Before You Sign Up
Facebook is a free site and will never require that you pay to continue using the site. You do, however, have the option of making purchases related to games, apps and gifts. In addition, if you choose to use Facebook from your mobile phone, keep in mind that you will be responsible for any fees associated with internet usage and/or text messaging as determined by your mobile carrier.

We don't allow joint accounts. Additionally, you can only sign up for one Facebook account per email address.
Since each account belongs to one person, we require everyone to use their real name on their account. This way, you always know who you're connecting with. Learn more about our name policies.
You received this email because a Facebook member is inviting you to join Facebook. Facebook allows people to send invitations to their contacts by entering an email address or by uploading their contacts.
If you're already registered for Facebook, your friend may have used an email address of yours that isn't currently linked to your Facebook account. If you'd like, you can add this email address to your existing Facebook account to ensure that you won't get Facebook invitations sent to that address in the future.
If you don't have a Facebook account and would like to create one, you can use this email to start the registration process.
If you don't want to receive invites from your friends, you can use the unsubscribe link in the footer of the email.
Creating Your New Account
If you don't have a Facebook account, you can sign up for one in a few easy steps. To sign up for a new account, enter your name, birthday, gender and email address into the form at www.facebook.com. Then pick a password.
After you complete the sign up form, we'll send an email to the address you provided. Just click the confirmation link to complete the sign up process.
To sign up for Facebook you need to enter either a mobile number or an email account (or both).
From a mobile device:
- Go to facebook.com or open the Facebook app
- Find the Create Account link
- Fill in your real name and birthday
- Enter your mobile number or email address
- Pick a password
- Click Sign Up
If you sign up with a mobile number, we recommend adding an email address to your account as well.
From a computer:
If you don't have a Facebook account, you can sign up for one in a few easy steps. To sign up for a brand new account, enter your name, birthday, gender and email address into the form on www.facebook.com and pick a password.
If you already have a Facebook account, you can log into your account from the same page. Just enter your email address and password at the top of the page and click Log In.
When you create a new password, make sure that it's at least 6 characters long. Try to use a complex combination of numbers, letters, and punctuation marks. If the password you entered isn't strong enough, try mixing together uppercase and lowercase letters or making the password longer.
The password you create should be easy for you to remember but hard for someone else to figure out. For extra security, your Facebook password should be different than other passwords that you use to log into other places, like your email or bank account.
