If you want to create a Facebook page or want to manage a FB page, you have to have a personal Facebook account as well. But fortunately, there is a way to create one and still don’t show yourself publicly.
In this short Facebook page tutorial, we are going to show you the process of creating a Facebook business page, even if you are not on Facebook currently.
Do you need a personal account to create a Facebook business page?
A couple of years ago it was possible to create Facebook business pages without having a personal Facebook profile but this is no longer possible.
So you might have found some tutorials online that show you how to create a Facebook page without a Facebook account, but those processes no longer work, so don’t bother replicating them.
You have to create a personal Facebook account if you want to create or manage a Facebook page. But I understand that you might not want to create a personal Facebook profile because of privacy or any similar reasons.
But don’t worry, we are going to show you two ways how you can create a Facebook profile and still stay completely anonymous.
Create and manage a Facebook page without a profile (2 methods)
There are two kinds of workarounds if you don’t want to have a public personal profile:
- create a Facebook profile with not your real name
- create a Facebook profile but make yourself as invisible as it is possible
Facebook profile with a fake name

You can make your Facebook profile by going to facebook.com and click on ‘Create New Account’
Risks related to Facebook page without a real Facebook profile
Although you will have no problem creating a Facebook account without your real name, you have to keep in mind that there is a risk related to this method.
Facebook’s Terms of Service doesn’t support creating a Facebook Account with a fake name and they are also working hard to delete hundreds of millions of fake accounts and bots.
So there is a risk that they might require you to identify yourself with an ID and if you are not using your real name that could be a problem.
Create a Facebook profile but make it private
So instead of using the fake Facebook profile method, we would recommend the following.
You should still make a Facebook account with your real name, but you can make your Facebook account completely private.
