Facebook Contests: How To Not Get Your Page Shut Down

Sometimes it's nice to be oblivious, don't you think? To live in our own little world, not really knowing what else is going on, thinking that everything is AOK. But then, something jumps up and bites us in the rear and then we are sorry. While I hate to be the bearer of bid tidings, I do want to make sure you are covered and know about specific Facebook rules and regulations you might not be aware of. 

Over the last few months I've had multiple conversations with people who were running the risk of having their Facebook Page shut down because they were holding contests & giveaways that didn't comply with Facebook's rules. Many don't know that such rules exist, but they are there. They are about as easy to understand as any riveting legal document out there, so I have two articles I want to share that help spell it out.   

Make sure you are complying with Facebook's rules. It's not worth the risk of having your page shut down!
