How to Create A Fake Facebook Account

Why a Fake?

It is a question I am often asked. Why would you ever want a fake account? To be honest, I have four facebook accounts. A real one, a fake one, the first fake one's sister, and a third fake account. The goal of having fake accounts is to make them realistic. Facebook does not like fake accounts and is known for deleting them. If your account even seems fake or if people are posting requests to the facebook office, your account will be deleted. In this hub are tips on how to create a good functioning fake account.

Creating A Fake Account

Every account on facebook must have a different email. No two accounts are allowed to share one email. So to have a new account, you must create a new email as well. Try to make a yahoo or gmail account. They are easy to make, only five minutes. Try to put the fake character's name into the email address. It seems more businesslike, realistic, and responsible.

For both the email and facebook account, you would have to come up with a name, birthday, place of birth, etc. Try to choose a unique name that is easy to remember or a name that means a lot to you. Pick a place you would love to visit or you wish you could live in. With the birthday, try to keep it in the same month of your own birthday. This way it is easier to remember.

The Picture

A major point in having a productive fake account, is the main picture. Do you want to be appealing to others? Then get a picture that is appealing. Do you want a specific person to talk to you? Find out their type and find a picture like it. You want to get a photo that is easy to find more of. Do not make the person too plain. The best thing you can do is get multiple photos of the same person. Do not add all of them at once. Change the main photo once every four months. This way you can keep it up without searching frantically for a new photo for over a year.

The Character's History

When making a fake account, you have to focus on creating the person you will be portraying. Are you creating an individual for someone else to like? Are you creating an alter-ego? Think of the person who want to be. Remember though, sometimes it is good to be vague. You do not want to make it sound as if you are too easy.

  • Job - Pick something you are knowledgeable about. Possibly something you have done before. Know the terminology, functions, and methods. Also focus on what shifts you should be working. Do not get online while "at work" or just tell them that you are supposed to be working. It all depends on the personality of your character.
  • Education - Put the job that the character is doing in mind. What are the education requirements to be in their position? What college could they have gone to? Where they in any groups during college? Why were they interested in that area of education possibilities?
  • Family - Do they have family or are they having issues with their family? If you want to save some time, claim the person is adopted or is having a fight with the family. If you want the page to look quite realistic, find someone else or just create another fake facebook account. One of the ways I have created my accounts to be realistic are that all of my fake accounts are linked through their history. Two are sisters while the other is a childhood friend.
  • Friends - The best choice is to make another facebook account to be friends with the first fake account. You can make an interesting past this way and both accounts will have a lifelong friend. If not, your real account could be the fake accounts best friend. But if not, your other choice is to make new friends online.

Posting

Post new pictures of a purchase, your home, or your office every once in a while. Say every other month. This keeps everything appearing fresh, new, and real. Try to keep the same style: contemporary, fancy, frills, etc. Consistency in what you have is the best.

When writing to friends, try to have the same sayings. For example, "thanks!", "my pleasure", or "anytime". Again, consistency. You want to seem like the same person each time you get onto the account.

I was curious why you would write on this....I have no desire to do this. I would rather keep my integrity intact.


lburmaster profile image

lburmaster 4 years ago from Houston, TX Author

Honestly, I think your comment, Tricia is rather cute. That is fine and I know most people don't understand it. I just enjoy having a wider range of friends and possibilities from the security of my home. I am sure you have other past times to keep you satisfied, as I do as well. Calligraphy, bike riding, archery, working out, etc. I hope you enjoy them.

Maybe I worded it badly. No offence intended. The title made me wonder why you would want to do this and I am not sure my query was fully answered. I am one of those kind of people some people hate as I like to be open and transparent. I can understand privacy too however. I am looking at a domain name for a wee online shop but I don't want my home on who is. So I kinda understand... I think. In terms of facebook, I guard what I do with it and say - rather than put all my personal details on it. So I don't need to create a deceptive web of info.


lburmaster profile image

lburmaster 4 years ago from Houston, TX Author

Not all of the information is deceptive. Think about a job you always wanted to do, a hobby you enjoyed that you no longer do. You can focus your fake profile around these things and become involved in them more than you are now. By having them as a job or favorite hobby, people will talk to you about them, thus you learn more to sound realistic. It's a forced way of learning.

Plus the entire thing is about security. Where you are, what you really do, your age, even your hair color, everything is hidden and secured. You just have to keep it that way. It's actually not too difficult.

Tricia Ward 4 years ago from Scotland

That is fine....It does not sit quite right with me that is all. There was a case in the UK recently where a young boy had created fake accounts in an attempt to get someone to stab him. He created various personas and "groomed another boy" and it did result in a stabbing. I am not saying that you would be of that inclination - I just don't like the idea of someone assisting someone else to create a fake identity and make it realistic. Not everyone would use this info in an "innocent" way....sorry but that is just my view :)


lburmaster profile image

lburmaster 4 years ago from Houston, TX Author

I have heard other stories as well, some resulting in suicide and myspace. However, using an accout for dangerous use is just foolish. If the person who created the account wanted to be stabbed, he probably should have gotten worse such as a slow and painful death achieved hours later.

