Social networks are growing in popularity these days. For many, it is a fun way to keep in touch with relatives and friends. People can easily share their experiences and real life events via the Internet. In this article, you will learn how to create a Facebook® account.


  1. Open your Internet browser and go to the Facebook® home page.
  2. In the right section, you will see a “Sign Up” section. Enter all the necessary information (First Name, Last Name, Your Email, Re-enter Email, New Password, I am and Birthday) and click on the green button “Sign Up”.
  3. On the next page, you will see the “Security Check”, type the letters you see in the picture into the “Text in the box” field and click on the “Sign Up” button.
  4. Now, your account is created. The next three steps should be done to help enhance your account.

Next three steps:

  1. Are your friends already on Facebook®? In this step, you can let the Facebook® application browse your other communication accounts, such as email, Skype™, etc. to add your information to the account.  Or, you can skip this step.
  2. Fill in your Profile Information. You can fill information about yourself, such as your hometown, date of birth, schools, employers, etc. The Facebook® application will also match you with other people based on the information you have entered. For example, you will see people from your school or hometown, etc. Or, you can skip this step.
  3. Set your profile picture. Set your profile photo either by uploading an image from your computer or you can take a snapshot using your webcam to upload. There is a “Skip” option available if you did not want to upload a photo.
