Facebook’s New Contest Terms – Good or Bad?

In light of Facebook’s contest announcement, which will now allow Pages to host promotions within their Timelines, as opposed to only within 3rd party apps, Room 214 employees had a friendly debate around whether this change is for the better or for the worse. Here are our pros and cons:

Pros:

  • Small to medium businesses now have an opportunity to play in this space, and will not longer have to devote budget (or miss out on contests/promos completely because of lack of budget) toward app development, execution and management
  • Many companies have been flying under the radar with this kind of promotion for years – promotions within Page timelines is a natural use of the platform and will increase users’ understanding and engagement with promotions
  • Hashtags can now have a greater involvement in promotions and contests

Cons:

  • Could attract “contest trolls” – people who scan the internet for free stuff
  • Could create more spammy posts in users’ News Feeds, decreasing the overall user base
  • Contest posts may not perform as well because brands will be eliciting shares/likes/comments, causing contest posts to potentially have less visibility in the News Feed
  • Contest posts will require ad spend to cut through the clutter that will be created by more pages posting more promotions/contests

What do you think? Is this going to improve the Facebook experience for users, or take away from it?
