    I'm strengthening my social network campaigns which are running on imacros and firefox on PC (Win7). Since most users nowadays are using mobile and tablets, I'd like my accounts to blend in by faking the use of mobile and tablets. Firefox has an add on called User Agent Switcher to simulate these devices while viewing them on a PC. And they work perfectly with Imacros.

    By simply using this add on, is that going to be enough so that my accounts would look (from the social networks' analytics) as if they are using mobiles and tablets instead of PC/Win7?

    Depends upon the network but the bigger ones are wise to this as they have whole teams that have been working to stop it for years. I was making thousands from dating on POF but now they use ActiveX mac address and other things, Including sheer violence by suing people.

    Thanks for the insight. I'm already using different proxies for each account. I was hoping to do something a bit more so that my accounts don't stand out. I figure that not many are using Win7 nowadays. Do you have any suggestions?
