Facebook: Permitting to have up to five Profiles

Catch Facebook Cheaters

Facebook will permit some users to have multiple profiles as part of a test, the company informed today, signaling a significant shift as Meta looks for new ways to enable users to stay on the platform amid improved competition from rivals.

As part of the trial, some Facebook users will have the capacity to create up to four additional profiles connected to their original account.

The idea is that additional profiles can be used for different purposes, like one for friends, co-workers, and others for interacting with curious groups and influencers. Users will still have one account but can switch profiles with a few clicks.

According to spokesperson Leonard Lam, profiles will be subject to Facebook’s policies, and violations on one profile will impact the account.

“To help people tailor their knowledge based on interests and relationships, we’re experimenting with a way for people to have an additional profile conjoined to a single Facebook account. But, of course, anyone who uses Facebook must continue to follow our rules,” Lam says.

Users who create different profiles won’t require to use their real identity for their display name; Lam says, as extended as the stand-in doesn’t violate the platform’s policies and doesn’t include digits or special characters. Facebook’s rule that account holders must utilize their name in real life has been a point of contention for years, prompting legal action in Germany.

Facebook’s shift from a single profile comes as the platform is fighting to keep users, especially young people, as existential threats like TikTok continue to grow. As a result, the company lost daily users for the first time in the company’s history in the fourth quarter of 2021.
