Question about Facebook Social Network

1 Answer

My wife started a Facebook account and used our email address as an alternate. I now can't get into my account because it only recognizes her at our email address. She even deactivated it but when I try and log in, it thinks it's my wife trying to reactivate. How do I get back to my account?

My wife started a Facebook account : does it mean u have created a seperate account in ur name ?

solution : 1 if so , u must have got the activeation mail : please check ur inbox and junk folder . if u dont find the activation/confirmation mail from face book , then looks like ur alternate mail has been used primary contact : 

solution 2 : ask ur wife to login to her accout and then later log off .

(u can view 2  diff account on the same browser , unless 1 of the account is logged off ).

My name is brent welhoelter i try to log in to my facebook acct.but it keeps refering back to my wifes account.like she or something has me blocked from accesing my account.what do i do?when i started this...


Brent, the issue isn't graduation, it's access to your email. Do you still have access to the email account that you signed up with? Facebook is a program that you access via the internet and is not limited by any single computer. Theoretically you can access it from any computer in the world with internet access.
This issue about the computer referring to your wife's account, I'm inferring that you mean when you go to log on, the browser on the computer has saved her email address and password combination and automatically takes you to her account. If this is the case, you can logout of Facebook by clicking on Account in the upper right hand corner.
Once you are back at the logon screen you can enter YOUR email address and password. Here's the part that could be the issue for you. Hopefully, you remember the email address and password so you can log in. If you don't remember the password, for example, you can reset it, but if you no longer have access to that email account, you will have a tough time getting back in using that same account, unless you added an alternate email address or mobile number that can receive texts. You can reset your password via one of these routes. If you are able to get back in and haven't set up alternate contact info, you should do so now.

We want two seperate facebook sign ons but we have the same email address... we are husband and wife and we have had the same email address for years and neither of us wwant to change our email address


Sadly the only solution is to create a new email address for a different account, Facebook does not allow you to use two DIFFERENT accounts on ONE email.


If you are using gmail, it may be possible to register two different Facebook accounts as gmail can be displayed as two different emails. There is a solution for that here:

However, I cannot speak to whether or not this information is reliable.

My wife and I share an email address. Can we have two seperate facebook accounts with one email address?


No, an email address is used to identify one - and one only - account on facebook. One of you will need to open another email account.

If you need a specific word or name in your email address, (example: jones@yahoo.com) try opening an account with another provider such as AOL. (example: jones@aol.com).

Anyway, facebook only allows one (specific) email account for each facebook account.

Two facebook accounts with one email acct?


Get another email address.
http://gmail.com
...is free and has 7Gb, so you can leave it alone for ages and it won't fill up with spam.  Or, you could open an account and in the
Settings --> Forwarding and POP/IMAP
...part, set it so that all emails from your new account are autometically sent on to the address you and your wife share.

If you do open an account; make sure you make a note of the email address and the password somewhere, as it's easy to lose passwords for accounts you don't use often.

Then, of course, you open your facebook with your new gmail account email address.  Job done.

My wife Can't signup for Facebook-has same email address


1) Create a new email for you wife.
2) Make sure that you sign out if you wife want to sign in. Go to facebook main page (http://www.facebook.com) instead the login page.
3) If the steps failed, the easiest way is to clear your private data on the browser.

Cheers

My wall posts are appearing on my wife's profile.


There is a very simple solution to this problem. in your gmail account you should be able to invite her to use gmail and just have her create a gmail account all her own, instead of being on a sub account under you.

I have actually never heard of what you are describing before, and I have been a gmail user for years, well, matter of fact since it started.

If she uses her own separate email account, not a sub account of any kind, that will resolve the issues.
