Question:

Our company is starting to branch out into Facebook development.

What is the proper way to share an account among the team members so that we can access/admin the Facebook apps/custom tabs for our clients in a consolidated way?

Sharing facebook profile is not allowed. Everyone should access Facebook ONLY by using his/her REAL profile.

According to the TOS,

  • You will not provide any false personal information on Facebook, or create an account for anyone other than yourself without permission.
  • You will not create more than one personal profile.

In fact, if facebook detects that any account is "fake", that account will be blocked, or as least its capability will be limited. For example, Facebook may not allow those "fake" to register new Facebook apps (even they had been verified before as a developer account) and an extract of the "error message" is shown below:

You can no longer create apps because our systems indicated that your account may not be authentic. Facebook requires users to provide their real first and last names, and fake accounts are a violation of our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (SRR 4.1), even when used to host or test apps. Also note that maintaining multiple accounts, even if they are authentic, is also prohibited.
