How to go about creating a new account for Facebook and getting started.
Ready to join Facebook, the world's most popular social network? Setting up an account is easy and best of all, it's free. Most social networks use your existing email address as proof of identity, and Facebook well is no exception. If you have a Google account, that's handy because Gmail is accepted at all major social networking sites, but any email address will work.
Use your web browser to visit Facebook.com. You'll see a log in screen ready and waiting for your details. Enter your first name, last name, and the email address. You'll need to put in your email address again as a confirmation. Choose a password. It needs to be at least eight letters long. Now you can enter a few items for your profile page. You'll probably want to skip this and come back and do it later.
