What is defamation and how do I report it on Facebook?

Defamation is generally a false statement of fact that harms someone’s reputation. If you would like to report a post you believe is defamatory, you can fill out this form.
Please note that, due to local laws, this reporting form may not be available in your location. In addition, filling out a defamation report through this form doesn’t guarantee that we will restrict access to the reported content.
Certain statements may not be defamatory but may still go against our Community Standards for bullying or harassment, for example. Learn how to report violations of our Standards.
