If you want to connect with your friends, you can open an account. In this article, I will teach you how to open a Facebook account for free. You can create a personal and business account here.
Your personal Facebook profile
This is the most common type of Facebook account and perfect for your free time and leisure. From here, you can share your interests, some personal data, and keep in touch with friends and family, even those that you thought you wouldn’t hear from again. This process is easy and fast.

- Fourthly, supply your password.
- Also, enter your date of birth and gender.
- If you entered your email correctly, you will get an email from Facebook requesting to confirm your account through a link.

How to configure your personal Facebook profile or account
After creating your account, add a touch of color to your profile. This involves:
- Adding a profile picture. This will help your friends to recognize you easily.
- Search for friends. Work colleagues, ex-classmates, etc. All of them have a place.

You can only create a business account when you already have a personal account. The two processes are simple and the same. There is only one difference which is the name you give the business account.
