Ok this seems quite a weird topic to discuss, but I'm sure many of us have at least 1 fake account for whatever reasons. :geek:


So will you reveal how many fake Facebook accounts you actually have?
Why did you create those accounts?
Do you spend more time on fake accounts than your 'real' ones?

I don't need any more than one and I can't see why I would need more than that one although having said that, when I joined Grabpoints, it seemed to create a different one but I don't know how that happened as I can't bring it up on a facebook search. Weird.

You're sure? "many of us"?
Is creating fake Facebook accounts normal? :? :?:

I've never had one. Never even thought of it.

well, it's because quite a number of my friends have more than 1 facebook account so I thought this reflects the reality of larger population.....

I used to have more than FB account. But it was a nuisance to keep track of. It was like having a split personality. Only I didn't have black outs and switch from one personality to the next. It was ridiculous trying to keep up with separate networks of friends. In real life you have different "networks" of people you interact with - family, personal friends, people at work, people online, etc. But they all interact the ONE YOU. I reasoned that Facebook was no different. So I decided on one account and that's what I've been using for over 5 years. I don't know how people keep up with multiple FB accounts. :crazy: :crazy:

Just curious. Wondered if you did a study and noticed a pattern. The same people with fake Facebook accounts ... do they also have fake Google Plus accounts, fake Instagram accounts, fake Pinterest accounts, fake Twitter acccounts ...

I mean: Why just at Facebook? :crazy:

Well, for me and my friends, Twitter is a platform for official stuffs, so we only have Twitter accounts for companies or societies.

As for instagram, it's mainly for posting food pics, so no point having fake accts. :lol:

@BitCastDaily
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.

I'm with you there, cmoneyspinner! I don't have one, never had one and have no need for one. Why do people have them, anyway; I'm dying to know?!

I have only one fb account and I use it for mostly talking with family. I also use it to play games that require a fb account to use as a profile. I get friends request all the time but I don't even log in I just use it to play games :)

There is a person I know who is creating multiple fake accounts to spread a web of lies. He has made about 60 fake "family members" and short of reporting all of them individually is there anything I can do? I'm making this question on a fake account myself because I don't want him finding me...but he is a pathological liar and this needs to stop.

I have one fake account that I created when I played FB games and I could send myself items that I needed since I didn't have many friends that played the same game. 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:
