Want to join the ever-growing Facebook community? Creating a Facebook account is free, and will only take a few minutes. Once your account is created, you can share interesting things with friends, upload images, chat, and much more.
Open the Facebook homepage. You will need to be at least 13 years old to create a Facebook account. Facebook accounts are free, but you can purchase things for your Facebook account. You can only create one Facebook account per email address.
Enter in your information. On the Facebook homepage, enter in your first name, last name, email address, password, birthday, and gender. You must use your real name for your account. Nicknames are allowed as long as they are a variation on your real name (Jim instead of James, for example).
Manage your privacy settings. There are countless horror stories of people posting things that they don’t want others to see, or losing a job because of something controversial they shared. Take some time to set up your privacy settings to prevent the wrong people from seeing what you post.
Part 3 of 3:Using Facebook
Share and post. You can post to your own timeline or post to your friends’ timelines. You can also share content from elsewhere on the internet, including links, images, and videos.
Chat on Facebook. Facebook allows you to chat with anyone on your friends list. If the person you are chatting with is not online, they will receive your message the next time they log in. You can also download the Messenger app for your phone to chat on the go.
Upload photos. Facebook allows you to upload your photos to post to your profile and share with friends and family. You can upload single photos or organize your photos into albums. Make sure to not upload anything containing questionable content.
Create an event. You can use Facebook to create events and invite people. You can set the date and time, enter a location, make posts for people that will be attending, and invite specific people. Facebook events are quickly becoming one of the main ways that people organize gatherings.
