Why does it always feel like a huge task to contact Facebook support?

Simply because most people don’t even know how to contact Facebook properly.

If you also fall into that category and are wondering how you can quickly contact Facebook customer service and raise your complaint, you’ve landed in the right place.

In this post, we’re going to reveal 5 different effective methods that you can use to contact Facebook’s support team.

On top of that, if you run ads or have a Facebook business account, we’ve also shared how you can get personalized support for your business or ad account as quickly as possible.

So, let’s not waste our time and dive right into the post.

Does Facebook Respond to Complaints?

That’s the most common question that every Facebook user has before contacting Facebook support for any of their queries.

And to be honest, it’s totally fair to have this question inside your mind. After all, more than 3 billion people around the world use Facebook every single day.

It almost seems impossible to handle this much amount of support queries from our point of view.

But honestly, Facebook’s support team does a great job at this.

We tried contacting Facebook a few months ago for one of the issues we had with our Facebook page.

And they were super helpful and quick in solving our issues.

Yes, we might have got lucky, and sometimes it might take a while to get a response from them.

But compared to any other social media platform, they do an outstanding job.

In short: 

Facebook definitely responds to complaints and queries, but you have to be precise about your problem and attach proof and screenshots to make your point clear.

How to Contact Facebook Support (5 Different Ways)

You might read some articles or watch videos on the web that show how you can actually call Facebook support and get your issues resolved within a few hours.

But those are just nothing but complete fluff.

There are only 5 different legit ways to contact Facebook support directly and actually get heard.


And these methods work like a charm only if you have a little patience.

1. Contact Facebook Support By Email

Facebook has plenty of department-centric emails that you can use to email them about your query.

Each email represents a specific department, and you would have to choose the correct email for the right query.

Or else, you might not hear anything back from them if your email lands on an unrelated inbox.

Here are some of the email IDs of Facebook that you can use to contact them:

  • advertise@fb.com: If you have any ad-related queries, you can use this email.
  • press@fb.com: If you have any PR or press-related queries, you can use this email.
  • support@fb.com: For general support queries, you can use this email.
  • abuse@fb.com: If you notice any Facebook policy violations, you can report them using this email.
  • support@fb.com: For blocked content or accounts, you can appeal for a review using this email.
  • ip@fb.com: For intellectual property-related concerns and reports, you can use this email.
  • disabled@fb.com: If your account got hacked or disabled for some reason, you can contact Facebook’s support team using this email.
  • phish@fb.com: For reporting phishing emails and messages.
  • datarequests@fb.com: If you have concerns about your data privacy, contact Facebook support at this email.

And that’s it.

These are some of the most crucial email addresses of Facebook’s support team that you can use to contact them 24/7.

Keep in mind that this method might work a bit slowly simply because of the amount of emails they receive per day.

But usually, you’ll get a response from them (if you’ve hit the right inbox) within a few working days.

2. Contact Facebook Support Using Facebook Help Center

This is the easiest way to reach out to Facebook’s customer support.

You can use the built-in support system within the Facebook help center to raise your complaints or ask any query.

The Facebook help center already has thousands of guides and answers to frequently asked questions that might help you resolve your issue even without contacting Facebook support.

And if you don’t find the answer, you can also contact the support team from the help center itself.

3. Use Facebook’s Live Chat Support

If you run ads on Facebook and you have a Facebook ads manager account, you’ll have direct contact with the support team and get way faster response than any other method.

To access the live chat support feature, head over to the Meta business help page.

Then click on “Get Support” from the right side of your screen.

After that, you would have to give some basic information about your issue, and a Facebook support representative will be assigned to talk to you over chat live.

However, there’s one catch.

This feature isn’t available in every country and for every user.

Only selected users (who probably spend a decent amount of money) and selected countries have this feature.

So, if you have the feature, consider yourself as lucky.

4. By Using Feedback And Contact Forms

Facebook has a lot of feedback and contact forms for specific issues that you can use to raise your complaint to the support team.

This method has the highest success rate among all the methods except live chat.

To use Facebook’s feedback form, click on your profile icon and then tap on “Give Feedback.”

Now, click on “Something went wrong” if you’re facing any technical issues within the platform.

Now, if you want to check the status of your report, again click on your profile icon and tap on “Help & Support.”

Then, click on “Support Inbox,” and here you’ll be able to see the current status of your complaint.

5. Quickly Contact Facebook Using Social Media

Now, lastly, even after using all these methods, if you don’t get a response from Facebook’s support team, you have only one option left.

That is social media.

You can post about the issue you’re having on your Facebook account and tag Facebook’s official IDs.

They’ll quickly notice your issue and respond back to help you solve that issue.

You can use any social media platform where Facebook has an official account, but we personally recommend either Facebook itself or Twitter.

Here are some of the official IDs of Facebook that you can tag:

And if you want to tag them on Twitter, here are some of their official Facebook’s Twitter IDs you can use:

You can contact or tag any of these accounts to get a quick response to your queries.

How to Contact Facebook Business Support

As we’ve shared above, you can contact Facebook support via live chat (if it’s supported in your country).

Live chat is the fastest way to raise your complaints and solve them quickly.

But if, in case, you don’t have the Live Chat option for your account, you can also send them an email at – advertise@fb.com.

If you also don’t get a response by emailing them, you can tag them on social media or direct message them about your issue.

Earlier in this post, we’ve already shared the list of their official social media IDs.
