    let's say i buy a proxie and then make a facebook account and log in with it etc - I guess what I'm wondering is how long does a proxy lasts? like will i be able to use the same proxie for a year and keep on using the fb account or will i have to use another one monthly or weekly etc. Thanks!

    If your provider is worth a shit the proxy should never die. lol. If you get a dedicated/private proxy there's really no reason it should ever die so in theory you should have no problem doing that if you wanted.

    Hi :) if you have a good proxy provider the proxies should last a long period of time

    Everything has already been said:
    1) if you use a quality provider the proxy should last
    2) quality proxies are wasted on Facebook - maybe try with a VPN provider?

    If you are talking about a public proxy like the ones shared on HMA or other sites, no, they die fast and you have to keep using updated ones. If it is a good quality or private proxy or even a VPN, it can last longer.

    I buy my proxies from a provider on fiver, 5 for $5 a month. I buy two sets, one set I use for my personnas, and they stay the same all year. The other 5 I use for other chores, and get new ones every month.
