Well I made a facebook account for my dog as a joke and then promptly lost the password. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only idiot out there making facebooks for their pets.

A bunch of friends and I made one for an inanimate plastic owl. You know, that kind you put on fence posts to scare squirrels away

I've made various fake accounts for testing at work. Now I use them to help myself out at SimCity social

Ha!

The dogs probably know the passwords better than most users.

I read that as, "Facebook is full of ponies". Dyslexia strikes again!
 
2012-08-02 04:05:18 PM  
Only 8.7%. I think their numbers are rather low. I know at least 10 people that have more than one facebook account. One of them as 50.

2012-08-02 04:07:42 PM  
I'm about to make a couple. With more and more companies making offers contingent on liking their facebook page or adding their app, thus spamming my feed and the feeds of others, I imagine a growing network of accounts designed only for this.

Our family uses a fake account to check up on the older kids that are on FB.

We frequently check the kids accounts to make sure the privacy settings are still set for "Friends only"

One kid re-set his settings and had his account shut down for six months. He's been good since then.

I have my personal account and then I have a few different accounts from when I used to play various games.
 
2012-08-02 04:20:07 PM  
How about the 40% or so that are duplicate people using different email addresses? Facebook has been lying about its number of users since day 1.
 
2012-08-02 04:24:19 PM  
I use Facebook far more often under my fake account than while logged in as myself. It just feels weird to state my actual feelings and opinions on the Internet using my real name.

I guess because I've been online since the nearly the beginning of the Web, and anonymity was a huge deal for most of its history.
 
2012-08-02 04:24:39 PM  
My friend's little brother is one of those, constantly swapping out his page with his RP character and then complaining that no one friends him back but fellow Transformers nuts.

If I didn't think he'd beat up my friend's mom in perceived retaliation, I'd unfriend him in a heartbeat. Ah, the mentally ill.
 
2012-08-02 04:24:57 PM  
If I was inclined to penmanship I would have created a Facebook account and created a lot of drama on it.
Maybe even create supporting characters and have them interact.
It would be fun to create a Maury Povich type episode.

I wouldn't be surprised if people have already done this.

Maybe Facebook can sponsor a couple of writers to do this for a year then announce it. It would be fun to see the aftermath, especially from people who 'friended' them and took sides.

I feel like people already do this especially with things like failbooking and autocorrect websites being around. Some of that stuff is too ridiculous to believe

hey, don't call my family idiots. I get more spam to join cakeville, mobwars, or whatever Zynga game from my farking cousins cats, dogs and fish. Just by looking at my facebook wall I can tell who in my family is unemployed.

/Actually, my dog has a facebook profile that serves as my proxy since I am an educator and don't want to deal with rejecting friend requests from students.

ARTHUR: What?

GALAHAD: He says they've already got one!

ARTHUR: Are you sure he's got one?

GUARD: Oh, yes, it's very nice-a [To Other Guards] I told him we already got one.

OTHER GUARDS: [Laughing]

ARTHUR: Well, um, can we come up and have a look?

GUARD: Of course not! You are Facebook types-a!

Huh? How old are you to worry about your friend's little brother beating up your friend's mom? Turn him on your knee and beat his ass. You are the adult.

Unless you are not.

My friends are assholes. They started a Facebook page for an anti-computer type that has no idea it exsists. His pic is there and the prankster keeps updating things. Some of the personal comments and replies 'he' makes are pretty sick/funny.

That's not cool, and you're as much an asshole as your 'friends'. That shiat does not need to be encouraged. Especially now, when your current and future employment can depend on what's on those pages.

With a fake account he can plant the valuable crops, like marijuana, without his parents knowing.

It actually makes sense to have a clean account that you can show to any HR types who think they need to vet your social network pages for illicit drugs or dumb behaviour.

Oh yeah. This is what my personal FB account consists of. Never anything political, never anything anti-religion of any type, pictures of me in a farking church, pictures of me in various suits, a "fun" picture of me on my boat with a bottle of water, etc. My "likes" are Christianity and unicorns.

Hold up there trolly...that's just awesome. I do not (nor will I) have a facebook account (or whatever you kids call it), but that's still funny. I don't think the luddite is in jeopardy of missing out on a J.O.B. for any reason other than being anti-computer. Pretty sure the foreman down at the coalmine is not checking facebook credentials before he send another willing participant down the hole of doom.
