What happens to a Facebook account when it is reported as compromised?
According to Facebook,

If you believe your account has been compromised by another person or a virus, please click the "My Account Is Compromised" button below. We'll help you log back into your account so that you can regain control.

Question: When an account is reported as being compromised or hacked, what happens to the account? Is the account or any of its content deleted? I cannot seem to find much on what goes on past the "I'm sure I want to proceed with recovery and reporting this account as compromised." What happens next?

What happens? Well, depending on the path you follow, different things.

For example, you can be asked to fill out a form that asks you questions regarding information relating to your account, as is described in this article. Then, as that article says, someone at Facebook reviews the information and checks it against what they already have.

Once you report the account as compromised, it is locked down. Meaning only the people at Facebook can access it. Then, you must provide enough information to prove it was yours. Then, you get access to the account to fix/change back any information that was changed (like the email address the password would get sent to, etc.)