And your view is fine. It is easily understood how you would dislike the goal of the hub and I don't blame you at all, nor myself. I only provide information, if someone wishes to tweek and add onto the information, then it is their choice. Information is everywhere, you just have to know how to use it for the greater good. On one of my fake accounts, I help a few veterans decide with medication is causing bad side effects and what they need to talk to their doctors about. As I said, it's how you use the information.

Hi lburmaster,

At age 19 you do sound like very experienced.:)

I believe makes sense to fake your personal info since almost every website is at risk of being hacked.

Thanks for sharing your ideas & knowledge. I want to add my 2 cents to make it easy to generate fake info.

Keep up the good Hubs.

Good info. Wee bit freaked by some of the comments here but the reason I stumbled across this page is because I'm interested in creating a fake Facebook account - not because I want to stab someone(!) but because where I work is a sensitive issue and, when I had a real Facebook account, I had "friends" who made rather insensitive comments which I wouldn't want to be associated with... Let's be honest, Facebook or not, anyone who intends to "groom" or stab anyone is going to find a way...

Are you dating somebody, but haven’t met them face to face? Do you really like this person, but are afraid to meet him/her? When they meet you will they discover that there is a secret you’ve been hiding? Do you have an online identity that is a little different than the real you? (Do you wish others could see how awesome your personality it if they could get past your tattoos/looks/health/or anything else?)

I'd love to talk, at no charge. I’m an online dating expert, who has also had a similar story. I fell for someone I was dating online, and had a hard time letting them know the real me… Just want to connect with like minded people

I have never dated anyone I've started talking with online. My online identity is a little different from me and I'm fine with that. My boyfriend of two years is fine with my choice of having three fake facebook pages as long as I do not meet any of them face-to-face. I agree with his decision because I have high anxiety and OCD. None of them know my location, contact information, or even my real name.

Please note that the signs used in this blog are not true in noticing a fake facebook account. Only an idiot would not update it, only have one picture, and search for friends. I have 15 pictures of each account, update them at least weekly, and my friend's come to me.

I see having a fake account as a personal escape, not a trap or way to use a male.

I think facebook is a disaster that is waiting to happen. The time will come when what you thought was innocent personal information will be used in a court of law to put you behind bars at worst or end up costing money. Insurance companies could 'analyze' your FB history and conclude you are a risk. They already do this, FB just gives them more ammunition.

I know people who go ballistic if asked to hand over their drivers license for a few minutes, but are quite happy to put their entire lives out there in FB.


lburmaster profile image

lburmaster 4 years ago from Houston, TX Author

I entirely agree with you. Which is why I use it to look at employers, co-workers, keep an eye on old friends, and just have fun with it. If someone is going to be this foolish, I want a front row seat.

You shouldn't have to give a cell phone number. Look at the bottom or top of the page. It might say skip or move ahead. Also, I don't think you should have a fake account. You don't seem to have the right personality to handle it.

I know plenty of role players and am interested in the reason for why you role play. If you have been deleted from facebook, then someone has been complaining about you. You should be focusing on why someone would complain about you and how you could change that so to fly under the radar.

roleplay? 4 years ago

I enjoy sexual roleplay. I don't contact those i don't think would also enjoy it, and i also have immense respect for all types of people no matter what. I would never harm another person on purpose. I enjoy literotica.com for this type of roleplay, however it is not mobile friendly. Thus, i utilize a fake facebook account and engage in conversations with likeminded people. I use a fake name with no photo of a person. Is this abuse of facebook? Maybe... Is it wrong? I wonder...


lburmaster profile image

lburmaster 4 years ago from Houston, TX Author

I don't believe that is wrong. Mainly because I have about seven friends who use facebook solely for that purpose. Individuals do that all the time and you are definitely not alone.

Does your fake account have any connection to your real account? If the two are friends, there might be individuals that wander over and ask to be a friend on your real account.

