Facebook is Testing Letting Users Have Up To Five Profiles Tied to One Main Account

Facebook is testing giving users the ability to create up to five profiles on the platform, a major change to its longstanding policy that only allows people to have a single account and identity on the service.

Unlike Instagram, which allows users to create multiple accounts and doesn’t require them to use their real names, Facebook has had strict – and often controversial – rules about users’ identities, regularly suspending users it catches using multiple accounts.
