    So let's say I want an username for my Facebook like:

    www.facebook.com/MyBlogNameHere

    I need an SMS confirmation for that from a real phone number (and Google Voice is not an option since it doesn't work outside of the USA).
    I intend to use my regular phone number, because getting a prepaid simcard contract just to do this verification seems overkill.
    My question is: Does people that own my phone number, get a notification like "XXX has joined Facebook!" or some bs like that?

    Im worried because it's the same phone number I use for family, friends and work, and I don't want them to know about my internet businesses. It's all legal and whitehat, but I want to keep it myself anyway.

    If no notifications are sent, I don't see a reason to get a prepaid simcard just for this, but I need to be sure that no bullshit notification is going to be sent to people that own my phone number.

    Im using a brand newly created email and FB profile which has 0 friends, I've also set to "friends" on "who can look you up..."

    For some stupid ass reason Facebook doesn't allow you to set this to "only me". I assume "friends" means, only people that has added you as a friend can search you by phone number. Since I intend to run a fanpage, I guess this is irrelevant because fanpages have no "friends"???

    Help
