OK. Cool! Although your response still doesn't quite explain the need for fake-ness. If there is a "need". I still don't see a reason for fake accounts. ANYWHERE!! :? But those who create them may have perfectly valid and dare I say ... legitimate reasons.



lol, I found a pseudo-legitimate reason for creating fake account: to send resources or gifts to your real account in FB games

I haven't used it in a long time and I had actually forgot about until FB sent my an email because it was my fake account person's birthday. :lol: :lol:



lol, you reminded me of why I created one 'backup' account (not really fake because I still used my real name on that account) many years ago, just in case my main account was deactivated or hacked for no reason I could use that backup account to reconnect with my firends

I have only one Facebook account so here is no question of having any fake accounts. I do not have a duplicate account on any social media sites since I use none for my personal use. I use only WhatsApp for staying in touch with family and friends.

It's illegal. :P
At the moment, I don't have any, I don't need any.
I used them to spy those who blocked me, and also for games.

It can be serious if it deals with identity theft or copyright infringement, otherwise it's just a violation of the guidelines (they wouldn't arrest you for that, but that's still bad conduct). :?

I agree with you, but the identities of my fake accounts are all made up, those people don't exist :lol:

:shh: One of my major purposes of why I make or create a facebook fake account is to talk and analyze a person involved within to know their secrecy in life. For example, you are in a relationship and you are hesitating that your girlfriend or boyfriend look into others. In which case you use facebook fake account to inspect him or her to know whether he or she cheats on you. :crazy:

Technically you only have one because you can't really access the first one.

I have only one FB account and that is not fake. I have heard and know people who have multiple accounts on FB and they are fake accounts. I am not so active on FB. I use it as a platform to promote my articles and blogs.

I can't really blame people for wanting to have fake accounts to protect their private information (as well as that of their family and friends). I would use one for those sites that want you to sign up using FB and for other business or earning stuff where I don't want my life story and my family's and my friends' life stories being shared, traded, sold, etc.

I have a Facebook account only one. I do not see the need to create more than one account. I barely keep up with the present one. Facebook to me is not what it used to be. I am very annoyed with the numerous amount of inappropriate videos being sent around on Facebook. I am strongly thinking of deactivating my current account.
