Web pages outside Facebook are useful too. Use popular free websites or wikis with high or unlimited bandwidth and simple online editing. Use a large, popular web host because many of the smaller ones disappear over time along with your web pages if you did not back them up.
Some of the comparison pages linked below have tables with a column for monthly bandwidth. You may be unpleasantly surprised how a monthly bandwidth limit of one gigabyte can ruin your efforts right when your website becomes popular. Wikis and blogs usually have unlimited bandwidth. See the bandwidth column on this page:
Wikipedia: Comparison of free web hosting services. Nearly all the sites that are listed have free online editing ("page builder" column). Free FTP upload is recommended if you think you will have a lot of pages. That way you can work offline on some or all of your web pages, and upload many of them fast as you create or revise them. Or you can use the site's upload page to upload a few pages at a time.

If you need anonymity (for whatever reason) you can use fake names for your facebook name, free hosting signup, and everything activism related. Use a real-sounding name, or Facebook will block your account. Even Wikipedia, for example, recommends not using a real user name. The email address you sign up with is real. Whether you use a real name on your email address is up to you. Either way, of course, the government knows everything. :) The anonymity is to avoid other problems. You can use a separate private email address for personal communications not concerned with activism. It is possible to create an additional web-based e-mail address, and then set it to forward email to your main email address. This prevents exposure of your real name or your main email address. This is good for posting comments that require an email address. Google Mail (Gmail) allows free email forwarding. One can automatically forward email from one Gmail account to another Gmail account, or to any email account. You can change your name on either or both of the Google email accounts also if you want to.
If you are used to wikipedia, then maybe create a web page at one of the free wiki farms. They offer many different options and levels of control and collaboration. See:
Some recommended, paid, web page hosting:
- 1and1.com - Worldwide web page hosting. Large web hosts with servers in several nations are good for GMM cities in nations with more oppressive censorship. These nations can not shut down servers outside their nation.
