What I learned running a fake Facebook account for 8 years

Eight years ago I created a fake Facebook account for a completely fake person. I’m not sure why exactly I did it, but half the reason was probably just to use it to mess with my friends. But for some reason I never deleted it year after year. I kept it going, visiting it every couple months to see how “Jake” was doing. And I actually ended up learning something from it.
