Why would someone have 2 Facebook accounts?

I find this strange, and old friend from school requested me as a friend, accepted, and when I got on her page, she only had 3 friends, oh well figured she must be new to Facebook.
Next day, I see another of our friends accepted her friend invite, this time to a page that had over 1,000 friends, under her married name.
She is a SAHM, so find it odd that she would need a business Facebook as well as a personal. I should add that the one she sent me the request on only has her mother and significant other and sister as friends.
I find it very odd that she has 2, maybe I am missing something?

  • One to add people they want to only see certain things. Another for everyone else.

  • I have a friend who made a 2nd one because he can keep some of his family separate from his regular FB that way

  • Well trust me the one she added me to, was full of fighting etc. between her and her SO, maybe she just was on the wrong account when she friended me? IDK?

  • Pretty sure multiple accounts (except for, like official pages you run through your account) violate the TOS...

  • Ask her about it? Maybe she didn't realize which account she was on. Or, perhaps, one of them isn't really hers at all and someone else is posing as her. I have two accounts only because when I had one, people kept trying to friend some bosses and coworkers I had on there to network, and I didn't like that at all, especially when they've never met them. I also had a few ex-friends that would friend every new person I added. It was so stalker-ish. So now, I separate my other friends from work friends, though really one account is really active now.
