Reporting The Page:

It’s simple: the more reports come in; the more likelihood that Facebook will take a serious look at this page – maybe.  Facebook’s policy on these things seems a little – uh – inconsistent.

1) Visit the Page and click the little cog on the top right of the Page. Click “Report Page”.


2) Selection the option “I think it shouldn’t be on Facebook”, then click “Continue”


3) Selection the option “Hate Speech” and a new drop down box will appear

Select Hate\

4) Select “Targets a Race or Ethnicity” and click continue

Select Hate Speech

5) On the next screen TICK the box to report it to Facebook.

select OK to report hate page

If it  is NOT ticked, the report will cancel

Once you have ticked the box, click “Continue”.

6) A message titled “Thank You” and saying that your report has been received is the end of this process.

We Have Received Your Report

After your report is “Reviewed”

Shortly after, you will receive a notice that  the report had been reviewed.

If you click it (or navigate to your support dashboard) you will see the review. It will say “This page wasn’t removed” and that “We reviewed the page you reported for containing hate speech or symbols and found it doesn’t violate our Community Standards.

Good review 2

This is when you ask your friends report it as well. Please this briefing with them and ask them to help report the hate.

When you do this, please take a moment to explain why this is important. It’s people power that will make the difference.

You can also join our Facebook page, SHUT ERBL DOWN,  to follow our future work combating online hate.

What we see coming from Facebook is not satisfactory.  Hopefully at some point, they’ll start looking at enforcing their own Community Standards.
