Facebook Terms and Condition (T&C) Changes

Updated: Oct 30, 2023

Facebook T&C Changes: As at April 2016

If you are on Facebook, you’ll see Promotions & Give-a-ways frequently. This is great for the Personal Facebook User to Win, but if you’re a business, using a Business Page – did you know that Facebook updated there Terms and Conditions in April 2016?

These changes mean that if you are running a promotion, you are no longer allowed to have the conditions of entry as:

‘Tag (someone) to win’ or

‘Share (this post)’.

If you watch the bigger corporate companies, you’ll see that they no longer run their give-a-way promotions this way – as they get punished by Facebook.

What’s the worst that can happen? Facebook can and will take down your Page.

Right now, if you are a little fish – a local business – Facebook haven’t quite updated there ‘bots’ to monitor you… yet.

So now you know, and it is entirely up to you what you do with this information. You could to run the risk until you get caught, as you do get great Free organic reach by asking people to Tag and Share – or you could get creative and think of other ways to get people to ‘Tag’ with out asking them too.

My favorite alternative: ‘Comment below’ or ask a question ‘Who would you like to win?’
