Fun Giveaway – Make Sure You’re a Facebook Fan!

Do you “like” me on Facebook? If you do, are you seeing my posts in your news feed? Facebook wasn’t showing me what I wanted to see, so I created a list with all the pages I wanted to see. You can also mark things as a “top story” so Facebook knows you want to see them. The more you interact with the page, the more likely it will be shown to you.

So why am I telling you this? You may have missed that I installed the “top fans” app from Booshaka. (You can see it in the left column of the page, though it will be closer to the top when the page switches to timeline view.)

Mmkay, well what the heck is that? “Booshaka analyzes your Facebook page and surfaces the top contributors so that you can recognize them. Fans earn points for the quality of their participation and ability to engage the community.” Huh? You can read their FAQs for more info but here’s the gist of it: “How does the point system work? Posts, comments and likes are all worth 1 point each. But don’t just try to create the most posts and comments. Your score is weighted by the quality of your participation. Higher quality activity (on topic and engages with the community) will earn extra points. Lower quality activity (off topic and spam) will earn less points. And consistent activity over time is more valuable than repeatedly performing the same action, such as clicking the Like button on every post.

So basically, it’s a little bribe to be an active participant! As most of you know, Facebook promotion guidelines do not allow me to give prizes for actions on Facebook however, I will be awarding prizes based on the Booshaka leaderboard, a 3rd party app, and not by selecting someone who liked, commented etc. Follow?

Anyhoo, I plan to give a prize for the #1 fan each month and a small (but still fun) prize for #s 2-5. I plan to continue this as long as it is fun for everyone and no one gets upset, ok? 🙂

I set out this week to find some fun prizes that wouldn’t break my bank, and inadvertently found myself some sponsors!

Please thank Diaper Shops/Kelly’s Closet, Kelly Wels’ Changing Diapers and CJ’s BUTTer for providing some fantastic prizes for February and March (CJ’s & Kelly beyond March!)! Show them some love by “liking” them on Facebook and following them on Twitter!

For anyone who doesn’t use Facebook, doesn’t like Facebook etc. you can have a chance at a runner-up prize (Approx. $5.00 value) using the Rafflecopter form below. Come back daily for another entry. Yes, I know daily entry stuff is annoying, but the point is to reward people who come and interact, read posts, comment etc. If you stop by regularly, a click for an entry shouldn’t be too hard!

    fyi… i noticed on a similar giveaway (using Booshaka) someone using methods, not perhaps exactly cheating, to increase their level in the top fan list – most notably by liking their own comments.

      Oh jeez. Well if I see that, I will have to DQ them. Thanks for the heads up!

    Hmm, can we do this form AND comment on Facebook? Or is that just getting too greedy? 😉

    • March 2, 2012 at 2:14 pm

      Feel free to do both! 🙂
