Facebook “Liking” is a No-No. {Important Info Regarding Giveaways!}

I am flabbergasted. After reading this post on my dear friend Leslie’s blog, it appears as though I need to go through and “fix” my current giveaways.

Apparently it is against Facebook policy to ask readers to become a fan of any facebook page as an entry into a giveaway.

Since I don’t want to step on the toes of the Facebook gods, I will be editing all of my current giveaways and removing the option to “like” my page as well as the sponsors pages.

I hate to do that, but I have to do what’s right.

I do hope that you’ll continue to be a fan of Blessed Beyond Words on facebook so you can stay updated with the latest news, reviews, and giveaways.

If you have any questions, please let me know. Also, be sure to read the article Leslie put up because it’s clear confirmation from Facebook that we are violating their guidelines when we ask readers to “like” any pages.

Off to fix my giveaways….

Updated 10/12/11 to add: I have to say that I’m even MORE flabbergasted over the rude comments and the outcry over this post. I woke up this morning and had to delete 4 comments because they were absolutely uncalled for. How does my decision to NOT ask you to like my facebook page hurt you? Sure, it takes away a bonus entry for a giveaway, but it hurts my numbers even more.

Anymore rude comments, and I will close the comments on this post. You can disagree with me if you want, that’s fine. But you can still act like a grown up.

Change to the Amazon GC Giveaway

Since the Amazon GC is an electronic gift card that will be sent to the winner by email, I have decided that the $50 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway should be open to EVERYONE.

So, if you’ve been holding back because you live anywhere but the US, dive right in!

Best of luck to everyone that enters!
