Facebook is encouraging users to create multiple profiles – but there’s a catch

If you’re someone who likes to browse Facebook and join your favorite group under a different alias, you might be in luck. The Meta Platforms app is testing ways to allow users to create additional profiles. However, there is more than meets the eye.

according to one report by TechCrunch, the social media giant will allow users to create separate profiles for separate content feeds. Thus, this allows users to create a personal profile and connect with friends and family. Another profile can be created for your professional connections. A different profile with an alias name can be created to be used in any group or community.

Facebook confirmed in the report that a user does not need to create a new profile with their real names. However, it must be linked directly to the main profile or personal account.

The company also stated that you will be able to customize the feeds for each of the profiles. This will allow users to keep their personal profiles private while connecting with others using their alias profiles. The new feature is also expected to make switching between profiles easier. There is a limit of up to 5 profiles you can create.
