Great news! You can now run contests on your Facebook Page without a third party app. According to the official Facebook announcement, businesses can now:
- Collect entries by having users post on the Page or comment/like a Page post
- Collect entries by having users message the Page
- Utilize likes as a voting mechanism
Facebook also announced that Pages are prohibited from tagging or asking people to tag themselves in content that they are not depicted in. For instance, if you release a new product, you can’t ask people tag themselves in exchange for a chance to win a prize.
