While Facebook can also be used to promote your business, it is first and foremost a place for people.
How do I create a Facebook profile?
Follow these 7 steps and this will be quick and painless. I promise.
1. Go to Facebook
Click on this link to go to Facebook.
2. Put In Your Information
To start a new account, input information on this front page.
Be sure to use a valid email, and fill out everything that is required.
Click on the “Sign Up” button when you’ve finished.
3. Enter Your Email Address
You should see 3 simple steps.
On step 1, enter your email address again so that Facebook can connect you with your friends and family.
If you want to search later, just click “Skip This Step.”
4. Enter Your Information
Step 2 lets you put in some info that will help your friends find you.
Once you’ve entered the information, click “Save & Continue.”
You don’t have to do this. Click “Skip” if you’d rather do it later.
5. Upload a Picture
In step 3, add a picture of yourself. This will be the picture your friends see when they look at your page.
If you have a photo on your computer, click “Upload a Photo” and navigate to the image. If you do not, then skip this step.
6. Check Your Email
Facebook will send you an email to make sure you’re really interested in starting an account.
This is a good time to open the email and click on the “Complete Sign-up” button to continue to your profile. If you can’t find the email in your inbox, check your junk mail or spam folder.
This might send you back to the steps you’ve already finished. If so, you can always skip through them or add more information. To skip these steps click on the “Home” tab on the top right of your screen.
7. Personalize Your Profile
Now that your profile has been started, it’s time to add in the rest of the details! The rest of this information is optional, but it gives your page personality. Feel free to add as much as you want.
To get started, click on your name at the top right of the screen. This brings you to your profile page (this is what everyone else sees when they look you up).
You will see the options on the left to customize information about your work history, education history, and where you live. The “Update Info” button on the right will bring you to a page where you can add a lot more information about yourself.
Keep in mind that the more info you have, the easier it will be for your friends to connect with you. It also makes Facebook much more fun.
