I don't think Facebook should have taken down my post.

We usually offer the chance to request a review, and follow up if we got decisions wrong.
We have fewer reviewers available right now because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We're trying hard to prioritize reviewing content with the most potential for harm.
This means you may see the option to Disagree with Decision instead of Request Review.
When you Disagree with Decision, we may not be able to follow up with you, but your feedback helps us do better in the future.
We hide or remove content (example: photo, comment, post) from Facebook when we find that it goes against our Community Standards. Our Community Standards define what is and isn't allowed on Facebook, and they apply all over the world. They're designed to encourage expression and create a safe environment on Facebook.
We know we don't always get it right when we decide to take something down. If your content was taken down and you think it doesn't go against our Community Standards, you can Request Review in most circumstances. For some types of content, you can't request a review, but we're adding more options.
When you request a review, we'll take another look at the decision we made. To request a review:
- Click in the top right of Facebook.
- Select Settings & Privacy, then click Settings.
- Click Support Inbox.
- Open the message we sent you about taking down this content.
- If you see the option, click Request Review.
Once you ask us to take another look, your content will be reviewed again by Facebook, usually within 24 hours. If we find we've made a mistake, we'll let you know, and your post, photo or video will be restored.
If you request a review and still don’t agree with our decision, you may be able to appeal to the Oversight Board. Keep in mind that not all decisions are eligible for appeal to the Oversight Board and the board only selects a certain number of eligible appeals, so they may not choose yours to review. You can read more about the board’s bylaws and structure on their website.
