Facebook currently permits users to create up to four extra profiles on their account.
Each account has the ability to have a unique name, its own messages, individual privacy preferences, and distinct notifications.
At launch, extra profiles will not have access to certain features such as Dating, Marketplace, Professional mode, and payments.
Facebook is granting a common wish to its users by providing the ability to have multiple personas on the platform. This feature allows individuals to have distinct profiles that operate separately, including unique notifications, messages, and privacy preferences. This enables users to present their authentic selves to friends and family while also maintaining a separate identity for the public eye.
Users are allowed to create up to four additional personal profiles using a single Facebook account. That means you can have five profiles on Facebook, including your main profile and the four additional ones you can create. Profile switching will work just like it does on Instagram, without needing to log in or out.
Certain functions such as Dating, Marketplace, Professional mode, and payments will not be accessible for any extra profiles you make upon release. However, you will still be able to use Messaging for these additional profiles on the Facebook app and website. Messenger support will also be implemented in the near future.
