Some contact forms have multiple options.

Depending on the option you select, you'll be shown the actual form or redirected to related contact forms or additional information.

If you notice there are 2nd or 3rd options (i.e., duplicate forms for the same issue), submit those as well as the originals.

Ask the Official Facebook Help Center Community

Another way to get help with Facebook issues is to connect with other users in the Facebook Community Forum.

You can browse questions by topic or use the search box at the top of the page.

contact-facebook

If you find a question similar to the one you want to ask, and it's still active, then you can add details about your issue to help others working on the same problem. If you only find old or closed threads, you can use the Ask a Question button to post a new question.

For those looking to establish themselves as experts in the Facebook community, browsing the unanswered questions section will give you opportunities to help others.

Ask the Official Facebook Pages

There are several official Facebook pages.

Some of which are not only posting updates, but also replying to comments from the community.

contact-facebook

Stay connected with the following pages and be sure to jump into conversations when there are posts related to topics you have questions about.

  • Facebook - Facebook Page celebrates how our friends inspire us, support us, and help us discover the world when we connect.
  • Facebook for Business - Facebook for Business provides the latest news, tips and best practices to help you meet your business goals.
  • Facebook & Privacy - Like this Page to learn how to exercise your choice to share what you want with those you want, keep up with changes, and talk with others about the importance of privacy in our digital age.
  • Facebook Media - Explore how public figures and media organizations are using Facebook in extraordinary ways.
  • Facebook Design - Get to know the designers, content strategists and researchers who shape your experience on Facebook.
  • Facebook Developers - Build, grow, and monetize your app with Facebook.
  • Facebook Engineering - They build Facebook.

For those looking to establish themselves as experts in the Facebook community, watch for questions on posts by the official Facebook pages and jump in to answer them when you can.

Conclusion

When you have a problem, I suggest taking multiple avenues to get it resolved.

If you submit the appropriate contact form on Facebook, ask the official Facebook Help Center Community, and start a discussion on a relevant official Facebook page post, you'll likely get the support you need.

Be sure also to tap into resources outside Facebook, such as Facebook user groups on other networks and people you know that are Facebook savvy.
