What's the purpose of having multiple facebook accounts? ?

This guy I know has 3 Facebook accounts. He's not the professional type, he doesn't have his own business he's a player. All of his Facebook accounts have the same name too& he's active on all 3 accounts just doesn't make sense.

    Wanting to be banned and too dumb to read the rules by the sound if it.

    More than one account, ever, and you get a lifetime ban once facebook detects it.

    Some people repeatedly post things that get 

    them banned -- this way he can keep going 

    with the other accounts while waiting for a 

    ban to get lifted.  Some people are heavily 

    subscribed (following) many different things -- 

    it can be easier to manage if you have a few 

    different accounts (e.g. a sports account, a 

    news/headlines account, a whatever account). 

    Some people belong to 'secret' groups, and 

    they'll use an alternate account to follow these. 

    Some people administrate/moderate groups, 

    and will use different accounts to do so. 

    I could go on with several more examples, 

    but I think you get the idea. Here's a thought:
