     1. Get your own FaceBook Account. – Signing up for a FaceBook.com account requires two things: an
        email address and a log on (user name and password)
           a. You want to protect your private information as much as possible, so don’t use your personal
                email account. Before you go to FaceBook to sign up, establish a Web email account like
                hotmail.com, msn.com, etc… Use this for your FaceBook email address. As long as you sign in to
                this account at least once every 30 days, it will stay active, even if you don’t use it.

                 b. Create your FaceBook account. Start by visiting www.facebook.com Click on Register!



  Step #1                                                                                                   Step #2




                                              Select the appropriate
                                              category.


           Step #3


                                                             Use your new email address
                                                             (hotmail, yahoo, etc…) and
                                                             fake name and birthday
                                                             information.

                                                                                                             Step #4




                               Log on to your new email account and click on the
                               link in the message. This will verify your account, so
                               Facebook knows that the email address is real.
