FB Contests

Posted by Kari Skipper Foster @kskipperfoster, Nov 21, 2011

Has anyone run, legally, any type of contest or giveaway on Facebook minus a 3rd party app or a separate webpage? I really don’t see any wiggle room in the FB promotions guidelines but thought it was worth asking. Thanks.

We built our own app (with a developer’s help) for a contest that included a prize, and I know of others who have had contests using Facebook’s polling feature (e.g. New South Wales Police naming the new litter of puppies for their police dog), but in the latter case it didn’t involve a prize or giveaway. I actually think that kind of contest might work best.
