5 easy ways to contact Facebook support

How to contact Facebook about a problem

Facebook only has 4.6k employees and 1.3 billion monthly active users. Meaning, for every one person that works at Facebook, there are approximately 282,000 people competing with you for Facebook customer care attention.

There are over 27,000 search queries from the US alone on “how do I contact Facebook customer service”. When I went through Google search queries, I discovered that there are more than 30 different queries pointing to how to contact Facebook support about a problem. This simply means a lot of Facebook users encounter problems on a daily basis. I’m not surprised because Facebook daily user statistics is so great; an average of 11 million users per 18 minutes.

  • Every day, user’s accounts are been hacked,
  • Banned from Facebook marketplace,
  • Ads flagged for unusual activities,
  • Unable to boost ads
  • Unable to login,
  • Technical issues with Facebook.


While some of these problems could be resolved from Facebook help page, others may require you to contact Facebook customer service. Unlike Facebook Calibra with 24/7 Live support, Facebook itself does not have a 24/7 customer service, neither does Facebook live chat.

This has caused a lot of inconvenience to Facebook users and has given scammers a free hand. If you see any Facebook toll free contact number on the internet aside 650-543-4800, it is fake. Facebook does not have a contact number for regular Facebook users.

If you should search for how to contact Facebook directly on Google, you will see a result showing 650-543-4800 as Facebook’s best toll-free number or Facebook call centre number. But the truth is, no Facebook real customer service agent would pick the phone. Whenever you call that number, you will get an automated response from IVR or robotic phone menu system which of course is opened 24/7.


But why does Facebook not have live support?

Because it will be impossible to cater to all its users. Facebook is a nation of its own. Billions of people use Facebook for personal use as well as professional use. With Facebook, you can connect with friends, family, and colleagues. Moreover, Facebook sits at the front row when it comes to promoting business and meeting new clients.

Let me show you the statistics of Facebook… This will give you a hint of why Facebook do not have direct customer care contact or active support number.

  • Instagram with 300 million+ users
  • WhatsApp with 700 million
  • Facebook messenger has 600 million users

Facebook has a complicated algorithm sensitive to user’s activities and often inconsistent with their enforcement. Imagine Facebook responding to 10,000,000 queries per day. So in other to avoid the cumbersome queue of queries, Facebook has developed a robust automated help to problems. It was designed to solve 70% of problems users may want to contact Facebook for.

Please take note! From the statistics above it is glaring that Facebook has a lot of active users, but doesn’t have a lot of employees, so be patient for a response. If you try to flood them with queries, you get on their nerves. At best, you have no effect on them. Facebook has something like 250,000 active users for every employee. Even if every one of them did customer service – they don’t – and even if one in ten of those people had a business page issue to take care of, that’s still a massive amount of work for every one of them. It’s no wonder they’d ignore you.

The process of solving your issue is simple, but it’s hard; it involves patience, which unfortunately tends to translate directly into lost revenue especially for businesses oriented Facebook users

  • Take the time to read the errors and everything they send you very carefully, so you know as much as possible about what went wrong.
  • Strive if possible to fix any issues that are causing the flag.
  • Fill out any required forms or tickets and provide all relevant information, with exact details and as much precision as possible.
  • Track everything you have received and sent, so you have a paper trail.
  • Be patient and let Facebook get to the ticket as soon as they can.
  • Check your emails from Facebook to see if you have any warnings or issues you may have overlooked.
  • Check Facebook inbox support regularly.

It will take a while, and that’s why you need to be as precise and thorough as possible when you report a problem. When working with Facebook it is best to stick to one medium and play by their rules.
