    I used to use a proxy service but it only allows me to browse through its interface. So for starters, are there recommendations for proxies that "proxify" the whole desktop, so I can use Chrome/Firefox directly and importantly that works with a bot. I've tried IPRental before and am thinking about that. Any other suggestions?

    Also, on use of the proxies- do you randomly switch IPs/use of proxy, or do you use a designated proxy IP for each account (make sure just to use that proxy IP for a particular account). Not sure whether changing IPs on random is sufficient, or if preferable to match up a certain IP with a certain account. Thanks!!

    I'd assume dedicating a proxy to each account is best, or 1 proxy per 2 accounts is fine. Trouble I'm having is finding a way to manage that. :p

    Yeah, I think ideally it would be an IP for each account. Realistically, with hundreds of accounts, and dozens of pages - I think it would be a logistical nightmare to coordinate that. Every time a status needs to be updated, or to do a friending, or even engage in "organic" activity- you have to set the right IP. Jumping between accounts, would also get bogged down.

    I'm leaning towards randomizing the IP; then if FB bans one of my accounts, perhaps they won't know how to group the others together either.

    buy proxies from a source where you can get them by country, city, state etc. Then use one city or state per account

    Use something like ProxyFirewall to handle the proxies
