Facebook is the ultimate place for entertaining yourself, connecting with people, socializing and conducting business. But using multiple Facebook accounts on Android is a bit challenging as Facebook promotes “one name, one account” policy.
There may be several reasons why you want to operate two Facebook accounts. For instance, sometimes we prefer to keep our private and business life separate, so we may prefer to have two separate Facebook accounts.
But the challenge is to access multiple Facebook accounts from a single Android device. Unlike WhatsApp and Twitter, multiple Facebook accounts can’t be run on a single Android device easily.
