Back to basics, y'all! We are going to take a step-by-step look at how to set up a personal Facebook profile. I'm including screen shots and a video tutorial to make everything very clear.
Open your web browser and type Facebook.com into the gray bar at the top. When the Facebook page shows on your screen, move to the SIGN UP section, in the gray middle area on the right. Enter your first name, last name and your email address. Re-enter your email address to confirm it is correct. Enter a password, then enter your birthday. Select your gender, then click the green Sign Up button.
This will move you to the next step where you will see a white box that says Confirm Your Email. Make sure your email address is correct and then you can confirm your email by clicking the blue Connect button. In the image below, the button says Connect to Gmail. If the email is incorrect, you can click Update Contact Info and correct the email address.
A white box will pop up. If this does not pop up, check your pop-up blocker and make sure it is turned off. Click on the correct email address under Choose an account. This will link to the correct email account and activate your Facebook page.
A box will show on the screen that says Account Confirmed. Your email is now verified by Facebook. Click OK to start connecting with friends!
Congratulations, you have set up a Facebook profile page!
