Common Facebook sign up issues and how to solve them? (updated December 2010)
Here are the common hiccups encountered by our readers when trying to create or validate a Facebook account:
- You already have a Facebook account:Many people forget that once upon a time already set up an account with Facebook. Trying to sign up with a similar email address fires an error from Facebook. To solve this, all you’ll need to do is to recover your Facebook password.
- You didn’t receive the Facebook account confirmation email: Although the sign up process was successful, you didn’t receive a confirmation message. In most cases this is caused by a spam filter you have in place with your email provider. Go to your junk email folder and look for your confirmation note from FB.
- Facebook doesn’t accept either your Name or email address: Perhaps you tried to use a nickname as your First name or your email address format is sort of generic like: admin at your company dot com. To solve this, simply use your real name and or a different email address.
