Whether you own a small or large business, you’ll need the power of social networks to boost your visibility .They’re also effective when you want to connect and interact with a younger audience. Facebook currently tops the list as the most popular social network platform. Employers who want to draw in subscribers and treat their clients might be tempted to start a contest. Since Facebook rules regarding contests are fairly stringent, it’s best that you opt for a free Facebook contest application.

Let’s first look at why we need these applications.

Follow the rules

Any legitimate Facebook contest must comply with Facebook’s laws, or the account could be closed and subscribers could be lost. A key requirement is that the contest must be conducted on a page or via a legal application, not on a personal profile. You must also include a disclaimer in the description absolving Facebook of any liability. Lastly, it is extremely important that you do not ask people to like the page in question, only the contest’s publication. Here’s a copy of Facebook’s contest rules and regulations.

The guidelines may be discouraging but luckily, you can opt for free Facebook contest applications. Let’s take a look at six of them.
