Make two Facebook accounts to have a business and personal account on the website.

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.
