This mechanism was trialled in the United States to allow users to flag postings by other people that could give clues about suicidal plans or thoughts to self-harm.
The team of Facebook will then evaluate the risk level as indicated by the post and will then intervene accordingly.
The social media giant said in a statement that:
“As of today, the resources we send to the person who posted something concerning will include an expanded set of options. People can now choose to reach out to a friend, contact a helpline, or see tips.”
