Ever see a Facebook contest and wonder if its being done correctly? One of the most important things to know is you can’t run a contest on Facebook directly. It has to be done by a Facebook 3rd Application. Going against this goes against the terms and services directly. You can view the terms and services here.
Recently we have just developed a Facebook app for a contest at Aitken’s Pewter. We came up with the concept to try and get as many views on this video as possible. Doing this wasn’t simple but we thought by creating a Facebook comment stream that had to be used to be entered was smart. Why? Simple. With this app, after someone uses the comment stream it posts on the stream as well on the persons Facebook wall with a link back to Aitkens Pewters contest page. So really, people are sharing it on their walls without even realizing it.
