Reporting an Issue
There are five ways to classify your report:
Not interested in an account
We appreciate you letting us know. In the short term, Managing your followed users is a good way to prevent seeing other user's Feed posts.
A user is posting spam
Spam...you recognize it as soon as you see it, and can usually smell it from a mile away.
There are many different types of spam out there, but you should generally use the same caution you use when checking emails and apply that to content you come across in all communities.
- Bulk tagging or mentions
- Sharing of questionable links
- Sharing undesired or excessive content
If we find a user is posting spam, we will let them know that their account may be compromised, or take other action, including temporarily suspending the account while we resolve the issue.
Their account may be hacked
A recent study shows that nearly two in three U.S. adults believe they have been hacked at some point. If you think an account has been hacked, here are some things to look for.
- A significant increase in posts from the account
- Dramatic increase or decrease in followers/following
- Posts that are difficult to understand
- Profile picture or name change
They are being abusive or harmful
