Tip & How-To about Facebook Social Network
If you have ever been tagged then it is probably by a friend on facebook and unless you have been asleep for the last 4 years in case you didn't know everyone has gone facebook page crazy even the largest companies in the world have a page or two.
So how can I get an account and create my first group or page or link it to my mobile or other applications, well read on...
Facebook Account Creation:
All you need is a email account that you still have access to so you can link it to your facebook profile. Most users have their primary e-mail account given by their ISP and use this but you can link other e-mail thay you might have.
First navigate to the index page on facebook and fill in the information like the example below this will show you what might happen if you try to register on behalf of a child or underage potential user.
This example will not work as the potential user is not old enough and you will receive the following error this is because the user is not even 5 yet the minimum age is 14.
If you try to refresh the page in the same browser you will not be able to re-attempt the sign up you will have to use a different browser or you might have to restart you PC and also clear your cache I recommend using CCleaner and then start the process again.
When you enter your details you will also be required to enter a randomly created CAPTCHA this is to prevent auto account creation bots.
Then it is a simple 3 step process where you can try to find your friends or enter your work, school or university details and even upload your desired profile picture you can skip these steps and go straight to your home page and then your account is created
You can then start to find friends and join groups and make your own pages and start using all the applications that you may need. The easiest way to do this is to use the embedded search engine within your new profile page, powered by Microsoft's BING engine.
Facebook Group Creation:
This is a great way to create fun and interesting groups for you, your friends and all those people yet to meet they are limited and if you require more scope then I suggest that a facebook page might be the way forward. One of its most powerful functions is enable you to send messages to all your members.
If for any reason your account is suspended then you will loose the administration rights to your group so its a good idea to promote a good friend to admin status to prevent the control going to someone else.
Facebook Page Creation:
If you want to join pages that have already been created and you know the name of even part of the name then type it in a search the example shown below is for www.windowstipsclub.co.uk @ facebook that gives you hints and tips on how to best use the Windows Operating Systems by Microsoft if you want to join all you need to do is click the LIKE button and you've joined it.
If you still want to create you own page follow THIS link and it will send you to the main page creation
