Getting Started 

 

Fakebook is a tool for writing and presentation.  The site allows users to create a fake Facebook account for a fictional or historical figure.  Users can select to add photos, videos, status updates, friends and more.  If you can do it on Facebook, then you can probably do it on Fakebook.  Click to check out Amelia Earhart's Fakebook page!
