    Hey,

    I've noticed a lot of people log in through proxies.

    I systematically go through 100-200 of my accs every month or so and have done for 3 yrs and loose only minimal.

    I don't understand the concept of proxies properly (how to use them, i get what they do)

    Is it worth starting now? that to me just seems a bit dodgy ?

    It really depends on your needs. Some things require proxies (e.g. Scraping google, posting thousands of comments to blogs, etc...) and some don't, which your services do not apparently. If you don't require them now, good! Keep it that way. :)

    For Facebook specifically, I would hazard a guess that if one of your accounts gets banned, there is a good chance that the other 100 will follow shortly after.

    Proxies are used for various purposes, accessing accounts isn't the only one. For example, if you use SEO related tools (i.e. Scrapebox, No Hands SEO...) you would want to use them with proxies otherwise google will just ban your IP because you are sending many queries from one IP in a shorter period of time. Most, if not all, of these tools have built in support for proxies. That means you just insert the proxies you bought into the tools and they'll start working with proxies.

    Proxies can also be used with web browsers, a little searching on google will reveal how.
