How to Make a Second Facebook Account

Most people have a Facebook account to keep up with friends and family, share photos and post updates about daily happenings. Facebook sets no limit to the number of accounts a person can have, and some people opt to have separate accounts for personal interests, friends, family and coworkers. Because a Facebook account is tied to a unique email address, anyone can start a second account as long as a unique email address is provided. Accounts are completely separate and do not share friends, photos or applications.

Step

Register for a second email address if you have only one. Many free Web-mail services like Gmail (gmail.com) and Hotmail (hotmail.com) will take only a few minutes to sign up.

Step

Go to the Facebook homepage (facebook.com) and fill in the required fields on the sign-up form along the right side of the page. Enter an email address that has not yet been used to register for a previous Facebook account, your first and last name, a password, your gender and your birthdate.

Step

Click the green "Sign up" button below the form fields. Your account will be validated and an email will be sent to you to confirm your account.
