Is Your Facebook Contest Legal? [Infographic]

Posted by Dana Kilroy on 29 Jul 2014 / 0 Comment

Are you familiar with Facebook’s most recent promotion guidelines?

For example, did you know that it is now legal to ask fans to Like your Page in order to enter? (Even though we frown upon this practice because there is no easy way to tell who has Liked your Page and when, Facebook no longer sees this a bad practice for running promotions.)

Some things you cannot do include tag people in a brand’s image in order to enter, or require your fans to share your Page in order to enter.

Chances are you wear several hats and don’t always have time to check in with the latest and greatest guidelines that Facebook has laid out for business’s who want to run a promotion.

The good news is, we’ve got you covered.

We created this infographic for one of our favorite sites Inside Facebook, but it’s perfect for sharing on Socially Stacked, too. Have you run afoul of the Facebook law? What advice do you have for anyone who’s got a contest in the works? Please share in the comments below!
