First check with your probation officer. If you get the okay, get it in writing as rwvnral said. Then you can create your facebook account, but you absolutely must show up at your place of registering with three business days to report that account. If you don’t you could be charged with failure to comply which is a four year felony in my state. They aren’t saying you can’t have facebook, they just have to know about it. However, after you create your account, you will likely be kicked off facebook within a couple days due to their policy and you will have to return to your place of registering again within 3 days to report that change. Until facebook updates their policy, I wouldn’t even bother, it sets too many holes to step in. I personally will not create an account for myself until it is confirmed that I do not have to report it. Hopefully Does v. Snyder will accomplish that. Please be careful everyone, this was a major victory, but we are not out of the water yet.
