    I have some clients who would like me (well, my firm) to setup and manage their social media presence. This will involve creating fresh accounts on many of the social networks (FB, Twitter, etc) and, of course, logging in and managing them. Surely this will lead to account deletions when we start talking large numbers of accounts created from the same IP and useragent. I'm familiar with the black hat techniques of account creation. Is there a white hat method? I notice similar firms handling hundreds of accounts; surely I'm missing something. We don't specialize in social media management (yet), so apologies for the newb question.

    I'd appreciate (a lot) any sensible suggestions.

    This really shouldn't be a problem. I have more than a few clients who I have social media presences for and I have never lost one account.

    For Twitter, use Hootsuite to manage multiple connections. Makes it nice and simple.

    For Facebook, just create separate pages for each client from one master account and have another safe account as an admin on those pages.

    Feel free to PM me with anymore specific questions that you have.

    Josh, you're awesome. I spent a good couple of hours scouring G for answers this evening and without success. You'd think the subject would come up more often. I'll certainly take you up on your offer. Thanks!

    I manage 30 + accounts with no problems - all depends on how many. If you get into the hundreds it may...but just buy a VPN then

    I appreciate the advice. Would you recommend me asking the client to create the relevant accounts and giving me the login details?
