Nonetheless, all the questions are clear, so let’s move forward and get to know how you can create multiple profiles on Facebook.
How to Create Multiple Profiles on Facebook?
The process of creating multiple Facebook profiles is very simple. If you are to make one, here are the steps that you can follow to make multiple profiles on Facebook.
Step 1. Go to your Facebook app and log in to your primary account if you are not logged in.
Note: Do not worry if you are using Facebook lite app, the feature is also available there.
Step 2. Tap on the menu icon in the top right corner for Android and the bottom right corner if you are using an iPhone.
Step 3. Here, you can see a drop-down in the form of an arrow beside your Facebook account name. Tap on that arrow.
Step 4. A new box will appear with the option, Create New Profile. Click on it.
Step 5. The new profile-creating procedure is started now. Fill up all the details like User Name, profile Photo, and all other things.
Also, it will suggest you make new friends and like some pages. It’s your choice, you can use the skip button to do it later.
After doing all the formalities, your new profile on Facebook, without any other phone number or email ID, is ready to use. Now, you can use your multiple Facebook profiles altogether. You can easily switch between the profiles using that same drop-down button.
As mentioned, you can create 4 profiles with one primary account. But there is one thing you should know. You can’t make all four IDs at one time. You have to maintain a 72-hour time gap between creating multiple profiles. Once you have created a secondary profile, you must wait for 72 hours, and then you can go with the other.
Different Profile For Different Purposes!
Now, as you have multiple Facebook profiles, you can use all of them for your different purposes, let it be anything. But you have to keep the privacy and policy in mind still. It’s not that you have multiple accounts; you can use them for any purpose. Still, you have to follow all the terms and conditions of Facebook as the primary account.
If Facebook finds you violating its rules and regulations, action can be taken. So, be careful with all your profiles as much as your primary account. You can use your multiple Facebook profiles to explore other points of view and express your thoughts freely.
