Facebook Users Can Now Create 5 Different Profiles Linked With Single Account! How Will It Work?
In an ongoing development, the social media giant Facebook has been working on letting users create multiple profiles tied to a single account.
Facebook has been reported to be testing a feature which will allow a user to create up to five different profiles under a single account, and the user need not use their real name in these sub created profiles.
We will talk in detail regarding the feature and what can be expected from it further in the article.
Facebook to Allow Creating Multiple Profiles
Users of the social media major Facebook can now make multiple accounts under their main account, which can be used to separate their information and interests in a grouped manner.
For instance, different profiles can be created dedicated to specific groups they would like to connect with, including feed exclusive to friends, family, work and more.
All the users would have to do is tap and switch between the different segregated profiles.
“To help people tailor their experience based on interests and relationships, we’re testing a way for people to have more than one profile tied to a single Facebook account,” said the company’s spokesperson Leonard Lam in an email to TechCrunch.
However, the tech giant has also underlined that users will have to abide by a set of rules while using the multiple profile features.
What Does One Need to Take Care of While Using Multiple Users Feature?
As mentioned, Facebook has directed that anyone using the currently-tested feature needs to follow certain rules.
The additional profiles will be subject to certain policies, which will make sure that one does not misrepresent their identity or impersonate others, considering that they do not need to use their real names in such added profiles.
Instead, users can choose any profile name and username, as long as it is unique and doesn’t use any numbers or special characters, stated the report. However, the main profile must continue to use the real name.
“If someone repeatedly violates the company’s policies using one of their additional profiles, Facebook’s systems will recognize which profile was violating and take appropriate action, such as removing the additional profile or all profiles, including the main account,” read the report.
