I can’t see the coed. So i hit the don’t have my phone button. And they said they would send me a link in my email. Unfortunaltly, when i made the account I was in school, and now have no acess to that email address. So in order to change the email I have to change the password. So I reset my password. And now I have a 24 hour hold on my account becauce i reset my password. I resert my password because i needed a form of contact immediatly because i have no phone and now I’m really screwed because I have no phone or facebook and no point of contact. ALL I want to do, is tell someone so they can lift the hold. Or a live chat. So how exactly would you fix this situation???

  • Stephen

    We have a page for our business, and we pay Facebook for advertising. Somehow a “Place” of our business has been created. We have no cotrol over this “place” facebook page. We want this deleted. It distracts from efforts to direct people to our legitamate page. Erroneous and liabilous statements can be made that is harmful yet we can do nothing. Facebook has not responded to us for a year.

  • Dondi Thompson

    I’m not really sure how this happened Jon, but my home location is being categorized as a business and I’m having issues trying to get this fixed so I can claim the page. Do you have any suggestions on how to contact Facebook with this issue? I’ve already been on the scavenger hunt you spoke of above and never received a reply. I’d appreciate any assistance.

  • Valerie reel

    Being blocked for something you didn’t do. And for jumping through hoops doing what they told you to still be blocked and not have violated the issue they throw at you.

  • Sarah

    Just would like to contact facebook directly for some information, do they have an email address?

    I can not post, comment, like, or send messages. It says “For security reasons, your account has limited access to the site for a few days. If you have any questions, please contact our Help Center.If you think you’re seeing this by mistake, please let us know.” I’ve gotten no reply from any of the links you shard :(

  • Regina

    I got blocked by facebook , it says for security reasons your account has limited access to the site for a few days . I sent 4 messages to the help desk. I don`t even know why, I did not do anything wrong, have no clue why this happened. no explanation, I don`t know who to contact, to get answers, what I did , for how long this will go on… is very sad :-(

    How can one contact FB without going through their profile to do so? I have a couple of inquiries that hope to have answered – but use a registered DBA as my identity and do not want FB to delete my profile because of that.
