Firstly the word “account” was used in reference to bank accounts. But not too long ago, with the rise of the Internet, the term has migrated to the area of information technology. Now the account is a set of data that describes the user. In contrast to login, which only identifies him, account contains more information. In each case, it may be a different set of data.
Why do I need a Social Media account?
When registering for any resource like social network Facebook or messenger WhatsApp or Skype, you setup an account. Sometimes it is also called a profile. First and foremost, it contains your email. Why would you need to enter your email address? That’s because the administration of resource is trying to prevent multiple registrations. This happens as follows: you are sent a specially generated email with a link by following which you can complete the registration. It means that in order to make many accounts you need lots of email addresses. As well binding to email can uniquely identify the visitor.
Why should I fill a Social profile?
Your profile may also contain additional information, such as name of your company, your partners, your services, logo and so on. Usually, the need of any data is well founded. The services of your company specified in your account can be picked up by the Social Network for showing to your potential clients. Also ads are shown to users according to their interests and services you’re offering. Logical fact is that if a person is interested in gardening, the new shovel will cause him much more interest than the computer desk.
