You and your best friend have a lot of fun playing jokes on each other. You have not yet “disposed of” the last joke against you and you have already had an idea on how to respond to it: create a new profile Facebook, setting for the latter a first name fantasy, and then send joking messages to your “buddy” with this new account.
However, since you opened your profile on the well-known social network of the Meta group, so much time has passed that now you no longer remember the steps to take to repeat the same operation and now you really need a hand to fulfill your intent, right? In this case I can provide you with the help you need, but let me make an important clarification: creating an account with a name other than your own goes against the terms of the Facebook service.
This means that an account created in this way can be suspended or deleted from the social network. How do you say?

Well, but don’t tell me then that I didn’t warn you and know that I do not take any responsibility for how you will use the information contained in this tutorial (in this regard, please, do not pretend to be other real people, because it would be even more serious and you could also run into legal problems if you use a fictitious account of this type for less than noble purposes)! That said, the operation to be carried out will require only a few short steps and can be performed both on smartphones and tablets, and on computers. Find everything explained below.
