    I've only got 20 something working right now, but looking at switching over to fully private proxies vs semi, and wondering if the switchover is an issue?

    Does TW have a problem with the shift?

    Do I need to make sure the ones that were on old proxy A shift to new proxy A, old proxy B to new proxy B...?

    If it does matter which way the new ones get wired up, is there a way to automate this in FollowLiker so that they match up correctly when the new proxies are entered?

    Just in general, or specifically to the idea of switching a bunch over all at once?

    If so, for situation where you have 5 per proxy, does it matter if the same ones match up again after switch?

    Nah, I don't think it should matter.

    I don't think this would be a problem with twitter ..... as twitter doesn't care about ips related to your account ....

    So you can switch them at once !!!

    Asking because I had read that if one accts gets banned, others likely to follow on same IP. Not sure if that's true or not, but seems no one has any reason to believe the switch is a problem.

    I was assuming there would be folks on here who have done mass switches before. After all, several of the proxy companies say they provide fresh proxies monthly, so that must mean that whole army has to switch.

    with most providers you can keep the proxies after a month, moreover they only change them, if you request the change
    after the first month, they usually offer one change within each month for free, but you don't have to change the proxies, if you don't want to
    if there's no problem in the datacenters, you can keep using the same proxies for long months
    just make sure the ips are ok to use on twitter and aren't blacklisted and you'll be good

    I've noticed sometimes when I change geo location because of an IP change twitter challenges me for the accounts email but that's the only problem I've faced

    With IG you might have issues because they ask you to verify the account if you log in from a different device and a different IP (idk if distance plays a role in this)

    Its sorta like how FB is but less aggressive.

    Well, it's all connected. I have a half dozen personae in BuzzBuilder for Facebook, and they're all on my current proxies too, so what happens to them?

    I think I'll likely be using FollowLiker for mass IG campaign too, bu I haven't dug into it like I have for twitter.

    just don't reuse proxies with other social media accounts from the same type, if you already used those to be on the safe side
    instagram is more strict on the ips, but if you're only thinking about using the instagram modul, it may not be a problem, because i guess you don't even have the ig accs for it, so the ips will be fresh

    Not quite following. Don't reuse proxies with other social media accounts fom the same types.... not sure what that means... Do you mean don't do more than 1 per IP on IG, or don't use same ip used with tW?

    Basically getting, though, that switching iP's may be issue for IG, but not TW, right?
