Facebook competitions for Salons – the strict rules

Facebook have introduced some new strict rules about competitions on your Salon’s facebook page.


In essence –

Anytime you run a campaign on Facebook where you wish to select a winner, that is a Promotion and falls under their new guidelines.

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.
