How do I Create a Facebook account?

If you are wondering how you can be a Facebook member, this post will enlighten you on how to do it. First of all make sure that you have an email account, you not have to create a new one. Just use the one that you have; creating another email won’t be a problem either. You can create a Gmail account here.

So, go to and you will be directed to the page below

create fb acc

Enter your name, email or phone number, password, date of birth and gender in the spaces provided. Then click the green button with create account label. In order to finish creating your account, you’ll need to confirm that you own the email or phone number that you provided. You must note that you have to be at least 13 years old to create a Facebook account.

So, why are you being asked to add your mobile phone number to your account? Adding a mobile phone number to your account:

  • Helps keep your account secure
  • Makes it easier to connect with friends and family on Facebook
  • Makes it easier to regain access to your account if you have trouble logging in

You may see a number suggested for you when we ask you to add your mobile phone number. It will only be added to your account if you choose to add and confirm it.

A suggested mobile number may be based on:

  • Your mobile phone or tablet
  • Your mobile operator
  • Contact info provided by others on Facebook
  • A mobile number that you entered previously but didn’t confirm

Keep in mind that you can control who can see your phone number.

When creating an account, you are required to provide a password. Therefore, you need to create a strong password; the details below guides you on how you can make your Facebook password strong

  • When you create a new password, make sure that it’s at least 6 characters long. Try to use a complex combination of numbers, letters and punctuation marks (e.g. 123facebook@).
  • If you see a message letting you know the password you entered isn’t strong enough, try mixing together uppercase and lowercase letters. You can also make the password more complex by making it longer with a phrase or series of words that you can easily remember, but no one else knows (e.g. 123MyFacebookPassword!@).

Keep in mind that your Facebook password should also be different than the passwords you use to log into other accounts, like your email or bank account.
