If you’ve ever had an issue, bug or situation you needed to contact Facebook about, chances are you may have felt frustrated at how difficult it is to a) find HOW to contact Facebook and b) actually get a response.
Facebook used to provide some semblance of support via a series of email addresses, e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org. However, in an effort to better serve its members and scale the support, the only way to reach Facebook is through a vast array of custom forms. Thing is, all those forms are scattered throughout the Help Center and you can often go on a wild goose chase attempting to find the right one.
Help is at hand! I scoured Facebook (and Google!) for you and have compiled this helpful directory of Facebook’s contact forms. As I become aware of more, I’ll add to this directory.
UPDATE: How To Report Things – use this guide to show you exactly where to report content on Facebook.

Please do *not* call or email my offices with Facebook issues, as I am unable to provide Facebook tech support, due to sheer volume and due to the fact I do not work for Facebook so am unable to provide direct assistance with various issues. If you are unable to contact Facebook directly through any of these forms, unfortunately, you just need to keep trying. Thank you!
