It will be a fictitious person, not myself, so I can post my actual opinions on subjects.

I heard FB doesn't allow fake people and would kill accounts for that...

I'd be weary adding people you know that you added on your main account. They might figure out who you are.

I think what Facebook does to an account depends on the account name and when it was made. A normal name should be fine. I've had an account with an obciously fake name for years but I think it was before the huge crackdown so they ignore it.

Does FB even allow porn reviewers?

Not if it can't detect it.

There's very little chance of it detecting that this fake account is yours. IPs don't matter, since it could just be your brother/sister.

Make sure to use a completely different e-mail than your main account, as in a completely different provider. What Facebook knows about you as a person is frankly disturbing.

I made an account back in the early days of PS4 so that I could upload my videos to Facebook, download them and then reupload to Youtube (only way of doing it). I added no one, I put in the minimum required information, even used a fake name - got those e-mails with "You might know these people" and it f***ing listed people I actually knew in real life. Like what the f***? No privacy allowed.

I believe Facebook has a policy where all accounts eventually require a phone number to verify. So unless you have a separate phone number, your account will get locked.
