If you want to register Facebook account, chances are you already know what it is. This online phenomenon gave social networking a new meaning and elevated it higher than any social network before.
There are over 500 million reasons to join Facebook and several more appear every minute. It is one of the fastest growing communities in the world and it still doesn’t show signs of slowing down.
If you already know some of the information discussed in the article, feel free to skip them and read only what is new to you.
How to register facebook account?
To register facebook account is pretty simple. It’s free to join, no payments necessary, all you need is a working e-mail address and to be at least 13 years of age. The first step you have to make is – to go on their homepage. To make joining easier, the guys from Facebook placed their registration form there. On that form you will find empty boxes in which you should enter your first name, your last name, your e-mail address (the second time as confirmation), your desired password, gender (whether you’re male or female) and your birthday.
Type your username and password
Your first and last names are self-explanatory. By them you will be known throughout Facebook, it is the name that will be written on top of your profile and using that name people will be able to find and befriend you.
Your e-mail address is going to be used as a user name and on that address you will receive all the notifications and messages you allow the groups, different facebook apps and Facebook itself to send you. Permissions can be modified in Facebook account settings, so you don’t need to worry about that now.
Register facebook with long password
When choosing a password, make it at least as long as 8 characters or preferably more. Try to combine capital (or upper case) letters, small (lower case) letters and numbers. The longer and more complicated it is, the safer the password. Just try not to forget it and don’t give your password to ANYONE. Friends, girlfriends, boyfriends, Mom, Dad – no one should know your login information but yourself.
After that, the only thing left to complete your register facebook account, is to click on the “Sign Up” button and move on to the next page.
What’s waiting for you there is a CAPTCHA security test. CAPTCHA stands for Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart and it serves as a confirmation of your status of being a living, non-computerized (and hopefully not zombified) individual. Just enter the words you see in the little CAPTCHA box and your humanity is no longer under question. If you have any trouble reading the words on the screen, just try pressing the refresh button on the side or try the audio CAPTCHA, in which case the words will be read to you.
Find friends on facebook
Again, press Sign Up and you will be sent to the next page where a 3-step program is there to get you started.
The first step is there to help you find friends whose e-mail addresses you already have on your various e-mail accounts. If you have friends in your address books that are already Facebook users, this is the first chance you have to ask them to befriend you there.
Also, to find a friend after registration you can use the friend finder (picture shown below).
Fill profile info
The second step is filling in your Profile info. This is just basic information about you that can help people find you or get to know you a little bit better. There are 3 text boxes where you can enter information about your secondary school, university and/or employer. A lot more information can be added later, when you finish the registration process, and it can always be modified. Also, you can customise the permissions for viewing your personal information for each group of users any time you want.
Upload profile picture
The third step is uploading a photo that will serve as your profile picture. Your profile picture is the one that shows on your profile and next to everything you do that is publicly shown on people’s Facebook homepages.
Congratulations you have successfully register facebook account!
