Many marketers transition from MassPlanner and Instagress to the best alternative available today, Followliker. Many users are at the beginning of their marketing journeys and on forums, they started asking about Followliker proxies and where to get them.
DO FOLLOWLIKER PROXIES EXIST?
The shortest answer we can give is that Followliker proxies do not exist. And if they do, they are certainly a marketing trick because FollowLiker (same as other social media bots such as Jarvee) uses HTTP/S proxies. And your focus should be on getting working proxies for the platform on which you want to use FollowLiker. However, this automation tool does provide settings to divert your accounts’ connection through a proxy. So to better understand the Followliker proxy question, we have created this short article.

While marketers can set their proxies in the social media automation tool, buying dedicated proxies for it is not necessary. Followliker, as a desktop app, doesn’t require proxies because it is installed locally, on the user’s PC or VPS. However, depending on his settings and social media operation scale, some users will need proxies.
Users should NOT look to buy Followliker proxies because this is the wrong approach. The better search query that users can perform is to look for private proxies for the destination platform. Meaning, to look for proxies for the social media platform on which their accounts will connect (for example, for Instagram, you should look for Instagram proxies).
Here’s how you insert a proxy’ in FollowLiker.
As you can see, all you need to insert is a proxy’s IP and PORT details – the details that any proxy has. So you should focus on finding Instagram proxies (if you want to manage IG accounts) because your IP will reach Instagram servers, not FollowLiker’s one.
Here’s another look at FollowLiker’s proxy manager.
WHAT PROXIES SHOULD YOU BUY?
Now, if you were looking to buy proxies and set your Followliker accounts through them, then you should look for social media proxies. So, never look for proxies for the social media tool. Instead, you should look for Pinterest proxies, Instagram proxies or Twitter proxies.
The above mentioned special use proxies are usually dedicated virgin proxies for the underlying platform. Thus, you are the first user connecting this proxy’s IP to social media. Therefore, IP, connection related, you do not face any risks.
Moreover, if you are at the beginning of your social media marketing journey, you should always consider using the above mentioned social media proxies. But, you can skip using proxies for Followliker only under certain conditions.
WHEN YOU SHOULDN’T BUY PROXIES
You should not buy social media proxies for Followliker if your setup has the following two characteristics.
First, you manage less than five accounts. Most social media platforms allow up to five accounts to be active and connect from the same IP. Therefore, if you have less than five accounts, you don’t have to buy social media proxies.
Second, you MUST install Followliker on your PC, private server and use your own IP. Do not use Followliker without proxies if you installed it on a VPS because you do not have control over the VPS connection. Nor you know their IP history.
Therefore, you can consider saving some money and not buying social media proxies for Followliker if:
- you manage less than five accounts, or
- you have installed it on your PC/server and you have full control of the IP connection.
THE PROXY – ACCOUNT RATIO
Another question that could baffle you is how many accounts to connect through a proxy when using Followliker.
As mentioned above, social media platforms allow up to five accounts to safely connect through an IP. However, for automated social media accounts, the rule of thumb is to use a ratio of 1 to 1, which means that you should connect each account set in Followliker through a different proxy.
The main reason for this ratio is to keep your accounts safe and secure in the eventuality that one of your accounts will be blocked by the social media platform.
To make it clear, let’s finish with a shortlist:
- Followliker proxies do not exist!
- Use proxies if you use a VPS and connect more than five accounts
- Buy proxies for the social media platform where your accounts will connect
- Use an account to proxy ratio of 1 to 1.
