Facebook, oh Facebook

Facebook has recently changed their promotion guidelines, affecting the additional entries I offer for becoming a fan of TCDR and sponsors. Sad as this is,  I plan on keeping my Facebook page open to post reminders, new giveaways or coupons, and updates while honoring the new guidelines. So the only change I will be making at this point is that I will discontinue additional entries into giveaways for Facebook fans. Most of the new guidelines apply mainly to giveaways hosted on Facebook (section 3), which I do not do, however, section 4 in particular applies to the way I use it with my blog as well. 

You don’t need to change anything if you are currently a fan, and we hope to continue to get new fans who want to stay in the loop! Not yet a Facebook fan of TCDR? You can click on the icon below or on the sidebar to become a Facebebook fan of TCDR.

Want for information on these changes? Read the new guidelines by clicking on the link below.

  1. An excerpt from the guidelines:Publicizing a promotion on Facebook means promoting, advertising or referencing a promotion in any way on Facebook or using any part of the Facebook Platform. This may include, for example, in Facebook advertising inventory, on a Facebook Page, or through a status update.

    This means to me I can't even post a link back to my blog where I'm hosting a giveaway. I deleted my whole fan page to avoid this stinky situation and getting in trouble.

    Facebook keeps shooting themselves in the foot and cutting off their nose to spite their face.
