Signing up with Facebook from your desktop or laptop:

  • Start by pointing your browser to
  • At the right hand side your screen , you’ll find a form consisting of the initial information required to open up your Facebook page. Make sure to provide your primary e-mail address, as your account confirmation as well as other notifications from Facebook will be sent to that mailbox.

  • Hit the green “Sign Up”button  on it.
  • On the next page you’ll need to fill in the security check and click the “Sign up” button.

  • At this point, Facebook will send a confirmation email to the account you have used for registering .

Common Facebook sign up issues and how to solve them? (updated December 2013)

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 inbox and look for the confirmation letter from FB in your junk email folder.
  • 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. Example: admin at your company dot com. To solve this, simply use your real name and or a different email address.
