Trying to create a facebook page for cosplay

Ugh, see, I wanted to create a facebook page for my cosplay, using my "stage name" or whatever, and not my real name. But it wouldn't let me sign up unless I used my real name, and now I don't know how to change it.

How do people have facebook pages with their cosplay names? Sorry, I avoid social media like the plague due to privacy issues, so maybe this isn't possible. Except that I see a lot of people that figured out how to... lol any help is appreciated!

Ok, I see you aren't familiar with facebook and I admit, it can be confusing. Let me explain:

A facebook page is something different than a facebook account. When you register at facebook, you create a facebook account, using your real life data. After that, you can create a facebook page, where you will be the admin with your personal account.

You can like and post in the name of your page, but you can't join groups as your page, because a page is not a person. Company pages or the pages of celebraties are often managed not by the star or manager themself, but by a qualified PR person.

you should be creating a page, not an account. that way people can 'like' your page and still see your statuses without having to approve friendship for each person.
