have you ever made an fake account on facebook.?
« on: June 26, 2012, 09:19:12 AM »
I have several fake facebook accounts that I use for online marketing. The reason I use fake accounts is because I don't want my personal account to get compromised due to sudden changes in FB's rules. Most of the online marketers have more than one Facebook account and blackhat marketers use hundreds and even thousands of accounts for marketing.

I use a fake facebook account too because I don't want to have my info stolen by promoting my site to a bunch of people who I don't know.

I make fake Facebook accounts for website fan pages. I don't really like people looking at my personal Facebook account, even if they don't have me as a friend.

Can't you set it up though so that only certain people see your account, not all your friends but just a few?

Yeah, but even then, I still don't really feel comfortable. I don't know, I guess it's just a personal thing.

It isn't like fake but I always make new account for my new site to make new page because of security reasons.So,I don't say it fake but just new real ids.

I have not made a fake account, but I have made a account that I can tell is a 'duplicate'. I originally intended it to be made an account through which I could post my facebook statuses for my website. For some personal touch, I made my own name and started adding my online friends. After a few years, I closed the site, abandoning the account eventually.

Instead of using the old one, I made myself a new account for my personal use. I am not sure if its qualifies as a fake account but I do have two accounts in facebook :D

Wow, I never thought about doing that before, but it does make sense to try something like that. I mean I just figured that if something happened to mine, I would just cut the losses that I had.
