    Hi everyone, i'm new to this forum and sorry if this is a stupid question. But I was wondering if I should use a proxy if I want to create a lot of accounts on social networking sites? Don't be afraid of posting suggestions and ideas.

    Thanks a lot!

    Like facebook ? No, you shouldn't, I've created lots of accs from my IP and not even one got banned...

    But you need to use proxy for Youtube, depends on a site.

    If you want to creatte accounts in FaceBook or Twitter, then you don't need to use proxy.

    I have to admit that I am a little confuse, cause some of you say I don't need to use a proxy and some say you must use a proxy. Could someone explain me clearly if I should use a proxy to make many accounts on a site, and if yes well why I need to use a proxy? Thanks a lot

    Anyone telling you not to use proxies is quite foolish and you will be screwed if you make more than 5 accts on an IP, just like spyguyzz says. Better to be safe than sorry bro.

    Proxies are definitely a must if you are using many accounts.

    I've been using sharedproxies.com for a while now, and found them to be pretty reliable.

    Yes definitely, you must use proxies to create multiple accounts in social networking sites. Try VPN it works very well.

    I wouldn't bother with the type of thing you are doing. You know when you need to have proxies as it will soon come up with IP blocked if you are signing up to lots of social network sites. If that happens, just buy hidemyass or something similar and plug it into your browser. I think hidemyarse is something like 70 bucks for the year.

    Obviously it is a bit different when it comes to using software. Certain things you just can't do without proxies. E.g. checking indexing or Pagreank etc. in Scrapebox. If you don't use proxies, it will work perfectly for the first 100 or so and then it will just fail. If you use rubbish proxies, your success rate will be poor and this is when you need to start buying them. Scraping them yourself in Scrapebox or ProxyGoblin is ok but the success rate and speed will suck. I personally use semi dedicated proxies from buyproxies.org for my software and they're very good

    You already got a lot of suggestions but alas you can make 5 accounts on one IP. Every one here has shared their best of knowledge and this is really good.
