Is it scamming if I sign up a fake account on FB?

    When people will see the account and decide to add as a friend they will add a not real account, so i guess it's scamming right?

    I want to play around with FB, but i would not feel comfortable knowing that people add a fake profile... however nobody told them the account represents a real user.

    A good percentage of FB accounts are fake. Who cares.

    Just make one and go about your business, its perfectly fine :)

    It is not scamming unless the purpose of creating the account is to scam.
    It is against Facebook ToS but that does not make it illegal.
    Legally I can call myself by any name I want, it only becomes illegal when the sole purpose of changing my name or using a different identity is to defraud somebody.
