Facebook is a social media website where you can connect with people from different areas of your life. Occasionally, however, you may come across something that is offensive. When you see something that you think violates the Facebook Terms such as nudity, bullying, graphic violence, or spam, you may wish to report it. Even facebook provides ways to report someone for violating terms even if you do not have a Facebook account.
After reviewing if facebook authorities consider they can remove the post, page or block the account. On Saturday faccebook removed the page “Salahuddin-er Ghora” from which life threat message has been posted to Shyamal Kanti Bhakta, the headmaster of Narayanganj Piyar Sattar Latif High school, Bangladesh.

Facebook said, “We reviewed the page you reported for having suicidal content. Since it is violated our community standard, we removed it. We let ‘Salahuddin-er Ghora’ know that their page has been removed.
