How to turn off Facebook’s annoying “Shake to Report” feature

If you’re fixated on the Facebook app like I am, it’s likely that you accidently launched the Report a Problem pop-up by shaking your phone. This activated the “Shake to Report” box, which was designed to let users rapidly alert Facebook of app errors or postings that may be deemed spam or dangerous.

Because it often shows when it is not required, the new “Shake to Report” function may be quite unpleasant. Simply setting your phone down on a surface may bring up the intrusive Report a Problem pop-up, preventing you from watching movies and engaging in that crucial Facebook stalking that we all like.
