That's it. The FB will start creating your account and ask you to provide the permission again.

After you provide the permission, you can see a popup which is for the "One tap login." You can choose an option you prefer. In this instance, I am selecting "Not Now" option.

Now, it will show you the "Add Friends" screen. You can send friend requests from there or skip it. In this instance, I am skipping it.

Next, it will show you the screen to add a profile picture. It is up to you to decide about adding the profile picture. If you prefer to add later, just tap "Skip" at top right.

Next, "Remember password" screen. Tap "OK" or "Not Now" as per your wish.

That's it. All set.

Now, you can see the "News Feed," where you will see your friends contents.

Tap the "second" icon at the top of the app to see all friends suggestions. If you did not find your friends there, just use the Search box to find them.

So, go through adding friends, and once they accept your friend requests, you can see their contents on your "News Feed."

Here are some essential things that you need to know:

  • You can ​​​​only create one account per email address.
  • The Facebook personal profile is for the non-commercial use, and it represents a person.
  • Creating more than one personal account is against the Facebook norms.

    You can access Facebook using its web version (which is for computer), Facebook app or mobile version of Facebook (which is for mobile devices).
