I want to ask question about problems in my Facebook account. On which Stack Exchange site should I ask?

    Pretty broad. If you have questions about using Facebook you could head over to Web Apps. Sounds more like you need Facebook Support though. – animuson Nov 15 '14 at 15:46
  • not broad at all. It is a question to the point. – Yannis Dran May 30 '18 at 10:46
  • I have the exact same question, currently about understanding why Facebook censor my blog related to math popularization (about everyday bias related to that, and fitting none of the "out of our standards" topics), and what can/should I do about that. In the past, I often had questions about stuck situations, like how to signal a phishing post that manage to undisplay signaling button. "contacting Facebook" is near-impossible, while expert community has some technical knowledge of how to. → We do need a place for that, and it's technical based. – Fabrice NEYRET Sep 13 '20 at 10:33
  • ( Beside, Facebook is no longer "just a product": it happens to be a part of the web where it's often impossible not to be (when you need to reach a large bunch of peoples that are already around)). – Fabrice NEYRET Sep 13 '20 at 10:33

Questions about using Facebook are on-topic for Web Applications SE:

Web Applications Stack Exchange is for expert and advanced users of web applications.

If your question generally covers …

  • Using Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Google, or any other website which behaves like an application

Do study the site help center to see what is on and off-topic.

If you have a Facebook support issue, you'll need to contact Facebook directly. Web Applications SE can help you make sense of the features Facebook offers (e.g. how do I prevent my photos from being seen by anyone but my friends?), they cannot fix broken accounts.

If you've got problems with your account then you need to be talking to Facebook support, not some Q&A site on the internet.

    Facebook support is horrible and their documentation is almost as bad. If you want to solve a Facebook problem 99% of the time you find the answer on a blog or forum, so why not a SE? – jerclarke Mar 4 '19 at 17:16
