If no such topics suit our concerns then by just clicking on the tab ‘Ask any question’ one can put in the specific question that needs to be addressed. Even though this method is not a direct approach but there is a probability that our concern may get noticed through this.

Another way to approach them is through toll free number but it’s a waste of time to even try that since its always answered by automated voices directing one to the online support. Its important to understand that there are more than a billion users of facebook worldwide and so the issues generated may be equally in bulk. Hence to expect facebook to solve all of them is nearly impossible.
