This past week I decided I wanted to thank my loyal clients and all my "likers" on facebook by offering a free mini session this weekend. Less than 2 days into the simple contest (tag yourself in the photo type contest) I was told by facebook I was breaking the rules, they locked the photo so that no one else could tag it, I would not be allowed to post any photos and I was in harm of having my account deleted.
Here was my original photo that got me in trouble:
They didn't really give me a reason. I made a new photo, did some test posting and posted another contest photo- we were up and running again.
Or so I thought- I started reading the rules of facebook and determined the way I was running my contest was basically illegal. See facebook contest rules here.
I decided to end the contest immediately. I had a fear of them deleting my business page which I have built for 2 years. I wasn't about to lose contact with the 1000+ people I had come in contact with over those two years.
So instead- I quickly picked a winner. (Congratulations Gregg Scott Hollingsworth! ) Ended the contest 2 days early. I didn't feel it was fair to end it so quickly and found a way to legally run a contest on facebook. Another YAY!!!
SOOOOO I am giving away a total of TWO mini sessions. Contest ends in two days. Session must take place on Saturday, October 1st in the morning- in Glendale, AZ.
I just wanted a way to say thanks to all my faithful likers and clients and let them know how much I appreciate them. THANK YOU!!!
