Although it may seem silly, there are multiple ways you can sign up for Facebook. Most users will use the desktop website to create their account but you can sign up from a variety of other methods such as a mobile website or application. You can also signup anonymously which prevents others from contacting or even knowing if you are on Facebook. In this article we will discuss a couple of the most popular ways you can sign-up for Facebook.
If you do not have a Facebook account you can sign up for one directly at Facebook.com. This is the easiest and fastest way to get a Facebook account. Simply go to www.facebook.com, enter your real name, date of birth, email address and password and hit enter. A confirmation email will be sent to the email you provided. Click on the link to activate your account and you have successfully set up your new Facebook account.
If you’re like the millions of Facebook users who do their business from a phone, you have the option to use the mobile version of Facebook. In order to sign-up for Facebook from a mobile device, you need to navigate to m.facebook.com or touch.facebook.com from your mobile device. From here there will be a link under the sign-in page to sign-up. Follow the link and enter your real name, date of birth, email or cellphone number as well as your email. You will need to go through a two-step authentication process which means you have to get the confirmation link from the email address you used. Once you click on that link your Facebook will be activated.
