And the guidelines say -

You will not administer a promotion through Facebook, except through an application on the Facebook Platform. Administration includes operation of any element of the promotion, such as collecting entries, conducting a drawing, judging entries, or notifying winners.

Which means -

You can’t use Facebook’s features for your promotions!

Unless – you use a 3rd party application on a Tab.
