Here’s some easy links and notes created as part of our Digital Reporting session with DigiEnable.
Reporting on Facebook/Twitter(X)/Instagram and other social media platforms
For each post on each platform you will see a three dots menu called a “burger menu” – these are usually in the top right hand corner of a post.
There are usually 3 different types of option…
Hide the content, but not report or block the creator
Report the content – and usually you have to give a reason why
Block the creator of the content (you can also Block creators of messages in each messaging app too)
Here’s a screenshot of some examples of (left to right) Facebook, Twitter(X) and Instagram menu options where the report features live.
