    Hey guys,

    My plan is to manage 3 Facebook accounts and the
    verified accounts I find are in the US, but...

    Before I go buying verified accounts, I will probably
    need to get hold of private proxies by the looks of
    things from what I've been researching.

    When I go abroad to some countries, I use either
    Astrill VPN or Express VPN.

    So can anyone advise me on which would be better,
    makes no difference or something?


    Thanks!

    Thanks for the reply Hassan.

    It would help to explain why you think it would be better. Anyone else?

    Because you will be only the owner of the private proxy

    I agree that a private proxy or proxies are the way to go but that doesn't mean the private proxy wasn't used in the past and is blocked or listed as a spam IP. This especially applies with VPN Services. If you go with a private proxy first check to see if its a fresh IP or something they issued in the past. You can use http://www.anti-abuse.org/multi-rbl-check/ to see if its listed in any RBLS which would be somewhat of an indicator. I've tried that with some VPN services and many where listed.

    Another option you have is to purchase a VPS that has multiple IP's and put your own proxy server on it. In some cases you can do that cheaper or for the same price as getting just a few private IP's and you would also have a nice server that you could use for other purposes.

    If you need assistance setting up your own vps with your own private proxies PM me and I can give you a hand.

    You can use both.. both are safe.. ExpressVPN is better than Astrill.. I heard that Astrill only work good in China and Australia

    Nice one thank you Kilaz.

    Really insightful input which would have never crossed my mind.

    I've used both in China. Which was why I was considering a VPN in the first place.
