We require everyone to use their real first and last names so that you always know who you’re connecting with. To keep our community safe and trustworthy, we block the use of certain names when you create an account. This helps prevent people from creating fake or malicious accounts that may hurt your ability to enjoy sharing with your friends.
If you're trying to sign up for an account to use as a personal profile (timeline):
Make sure your name follows our name standards. If your name doesn't violate any of these rules and you're still having trouble signing up for a personal profile (timeline), let us know.
If you're trying to create a profile (timeline) for a business, product, pet, or public figure:
Facebook profiles (timelines) are designed for real people to connect and share with each other. If you want to represent something other than yourself on Facebook (ex: your band, business, or pet), you can create a Facebook Page.
