FACEBOOK SWEEPSTAKES LAW
The vast majority of all sweepstakes and contests run on Facebook are not legally compliant?
We receive many calls everyday from online companies and entrepreneurs about setting up new sweepstakes and contests online. More and more, entrepreneurs ask about online promotions through Facebook. What makes Facebook Sweeps so compelling is the 300 million plus users. Facebook allows for fast and easy promotion to all those active users. But don't forget ... Just because you promote a Sweeps on Facebook does not make it any less regulated.
Way too many companies promote (and at times attempt to run) Sweeps and Contests without the required legal standards. A few things to remember:
- Facebook's promotion guidelines are not the legal standards to follow when designing promotions.
- Just because Facebook permits certain promotions does not make your particular sweepstakes or contest idea legal.
- FIlling up a form designed by an online sweeps administration site, does not mean that the content of the information is legal
