If you have not yet signed up then you may be wondering how to create your own account. Well, the process is very simple to follow and it only takes a few minutes to do. Here are some step by step instructions for you to follow to help you set up your very own Facebook account.

Step 1 – Signing Up on Facebook

When you go to Facebook.com, you see a screen that asks you to login at the upper right corner or a web form for signing up for a free account. Choose to sign up and fill out the form.

The form asks for your first name, Last name, your email address (you need to reenter your email address), a password, gender and your birthday. Click Sign Up.

Step 4 – Find Friends

Once you click the link you will be taken to Facebook where you can log in, edit your profile, find friends, and edit the information you want to share.

This is where you can search for your friends using your email accounts. This is a pretty nifty tool. Facebook will analyze your contact info in your email account.

It will add anyone to your friends list that it finds already signed up on Facebook and it can send a message to everyone else with an invite to Facebook. You also have the option to skip this step and proceed to Step 2.

Step 5 – Profile Information

On this page you are asked to fill in information about your high school, university, and employer. You can choose to skip this step, but know that this information can really help others find you on Facebook when they do searches.

Also, Facebook is smart enough to see that other people who are not already your friends have the same information and will make friend recommendations to you.

When you start typing in information, detailed suggestions will show up making it easy to find what you are trying to type in. It’s super easy. When you are done, click the Save & Continue button to continue or click Skip to move to the next step.

When you are done, click the Save & Continue button to continue or click Skip to finish up.
