Can I Run a Competition on my Blog and Promote it in Facebook?

The answer is yes – there is absolutely no restriction on promoting your competition on your website or blog in Facebook, as long as there’s no requirement to do anything on Facebook; e.g., like your page, comment, upload content, etc.

A  lot of people are confused about using third party apps, and whether they are breaching the Facebook Guidelines.  Easy solution – set up a competition on their website – and drive traffic back to it by announcing it regularly on their page.

One thing you might consider doing is to include a disclosure: “This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook.”

Oh and a word of warning – make sure when setting up your competition that it is being run within the laws of your country or state.
