Tech Tuesday: No More Facebook Likes in Giveaways!


Have you heard about the changes Facebook made to their policies? If you ever host giveaways on your blog, this is going to effect you…

Here’s what Facebook has to say:

You must not incentivize people to use social plugins or to like a Page. This includes offering rewards, or gating apps or app content based on whether or not a person has liked a Page. It remains acceptable to incentivize people to login to your app, checkin at a place or enter a promotion on your app’s Page. To ensure quality connections and help businesses reach the people who matter to them, we want people to like Pages because they want to connect and hear from the business, not because of artificial incentives. We believe this update will benefit people and advertisers alike.

“Incentivize” means that you can no longer include “liking” your facebook page as an entry in your giveaways. Rafflecopter, a popular giveaway hosting widget, goes into all the details here. You can read more about the changes from Facebook here in their post about Graph API v2.1 and updated iOS and Android SDKs. These changes must go into effect by November 5th! So take that into consideration when you’re planning your next giveaway!
