hi there ifa! i think we can do that if we want to. like me, i do have lots of friends who are using different names on FB! but on my part, nope i don't use fake profile/name in there. but for a bit security purposes, i just set my profile to be private and just accessible to people that i know personally.

that is good to get some privilege. There is so many people who get facebook for bad intention.

I never use a fake profile. I feel there is no point in using fake profiles. just a waste of time. I have the facebook aim is to get in touch with friends and relatives. so I do not need to use a fake profile.

No. The point of facebook is to connect to your friends and love ones. So how will you do that if you use fake information?

I totally agree with this. The main purpose is to connect with those you already know. There are a number of other sites you can go to if you want to meet new people. And creating fake information is basically like living a lie, you aren't who you say you are.

When it started that was the point, but now there are so many applications that people really don't know most of their friends. I play mafia wars. I have about 3000 friends for the game. I've never met any in real life. You are supposed to use your real name, but many people don't because they don't want prospective employers in the future to see all they have said and done.

you can do that if your intention is to gain new network without considering your friends who known you for so long. How would they know that it was you? So ask yourself first. What I can suggest, use your real name first while you are still inviting your friends and when you had gathered them all, that is the time you can change maybe something known to them as well like your nickname.

that is a great suggestion. i just don't like when people see my pics and share them to everyone that i don't recognize.

I don't use a fake profile for my Facebook account which is the main reason why I do not just accept anyone to be my friend. I actually do that for all of my social networking site membership. Though I give my real profile, I don't supply everything to the dot. So that, if ever the company would like to sell the information there, they won't really get all of me, if you know what I mean. I'm not a believe of doing pseudo things that much, most especially if the people I have in my profile are my real friends.

i did it once in the other social networking sites and it worked for me. i got a lot of friends and mostly girls, since i also used a macho and good looking photo of a guy as my profile picture. but with facebook, i don't think i will use a fake profile. i want to be real at facebook so i can also get real people.

that is good neildc. i can see that many user use real than fake profile when dealing with face book. maybe because face book have that slogan: face book helps u 2 connect and share with Ur friends.

hi ifa225 i don't use fake profile , but i'm planning to so i can share my referral links to many people and have many referrals.. in my original account i only accept friend request of people that i know and i block people that only add me because they want to add me on their friend list but if i would have a fake profile i could add them all and they would not know that i am using that account.. have a nice day..

when we have a best friend then him/ her share our pics to her/his friends, the pics no longer be your privacy. i had try to do it, but from friend to friend then to other friend, i don't have any privacy at all.

No I always use my own true identity when I sign in on facebook. I believe this is the only way where you can meet relatives and friends who have been lost contact long ago so I prefer to be genuine and add only those who are related to me. However we can always be using a fake profile.

facebookers now are more aware in adding the unknown person. the genuine profile is the best way to get approve when adding friend.

Hello Ifa!. I am not using fake profile in Facebook. I use my true name so all my friend will notice it me. I had few friend who using fake name, its make me confuse when they request me as a friend, I had to see their picture to recognize who they are. I will add them if I know them from the picture and avatar, but few people even not put their own picture as avatar.
