This Trick Patched, Doesnt Work Any More
To create a hidden / ghost facebook account or page you should understand the trick and how it works .
Facebook based on objects, every object have a number called ID, there is no tow objects with the same ID .
however, to make it more easy for browsing facebook, they created usernames, also usernames cant be duplicated between accounts .
What is the different between usernames and IDs ?
ID is numbers generated automatically when you create a facebook object , while a username is characters with numbers that you choose by your own for your created object .
Though, while every username comes after the slash "/" for example :
so my official page username is : khalil.shr . and while there is facebook pages like : facebook.com/help for the facebook help center, means that we cant create an object with the username "help" because its already registered, but if we find a trick to make it , our page or account will redirect users to help center instead of the page or account time line .
Few tests i fount that we can create an account or a page with a redirect to a reserved facebook page which is : https://www.facebook.com/selfxss
so when users clicked your page/account , they will be redirect to facebook SelfXSS awarening page .
Steps to create a ghost/hidden account / page
- Create a new account or page .
- Choose a username with a duplicated of "selfxss" .
As you see the first time i used "selfxss.selfxss" as a username , then i used " selfxss.selfxss.selfxss" as another username, and both will redirect you to the facebook SelfXSS awarening page .
The most inportant for this trick is to create a username that starts of (selfxss) ,
examples: (selfxss.1 - selfxss.2 - selfxss.khalil .. etc)
soon as this article will spread on , facebook will patch it for sure .
