It can be tougher than you’d think to contact Facebook by phone. Fortunately, there are other ways to get in touch with the Facebook Help Center that may be a bit more successful. From automated help menus to speaking with representatives, we’ll take you through the Facebook customer service options.

Is Facebook Customer Service Good?

Facebook is a large company with a well-known, heavily used app. You’d be right to think that customer service is a large part of what the company does, but it can be frustrating to contact Facebook if you don’t know the right channels to use. Facebook Help Center features heavily in reviews left online about the company.

In her video review, one user explains how she got caught in a Facebook scam. A scammer, posing as a friend, convinced her to send funds and her personal information to take control of her account and scam others using her account. Among her Facebook complaints, the reviewer notes that she clicked on the security links sent by Facebook and found them expired.

She then tried to call Facebook support “was told to resend my ID, which I did and STILL NOTHING WAS DONE!!” At the time of writing, her issue with Facebook customer service is still unresolved.

Another reviewer (#4080988) recently posted that her Facebook account has been hijacked by someone who now has access to her son’s pictures. She claims that the hacker is “putting my family in jeopardy.” 

She hopes that Facebook customer support can find the person who took over the account and get her “account back to its rightful owner.” She ends her review by stating that if customer service can’t do that, they are “not doing your job.

This reviewer is hoping that Facebook support comes through for her and her family’s safety. However, the sheer volume of complaints on PissedConsumer about accounts being hacked and hijacked with no resolution may not bode well for her issue.

Another reviewer (#4080142) has a similar issue without resolution by customer support. She had her Facebook account hacked and took the necessary steps required by Facebook to have it restored. According to her, it is still locked, and she feels that Facebook “needs to upgrade and actually be there for their customers!

What are Facebook Pros and Cons?

Facebook has become a commonplace way to stay in touch with friends, family, and companies. Businesses are using Facebook as a platform for customer engagement, and Facebook users can build communities around their interests, both commercial and not.

Of course, there are some Facebook pros and cons. There are a few areas where Facebook doesn’t come through quite as strongly. As with any online platform, there are bullies and technical difficulties. Facebook has struggled to stay ahead of customer service issues as well. It can be hard to contact Facebook support at times.

Facebook Pros

  • Connecting with friends and family
  • Storage for pictures and information
  • Socialization
  • Business development
  • Networking

Facebook Cons

  • Poor customer service
  • Security issues
  • Bullying and harassment
  • Logging in issues
  • Difficulties restoring account

How to Call Facebook Support?

Customers are frustrated when they try to call Facebook support. When they do get on the phone to try to figure out how to call Facebook support, they often are given the runaround by an automated phone answering service.

The Facebook customer service number does not show up easily on the social media platform. If you dig enough, you can find the local Facebook customer service phone number for the company in Palo Alto. You can try calling the Facebook support number at 650-543-4800 and 650-308-7300, but you are likely to be unsatisfied with the results.

When you try to contact Facebook this way, you won’t reach a person. Instead, you’ll be caught in a cycle of recorded options asking you to email or to click on a “Help” link that doesn’t actually appear at the bottom of the page. Thousands of Facebook reviews have shared how frustrating this sort of loop can be. But if you can’t get answers over the phone, you still get other ways to contact Facebook customer service.

How to Contact Facebook Customer Support via Social Networks?

Facebook.com is among the first social media websites, so it makes sense that you can contact Facebook customer service through social media channels. If the Facebook customer service number was useless for you, try contacting their support via social media.

Facebook Twitter (@Facebook) – The account is active and allows options for tweets and replies. If you have a Twitter account, you can contact Facebook this way. It may not be a Facebook support number, but it might give you a public platform for a serious complaint.

Facebook Instagram (@Facebook)– Facebook and Instagram are linked, so you may be able to send messages and find support through this channel as well.

Facebook Help Center (https://www.facebook.com/help/) – It is available through the Facebook app or website. In the Help Center, you can find articles and how-to information about common issues. Additionally, you can follow action links for help with specific issues. Many of the Facebook reviews on PissedConsumer address hacking, for instance. If you follow the links in the Help Center, you can find the necessary information about dealing with suspicious activity and reporting hacking.

How to Contact Facebook Customer Service via Email?

It is possible to contact Facebook customer service through email. If you listen to the recorded messages when you call the Facebook customer service phone number, you do get some information on email addresses. The Facebook email address in those messages is press@FB.com if you are with the media or records@FB.com if you are with law enforcement. Neither of those is the Facebook email address you are looking for if you have issues with your account.

How to Get Help From Facebook?

To contact Facebook, you would do best through the Help center on your account. It’s not a specific Facebook email address, but it does work in a way similar to sending an email. To send a Facebook complaint this way, start by logging into your account.

Then look for a downward-facing arrow on the top right. From there you can either “Give Feedback” about a problem with the system or click on “Help & Support” for additional assistance.

After clicking on Help & Support, you have the option to send a message to the Support Inbox. This works like a Facebook email and is a good way to ask about a specific problem. You can also Report a Problem which is a more generic form about issues with the platform.

Once you’ve clicked on Report a Problem, you’ll see an option to either Help us improve Facebook or to let them know Something went wrong.

How to Use Facebook Help Center?

The Facebook Help Center is a great way to get information about issues you might be having with the site without having to try and contact a customer service representative. The Facebook Help Center is designed to provide information for site users, allowing them to avoid having to contact Facebook support directly.

To use the Facebook Help Center, start by clicking on the small arrow under your profile picture in the top right corner of the Facebook screen. Then select Help and Support.

From there you should select Help Center. This will open the Facebook Help Center in a new tab.

Inside the Facebook Help Center, you can browse topics or search for something specific that you might be having issues with using the search bar. The main page also offers six popular topics like Account Settings, Login and Password, Privacy and Security, Pages, Groups and Marketplace. There is a section if you have questions about Security or Login information.

By clicking on the Login and Password option, you can fix login issues and reset your password without having to wait for Facebook support assistance.

Facebook Help Center categories

There are so many great ways to use your Facebook account. You can keep up with friends and family members, join groups, follow videos or share your story life. You can even sell things through the Facebook marketplace. With so many ways to use the social media app, it’s frustrating when you get locked out or need help from the Facebook Help Community. Whether you’re calling or trying to chat with Facebook support, it’s natural to want help when you need it most.

My Facebook has been hacked and the person used isis flags and radical posts and I was immediately shut down. I couldn't change my password or anything as they'd disabled my account asking for ID. I'm on day 3 of waiting and fear I've lost my account. Surely Facebook can see the login area the fact for 10+years I've only posted pics of me and my family and it was a clear hacking job!!. They need to support victims instead of shutting them down. The fact ypu can't even get all your personal pictures back I'd the worst.
