Setting up a Facebook account

So you decided to take the plunge and create a Facebook account? You
are not alone. There are over 400 million people on this social networking
website! In fact, if Facebook were a country, it would be the third most
populated country in the world, only behind India and China (impressive or
scary, depending on how you look at it).
Steps to creating an account:
1 Visit


Provide your first and last names, an e-mail address, birthday and gender.
Finally, create a password, something you will remember, but tough enough
it won’t be easily determined. We suggest using at least 11 digits, with at
least 3 numbers, substituting symbols for letters (like “!” for “I”). If you are a
married woman, it might be easier for old friends to find you if you use your
maiden name for Facebook.
3. Facebook will ask you to complete your profile by asking for your high
school, college and employer. You may skip this step, but we encourage
you to provide information for one or all of the categories. This will help
Facebook users find and identify you.
4. Finally, they will ask you to provide a photo. You can upload a photo
already on your computer, use a webcam,
or skip this step until you find a picture you
like. When selecting an image, remember that
Facebook gives you 200px in width and up to
600px in height. If larger, Facebook will crop
your image down to fit 200px, keeping the
same height ratio. If you do not provide an
image, you will get Facebook’s lovely default:
The Coolwhip Man
5. If prompted to add friends from your e-mail contacts, skip over this process
for now. We will come back to this later.
Facebook will send you a confirmation e-mail to the account you provided. Once
your account is confirmed, you are ready to find your old friends and start making
new ones.
