Whenever you are on a social site, and you someone makes you feel uncomfortable, Report Abuse! Though the abuse report will not help you in every instance, it will make the community better for everyone. Reporting Abuse allows web administrators to block abusive accounts and prevent them from bothering others. It will also build a history on the abusive account. The site’s admins will investigate it, and possibly remove the user. Remember, if you sense any threat of physical danger, you need to call the police immediately.
Here are some activities that you should report:
- Threat of Violence or Suicide – Did you see someone threaten themselves or others? Report it immediately.
- Depictions of Violence – Is someone posting graphically violent pictures or describing violent situations?
- Predator Alert – Do you think someone is behaving like a predator?
- Child Pornography – Did you see an inappropriate picture of a minor?
- Sexually Explicit Material/Nudity – Did you notice something that isn’t PG-13?
- Phishing Attack/Identity Theft / Spam – Do you think someone stole someone else’s pictures? Is an account trying to collect other members’ personal information or spamming them?
- Cyberbullying or Harassment – Is someone bullying someone else or using vulgar or offensive language?
- User Under the Age of 13 – Did you see a person who is 12 or younger that is pretending to be older to be allowed on the site?
- Someone not the age they are stating – Did you see someone who isn’t the age they have stated on their profile?
- Virus/Malware – Did someone post something that could harm another users’ computer?
- Advertising – Did someone post inappropriate advertisements on their page?
