Facebook is where everybody is. It is one of the top social networks in the world with a presence in virtually every country around the globe. The latest statistics for the year 2016 show that Mark Zuckerberg’s social network has over 1.65 billion members who actively use the site each month. Each day, over 1 billion people sign into Facebook.These are staggering statistics indeed.
If you are on Facebook, you are using the site to meet and socialize with friends as well as people you know. You are there to make friends and in the process, you have to use the features that Facebook has to offer such as status updates, Facebook Pages, Groups and Applications. Some business people and organizations are there to reach out to the audience, one of the biggest sources of traffic (visitors) that you can find on earth after Google.
For such a huge platform, it is a big challenge to provide personal support to people with issues and queries. In order to serve users, Facebook could hire thousands of workers to provide technical support or hire virtual assistants to work in a call center that is open 24 hours a day, but all this would involve spending millions of dollars in salaries every month, which could cut a big chunk out of Face book’s monthly profit.
This explains the absence of direct telephone contact and live chat on Facebook.It is difficult and costly to provide such type of user support on an extremely huge platform with over a billion users. Phone and live chat support for advertisers are also not available, but Facebook has an extensive resource of online materials to get help.
Facebook makes use of contact forms for its support system. If you wish to report something, retrieve your password or get help in anything, you will more likely find a reporting or feedback form to submit your issue. Using automated online feedback forms is a smart method of managing a huge platform with a large number of people. In some cases, Facebook makes use of a double screening wall whereby user feedback goes through an algorithmic filter before reaching human administrators. The most basic of all queries are filtered by algorithms and unique queries are handled by human administrators.
However, you can breathe a sigh of relief because there are useful links to Facebook resources that you can use to solve your problems or contact Facebook support team. These are listed below:
