Before Creating a Facebook Account
Let’s look at some basic FAQ’s you should know before signing up for a Facebook account.
Is it true that you’ll be charged for using Facebook and how much will it cost?
Facebook has made it very clear that their services are totally free and will never require you to pay any money to continue using the it.
But you have the option to make purchases e.g. games, apps and other items. In addition, if you choose to use Facebook from your mobile phone, keep in mind that you’ll be responsible for any fees associated with internet usage and/or text messaging as determined by your mobile carrier.
Is it possible to create a joint Facebook account or share an account with someone else?
Facebook does not permit you to create a joint account. You can only create one account per email address or phone number.
Since each account belongs to one person, it is required that you use your real name as you use in real life. This way, you always know who you’re connecting with. If you ever want to change your Facebook last name

Can I create multiple Facebook accounts?
Facebook is a community where people use their authentic identities so they frown at users signing up for multiple accounts… Hint: It’s better to maintain one awesome personal account.
If you ever want to create an account for your business, organization, brand or product on Facebook, you can simply create a Facebook Page to manage it. But have it in mind that your personal FB profile is for non-commercial purpose and should represent you.
If you’re using a personal profile to represent something other than yourself, you should consider converting it to a page. For models and public figures, there is an option for you to allow followings.
For users operating more than 1 Facebook profile, you can merge them to one central account and add your (maiden name, nickname, former name, etc) to the main Facebook account.

Why am I receiving email invites from friends?
You received this email because a friend invited you to join. When people upload their contacts to FB, they can send invites to those contacts.
If you don’t want to get invites from your friends, you can use the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email.
If you already have an account, your friend may have used an email of yours that isn’t linked to your FB account. You can add this email to your existing account to make sure that you don’t get invites sent to that particular email again.
If you don’t have a Facebook account and want to create one, you can use your email to create an account by following the instructions below.
