    i see a lot of people who use SMM buying private proxies , why they didn't use VPN shield , or they do if so - then why to buy proxy ?
    i know that the shield VPN didn't allow facebook for example to see or track the IP < is that right ? > , then why to buy proxies < proxies mean some kind of IP's , is that right ? > if i know that the shield VPN will block them from appearing ????

    please help me only if you understand in this , i have been reading scams for days :(

    You want to use proxy for a few reasons:

    - You are the only one using that IP (talking about private proxyies of course)
    You don't want to lose your accounts because some dumbass is spamming with the same IP you are using.

    -The IP is not blacklisted
    Most VPN IPs are already blacklisted/flagged by big websites, this doesn't mean they'll ban you right away, but they'll watch closely what you are doing.

    -Bots & multi-accounts
    You can't use a VPN and manage multiple accounts at the same time.


    So you can use a VPN if you want but you shouldn't if you care about your accounts.

    I think you have a misunderstanding of how VPN works, whether you use a VPN or a proxy it doesn't "block" your IP, you open a connection to the VPN/proxy server that then connect the website you are trying to reach, so it doesn't "block" you IP, you simply don't connect to the website server directly so the website will see the IP of the VPN/proxy server.

    You can't use multi-accounts bots because the VPN will route all the traffic of your computer (well it's possible to limit that, but let's not go in to that), so if you run a bot managing multiple accounts they will all use the same IP. But when using proxies you can decided exactly what goes through which proxy very easily (but you don't even have to care about that because all decent bots have proxy support).

    So to make it simple, when you use a VPN you have to manually change the server and manage each account one at a time and when you use proxies the bot is doing all the work for you and can manage as much account as you want.

    OK thanks again ,,, i understand what you said but ,,what i also understood and correct me pls if i'm wrong , is that when i use a VPN the maximum would happen -facebook will delete\block my F.b account and facebook account are free i can make other cause for sure i am not the only one who using facebook on the VPN cloud IP
    but when i'm using a private proxy if facebook banned me i will lose the proxy that cost me money --
    cause at the end of the day i am using facebook for promoting so no matter how i use that there is a good chance that they catch me in some point ( and i would not call that " dumbass spamming " )

    am i wright ? do i missomething ?

    When you are talking about "promoting" you mean commenting on pages and posting in groups?
    If that's the case I can't really help you, because it's not what I'm doing as I prefer to work on long terms assets when it comes to social media (so in my case a dedicated IP is mandatory) but I assume your accounts won't last long and you are lucky if you are not prompt for phone verification right after the signup, but again not my area of expertise.

    Yes proxies cost more money, but trust me once you'll get serious about social media (managing tons of accounts or making sure your big accounts don't get banned) you wont ever think about using VPN anymore. Now if you are looking to do some quick churn and burn promotion where you build a ton of accounts and spam with them then maybe you should look for rotating proxies.
