How to create a Facebook account easily

If you have never used Facebook, you may not know how to set up a new account. The process is user-friendly. You can enter all the required information into the main Facebook page, creating a new account in a minute or two. Once you get your new Facebook account, you can use it to chat with friends, send messages, upload videos, share photos, join groups and find activities.

Visit in your Web browser.

Click on the "First Name" box to select it. Type your first name into the box once.

Select the "Last Name" box and enter your last name.

Select the two e-mail boxes and enter your e-mail address. Facebook requires you to enter the email address twice, because the email address must be accurate for a new account creation.

Click on the "New Password" box and type in the password you want associated with the account.

Click on the gender and birthday drop-down boxes, selecting each from the list of options.

Click the green "Sign Up" button. You are redirected to a new screen. This screen tells you that an activation link has been sent to your e-mail account.

Log in to your e-mail account and click on the activation link in the email that Facebook sends you. Once you click the link, your account becomes active. You are now officially signed up and logged in.
