Facebook recently announced they have changed their page terms. Some of you might not have realized that previously running a promotion or contest directly on your page timeline was against Facebook’s policies and your page could have been deleted without question if discovered. Others of you might have known this and been using approved app’s to administer these contest and paying subscription fees. The guidelines now show that running a promotion such as counting “likes or comments” on an image or post as entries or posting directly on your wall for an entry into a contest is acceptable.
So now the questions are: how will the apps you previously paid for adapt to this? With not many other options is running contest free but having to manually keep up and pick winners worth it? Who ran contest on their page before and disregarded the guidelines?
