How to Make Two Facebook Accounts With One Email Address

By Sara Hickman

If you want to have a business account and personal account on Facebook, you need separate email addresses. Facebook only allows you to use one account per email address. However, you can create a second account with a new email address and add your original email address as a primary contact. You cannot merge the accounts together to create a master account, but people will be able to find you when searching by your email address.

  • Computer with Internet access
  • Facebook account

Step 1

Go to the Facebook website (see Resources section).

Step 2

Look for the Sign Up section on the center, right side of the Facebook home page.

Step 3

Fill out all of the required fields and fill in the "Your Email" section with your secondary email address.

Step 4
