According to Facebook, with the introduction of these new tools “if someone posts something on Facebook that makes you [a user] concerned about their well-being, you can reach out to them directly — and you also can also report the post to us.

We have teams working around the world, 24/7, who review reports that come in. They prioritize the most serious reports like self-injury”
