Facebook has long been adamant about preventing cyberbullying, and the company announced recently that more controls are in place so teens can feel safer on the social network.
Don’t suffer another minute of annoyance: If you feel psychologically tortured by insensitive jerks while on Facebook, there are ways to nip their behavior in the bud.
Facebook is expanding options for reporting instances of abuse and bullying on the site.
Yesterday afternoon Facebook posted about more detailed abuse reporting features now being provided for users. Facebook wants to protect those users who experience or witness “bullying, harassment, unwanted contact or offensive behavior”. That’s why the company is rolling out much more granular reporting features. Users can select from “nudity or pornography, drug use, excessive gore or violence, attacks individual or group, advertisement or spam or infringes on your intellectual property” when reporting violating images.
