    I have FL for IG. Now it looks like I need proxies to run more accounts and I'm moving into the twitter automation too.

    I originally thought a one time fee for the FL license would be far less expensive but didn't take the proxies into account.

    Am I right in the math putting them pretty close as far as cost for say 7 IG accounts and 2-4 Twitter accounts?

    They seem to do exactly the same thing w MP being a little more convenient because you don't have to worry about proxies. Or am I wrong about that?

    Take it easy on me. I am a newb and read what I could w/o fully comprehending.

    You're right about that.

    As with most tools here you'll need proxies. For Twitter and IG you need private proxies, for scraping and so on you can use open proxies.

    Ok, good to know. Thanks. So that seems to make MP the significantly more expensive option. Or am I wrong there as well?

    It is more expensive yes. you will need proxies no matter what.

    Some people prefer it though as it has features that FL doesnt (DM checking etc) and the user interface is much nicer.

    I use FL by the way.

    FL is $98 and MP is $17 a month (both for the Instagram versions). So it takes 6 months for MP to be more expensive. You should be able to start making money within 6 months, so you can either fail within that time and save some money, or spend less upfront and spend the rest out of earned money.

    Also, I have both FL and MP, and I personally think MP is a much better product and totally worth the extra money.

    I use FL as well simply because it's a one-time payment and it does what I need it to do, although a lot of people here prefer MP.

    If you can afford it, you should try MP as well. You might like it better than FL.

    Follow up questions. Why is it suggested to have separate proxies for each IG acc as opposed to 4 like I have on my home IP?

    Can I run Twitter and IG accounts on the same IP?

    For both of them you need to have proxys.

    I have both, FL and MP and i must say MP is much better, you can tweak better the following...targeting etc but maybe is just me... I know is more expensive but still...for me MP is better

    It always safest to run one account per IP (either home or proxy) you can do 4 on a private proxy, but it's more risky. You'll probably be fine, but do you want to risk it?

    And yeah, you can run Twitter and IG on the same proxy.

    I use 2 IG per proxy. I think you could run up to 5 accounts per IP but I wouldn't do that. I think max. 3 per IG account would be MY highest number. It's simple when 1 of your 4 accounts gets flagged you may loose all 4. If you have only 2 on one IP you loose only 2.

    Yes you can run Twitter and IG on same proxy. You could also run Pinterest and more since they are different companys/networks.

    I run 3 per proxy on IG with FL and have had no problems whatsoever.. Been working flawlessly for years now and has required very little maintenance. Really fantastic piece of software.

    So far I've been very happy w FL for IG. It's pretty remarkable. But it can't hurt to try MP for a month before I buy FL for Twitter.

    Are most people doing the Premium Plan from MP or the Standard and then buying modules?

    Hi Mjdsocial,

    I figured I would join this thread. Maybe you can help! I am having a ton of trouble with FL. I have used it for a while now, but I am trying to add a new account and it will not allow me to log in on insta. the proxies are 100% good and activated. I have verified the account about four times. have you ever had this problem? what are better options than FL?

    I thought FL doesn't require proxies or you added proxies of your own? Make sure that you authorized your IP address before use that proxies
