Welcome to What is Fakebook?
Fakebook? What is Fakebook? Yes, there is a site called Fakebook. I have to admit that when I first heard of it, I wondered if maybe it wasn’t a satire on Facebook. But no, it definitely is not. Actually, I wish I had had such a site to go to when I was in high school. But since there were no personal computers to work with, there weren’t any sites to go to for help. Fakebook allows teachers and students to create fictitious profile pages for more productive study purposes. Plus, it’s fun!

What is Fakebook? – The Creator
Russell Tarr, the creator of Fakebook, has just released a new version of the site. This latest version makes it so easy to create a page of someone. All you have to do is click on a field and enter as much information as you like. For example, when you click on the face icon, type in Abraham Lincoln, and Fakebook will search for photos of Abraham Lincoln. You pick the picture you want, add it to the profile, and now you’re ready to start creating.
You see, Facebook’s terms of service will not allow you to create profiles of other people, whether or not they are famous. However, Fakebook does let you do this. As a teacher, a student (or simply just because), you can build a Fakebook profile of whatever character, factual or fictional, that you want. Creating a Fakebook profile is a fun way for students of all ages to organize the information they find about the person they are studying, or the story they are reading. This is definitely a great way to keep notes together. Actually, these are your notes!
What is Fakebok? – To Start Using
To start using it, all you need to do is enter a name. Next, just add friends, posts from others, comments, and other profile information. No need to worry about doing all of this at once, of course, because you can save everything you’ve entered and come back to edit later. Fakebook can help you chart the plot of an assigned book (or maybe just help a reader understand a book better; ever read Dostoyevsky?). It can also help you chart the development of a character, a series of events, the debates and relationships between people, and so on.
In another recent update, Fakebook Animated was released. This addition allows you to watch your Fakebook profile timelines unfold in front of your eyes over time!
Fakebook is a great way to help students, teachers, or anyone else that may want to have a better understanding of what they are teaching and/or reading. Being a former student myself, I know that any help you can get with any of the assigned work you do is always a good thing.
