FaceBook Changes

Hi Everyone
http://www.facebook.com/terms.php?ref=pf#/promotions_guidelines.phpAs many of you will have seen from posts around the web Facebook has changed their rules for promoting giveaway.  We are allowed to post the giveaways on Facebook and if you follow you will see the new giveaways as they are posted. We will no longer be offering extra entries for posting on Facebook or following us or a sponsor. You are welcome to follow any that interest you and of course us if you like ,we will continue to post how to follow us and sponsors just not for an entry.
Most of the new rules(sect 3) does not pertain to us as we do not administer our giveaways on the Facebook platform like such companies as Wildfire.
This section four is what pertains to bloggers and it just says keep Facebook out of the giveaway in all forms
"Section 4. Publicizing a Promotion on Facebook
You do not need our prior written approval if you are publicizing a promotion that is administered completely off of Facebook. However, we may remove any materials relating to the promotion or disable your Page or account if we determine that you violate these Promotions Guidelines, the Statement of Rights and Responsibilities or any other of our policies. If you publicize a promotion in any way on Facebook, in addition to the other terms and conditions contained in these Promotion Guidelines, without limiting your other obligations you agree to the following:
4.1 You will not directly or indirectly indicate that Facebook is a sponsor or administrator of the promotion or mention Facebook in any way in the rules or materials relating to the promotion.
4.2 In the rules of the promotion, or otherwise, you will not condition entry to the promotion upon taking any action on Facebook, for example, updating a status, posting on a profile or Page, or uploading a photo."

Other than that most of the legal jargon is just stuff that most should abide by anyways for ethical blogging. I hope this helps with anyone that has concerns over this issue as it is not a big a deal as most think. It is mainly directed at those that run giveaways entirely on Facebook. 
Have a great day and Good Luck to all in the giveaways, I have lots of winners to post later today.
