If you use a false name in your Facebook profile, your account will be terminated without notice because of violating Facebook's terms and conditions.
Step 2: Complete a Security Check
Because of security measures, Facebook is running a security check to make sure that you are a human, so, it is required to type in CAPTCHA details. After entering both words, click on the green Sign Up button to continue.

Step 3: Search Friends Through Email Contacts
You can skip this step to continue, unless you want to check how many friends of yours are already on Facebook. I highly suggest to skip this step at this time.
Step 4: Fill out Your Profile Info
This step is not important, you can fill in those fields (high school, college, and company) after finishing the sign-up process. Skip this step to continue.
Step 5: Set Your Profile Picture
You can either upload a photo from your computer or snap a photo with your webcam in this step, details below:
- Click "Upload a Photo" then click on "Browse" button and select a picture that you want to use.
- Click "Take a Photo" then Facebook will detect if any available cameras on your system.
Whatever you choose, click "Save" to continue. If you don't want to set your Facebook profile picture at this time, you may skip this step. It's important to set your picture, your friends who have not met each other for a long time may recognize you through your picture even though he/she has forgotten your name.
Sign Up for Facebook - You Have Done It.
You now have registered a new account on Facebook successfully, but notice that there is a yellow bar on top of the page, because your email address has not been verified by Facebook side.
The last step to complete Facebook sign up process.
To verify the email address, you need to login your email and view the confirmation email sent from Facebook which contains a link that you must click on. If you can't find any confirmation email sent from Facebook in INBOX folder, check SPAM folder again.
