How to register on Facebook (Web)

Let’s start from the beginning, that is,  how to access Facebook  for the first time when you are not yet registered on the social network. To create a personal account on Facebook, all you have to do is connect to the main page of the site and fill in the form on it.

You will therefore be asked to indicate your name and surname , the mobile number and email address to be used for the creation of your account, your date of birth and gender . In addition, you will be asked to indicate a password to be used to access the account you are about to create.

Once you have entered all the required data, you will need to click on the green Create Account button  to confirm your willingness to join Facebook.

Then, follow the procedures that you will see on the screen for identity verification: you may in fact be asked to type in the confirmation code arrived via SMS or click on the link that will have been sent to you by email, depending on the data you have provided in the phase of registration.

Once you have confirmed your identity, you may be asked to connect your e- mail address  to the social network, in order to more easily find your friends on it, to enter your profile information and to choose (or take) a photo to use as a profile picture.

Then proceed following the Facebook instructions that will guide you in customizing your profile, or, to learn more about the topic and get more information on the entire procedure, you can read my guide on  how to sign up for Facebook .

The Facebook registration procedure can also be performed in a very simple and immediate way from Android or iOS mobile devices.

Consequently, once you have started the Facebook application on your device, press the Subscribe to Facebook item located at the bottom and then, after pressing the Start button , follow the wizard of the social network, indicating all the data required for the creation of your account.

How to access Facebook (alternative method)


Once we have addressed the resolution of the main problems related to accessing Facebook, we now come to more complicated issues.

In the following lines I will tell you  how to access Facebook  when the site is inaccessible for technical problems, or, as often happens in offices and schools, it is blocked by system administrators to avoid distractions in the workplace / study.

In the first case, there is not much to do. Even Facebook can occasionally go offline and there is nothing a common user can do to “bring him back to life”. The only thing you can try to do is access the social network using alternative addresses:  m.facebook.com  and  beta.facebook.com  which correspond respectively to the mobile version and to the experimental version of the site where the unpublished functions.

If these suggestions don’t work, you can try alternative solutions; I told you in detail in my guide entitled ” Problems with Facebook ” in which I dealt with the resolution of the main problems with the social network.

If, on the other hand, you are in a situation that refers to the second case mentioned, that is, the one in which you are unable to access Facebook because the social network has been voluntarily blocked by the system administrators of your computer, know that all is not lost.

There are hopes of being able to successfully access the social network but you have to turn to the Web Proxy services  and try to access Facebook through the latter.

In this regard, one of the Web Proxy services that I recommend you use to access Facebook in an alternative way is the Hide Me website . All you have to do to use it is connect to its main page and, in the Enter Web Adress text field , type in the Facebook URL ( www.facebook.com ).

Then you can use the Proxy location drop-down menu to customize the navigation via proxy; then press the Visit anonymously button and you will be redirected to the social network website.

More information on using these proxy tools can be found in my guide on  how to get past blocked sites .

I remind you that it is possible to  return to Facebook  even if you have canceled or deactivated your account (maybe you did it in a moment of anger). For example, if you have temporarily disabled your profile and want to take it back, all you have to do is connect to the main page of the social network and log in as you have always done. Your account will be restored immediately and you can start using it right away.

If, on the other hand, you have carried out the process of definitive cancellation of your account , but then you have changed your mind, you can regain possession of your personal profile, but you must do so within a maximum period of  14 days .

Within this period of time you can in fact connect to the main page of the social network, log in as usual and cancel the process of deleting the profile by clicking on the Cancel delete button   that will be shown to you.
