    Hello,

    Today I noticed that my friend has the same IP adress as me, so I decided to check another friends IP adress and he also had the same IP as two of us according to whatsmyip website. We are using same ISP.

    Then I called friend in another city who's using different ISP and he also had same IP...
    So what I basically realized is that we all are sharing same IP and this IP isn't even registered on our ISPs... It's registered on some third company...
    The region I live in isn't big (about 400 000 residents) and these two ISPs are providing internet access to most households...

    That means that 1000s of people share same IP.

    So my question is:

    Is this good or bad thing for IM, i.e. creating fake social networks accs using this IP, if you consider that not too many people are doing the same thing as me? What do you think?
    Thanks.

    Far as I know that's not possible unless they are actually living in your house.
    IP's might be similar, but certainly not the same.

    Sounds like your ISP is using some proxies with 1,000 thread limit.

    The ROI must be good.

    Well, I have no idea what' going, but I checked and believe me, that's the case. Even when I look IP adress on a map it shows me the location of the city where my third friend lives...

    it's an interesting point, it would kind of force social media companies not to ban on multiple accounts from the same IP if there are lots of places where this happens. Who else has this same setup?

    That's just what I was thinking. If 1000s of real people are using the same IP to get on facebook, it would be easier for me to spam with fake accounts...

    It's not possible, unless the IP is changing every minute for people... there is something wrong in what you found!

    Can we assume you aren't in America with this? Pretty sure that would be a pretty big no no in America.

    It's not america. It's Bosnia and Herzegovina. Well, I googled it and looks like possible since there is more people with same problems around the world. My ISP is buying Internet connection from other company and distribute it to us. It's something like home network. You got one wi-fi router and no matter what device you're using to go online through your wi-fi you'll always have same IP.
    It looks like my ISP has some giant router (don't know how to name it :) ) and we all get internet access through it... I hope you understood me :-D

    Off course it's possible. It's even very common ( as nobody move for IPv6 it will be more and more common ).
    Maybe not 1 IP for 400 000 people, but an unique Class-C Block ( 256 ips ) for a whole ISP

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrier-grade_NAT

    Good question indeed, maybe these wide-shared Ips are somehow whitelist by some social media to not have to ban a whole country for few abuses.

    I've always believed that social media networks give some leeway due to this.... same as free wifi hotspots in a mall or an airport for example
