How To Create a Facebook ProfilePRESENTED BY: STEPHANIE PATTON
Search for Facebook URLTurn your computer on and launch your internet browser (i.e.Internet Explorer, FireFox, Google Chrome, etc.)Once your internet browser has loaded, search for: https://www.facebook.com
Register for a Facebook Account Under the words “Sign Up” on the homepage, put your first name in the first box and your last name in the second box. Next enter a valid email address and re-enter that email in the box below. This is so that Facebook can contact you for confirmation of your registration and in future send you updates from your profile. Next enter a password of your choice, your sex, and your birthday. Then hit the Sign Up button at the bottom of the page.
Confirm Your eMail Facebook will now tell you it has sent a confirmation email to your email account. You must now login to your email. Open the confirmation email from Facebook, click on the link it provides and it will take you to you new Facebook profile.
Add A Profile Picture Click on the Picture tab to upload a picture from your hard drive that other people will be able to see as your profile picture. Click Browse, find a picture on your hard drive, tick the box to certify that you own the rights to the image, then click Upload Picture to confirm.
Complete Your Profile InformationThe next step is filling out basic profile info: Highschool, college, and employer. You may choose to fillthis out, or skip this step.
Find Friends Youll now have to go through a series of steps to personalize your profile. First, Facebook will offer to scour your email address book for addresses of people that also have Facebook profiles, giving you a chance to add them as your friends. Simply enter your email address and password and Facebook will find your friends. Select the ones you want to add by ticking the boxes to the left of their pictures and then click Add to Friends at the bottom. After that, you’ll have the option of choosing friends from your email address book who arent on Facebook and sending them Facebook invitations.
Find Classmates Click the Find My Classmates button. Next, choose the country, city, name of your school, and the class year (if you are searching for a specific person, just type in their name), then click Search for Classmates. Now select anyone you recognize or want as a friend and click Add to Friends. You may have to write the text from the security box into the text box to confirm.