The term "Fake Facebook Account" would be considered... well I can't say rude... "scary??" by most parents who would like Facebook to be a safe place for their kids. That's really all I'm saying.


lburmaster profile image

lburmaster 4 years ago from Houston, TX Author

Did I ever say someone should get a fake Facebook account to bother some ignorant children? There is no point in friending children and that should never be a reason for a fake profile. Please do not leave any more comments and never visit my page again.

roleplay? 4 years ago

mcbel, what you've done here is like posting an article about Bountiful BC on a Mormon discussion group. it prpves why people are afraid to share their real info. if ppl like you knew i liked to roleplay with consenting adults, they'd presume i was interested in teenagers and hurting girls by lying to them and manipulating them. i just like to please a partner in a way that also pleases me, and vixe versa. that way is to talk about our sexual interests online without fear of people judging me for it. im not into young kids, but talking about what i do like leads you to make child molestor references. pretty fucked up if u ask me


roleplay? 4 years ago

i might as well say your opinions here are wrong because you think blink 182 only write incredible songs and spell Dave Grohl's name with two L's. There's no connection, just like your article, other than each of us looking for reasons why the other are wrong


mcbel profile image

mcbel 4 years ago from New Hampshire

The article proves that most people would feel safer letting their kids use Facebook if there were not a select few who do target kids. I never said you do. Do not preach that I make unrelated references and then cite my spelling mistakes in another hub. Iburmaster asked me to leave her page so I will. Sorry for continuing to post stuff. Roleplay? I've got no problem with your views so there is no point on having an endless argument on some poor girl's hub. If you weren't offended by my post, you would probably see the connection. My intention was not to offend you. My first post was "As long as your reason for doing this isn't to meet small children..." Basically implies that ANY OTHER REASON is fine by me. Go for it. Sorry Iburmaster. Just trying to illustrate a concern of mine and several people I know.


lburmaster profile image

lburmaster 4 years ago from Houston, TX Author

The article proves there are individuals who don't want to take the time to truly protect their children when I could easily tell them what to look for. For example, my sister was emailing her friend for a good 15 minutes when the comments changed. The grammer became flawless, correct spelling, and the complete opposite of her friend's. Obviously the girls mother decided to take over her child's email. Now my sister is upset that her friend would give her bad advise when it was really her friend's mother. After explaining this, my sister is now fine and understands. Now if only that foolish mother could learn some manners. Your concern is not necessary.


mcbel profile image

mcbel 4 years ago from New Hampshire

My concern is necessary. I'm apologize for vocalizing it here. I agree that parents don't always do a good job of monitoring and teaching their children how to be safe on Facebook. That is absolutely true, but parents can not monitor everything their kids do. The people to blame are the select individuals who use fake Facebook accounts to find kids. There is plenty of proof of this happening, and it is an issue. I'm not saying that anyone who has posted on this hub (especially not you as I read your hub and I understand your reasoning for making fake Facebook accounts) is a predator.


lburmaster profile image

lburmaster 4 years ago from Houston, TX Author

Parents can easily monitor their child's email, facebook, and twitter accounts. They just need to start early and teach their child how to notice the little things that prove who a person truly is online. It is not difficult. I use the same points in watching over my brother and sister's accounts for my mother. Will you just stop. I'm getting extremely irritated with you because you are arguing with me over something that I don't care about. I get more furious with the parents who get on their child's accounts and start talking to their child's friends.


IllusionQueen 4 years ago

I don't see what's wrong with fake accounts... I blame the FB apps... most of them tell you that you need friends to complete a quest... how stupid!! Some games have these, special, limited-time collectables, and the only way to obtain them is to get your friends to send them to you. Another game doesn't allow you to learn new skills if you don't have a certain amount of friends... I only have a few friends, and they are not always online, so I can never complete a collectable in time... another reason why I like fake accounts is because I absolutely LOOVE roleplaying!!! x"33 I made some fake accounts with the names and information of my charries... xPP x)

Oh and btw... what if the company behind FB comes here and reads this? Will they figure out who we are on FB? And delete my account just because they know I have fake accounts?? :(


lburmaster profile image

lburmaster 4 years ago from Houston, TX Author

They are busy deleting accounts already. Plenty of accounts are deleted for complaints, harasing others, unacceptable photos, sexual groups, etc. Individuals who share sexual photos normally go through two or three fake accounts in a year.

Hey all, loved the article as we also have a bunch of fake accounts for many reasons, one being simply a need to have alternate views of life. Nothing like being a jewish guy from New Mexico and an Albanian Girl living in Montreal to have different views of social media.

Anyway, we have created a 10 step process that now includes a solution for phone verification !

Please tell me there is some way to "confirm" my account! I have had the account for several months - not years like many others - but never had any issues. Facebook is telling me that I MUST confirm my real name in order to access my account again. There has to be a way around this. There simply has to be...any suggestions? This is the first time it has happened, I have real pictures of myself, I have work and education listed - vague, but listed, and I only used a nickname is my first name rather than my birth name. Professional reasons among others. Please help. Thanks!

The only confirmation you need for a Facebook account consists of your email. However, the reason for the rules you are going through consists of Facebook's newest attempt to stop fake accounts, drag queens, etc. How are they asking you to "confirm" your name on the account?

You can pick your friends from anywhere. Join a group. After a few discussions (luckily, just one), you can find some friends. It can be the dream job you wish you had, or the crazy cat lady you always have been, or the writing fanatic who only wants their regular account for family matters.
