While you can try to contact Facebook directly via phone and email address, it's difficult, if not impossible, to get a response. Tweeting at Facebook could get a response, and you can also visit Facebook's Help Center or complete a support request form.

Facebook trouble? Whether you have an account-related issue, or you want to report a bug or problem, you have a few ways to contact Facebook support. We’ll show you what your contact options are.

Can You Contact Facebook By Phone?

If you want to contact Facebook directly, you probably want a phone number. Facebook does have a couple of numbers you can call to try getting in touch with the company. However, both phone numbers only play a pre-recorded message. You can’t talk to a real human on either number.

If you want to try your luck calling them regardless, Facebook’s support phone numbers are:

  • +1 650-543-4800
  • +1 650-308-7300

Can You Email Facebook for Support?

Facebook doesn’t often encourage people to contact it via email. However, in the past, Facebook listed a few email addresses that you could use to contact Facebook directly.

You can still try sending an email to one of these email addresses and possibly get a response. There’s no guarantee, though.

  • support@fb.com: Use this email to get general support.
  • press@fb.com: Send your press-related queries to this email.
  • records@fb.com: Use this email for law enforcement concerns.
  • appeals@fb.com: Appeal against your blocked content using this email.
  • abuse@fb.com: Report content violating Facebook’s guidelines via this email address.
  • datarequests@fb.com: Use this email to ask Facebook what data it has about you.
  • ip@fb.com: For intellectual property-related queries, use this email.
  • phish@fb.com: Report phishing content via this email address.

Contact Facebook on Twitter

These days, one of the ways you can contact a company is by tweeting them on Twitter, and Facebook is no exception.

Send a tweet to Meta.

You can send a tweet to one of Facebook’s Twitter handles, and possibly get a response. There’s no guarantee your query will be looked at, but it’s worth trying if your issue doesn’t need to be fixed urgently.

Some of Facebook’s official handles are @Meta, @FacebookApp, and @Messenger.

Use Facebook’s Help & Support Menu

If you didn’t get a response from Facebook’s phone number, email, or Twitter account, use the platform’s “Help & Support” menu to get help on many matters. This menu lets you access the site’s Help Center, view responses to your reported items, and even allows you to report a bug or send feedback to Facebook.

An easy way to get help from Facebook is to access the platform’s “Help & Support” menu. This menu contains the options to help you access Help Center, view responses to your reported items, and report a bug or send feedback to Facebook.

You can access this menu on both your desktop and your phone.
