BREAKING NEWS: Facebook Changes Its Promotions Policy — Are You Compliant?


Have you updated your promotion campaigns to be in accordance with these changes? (Promotions Guidelines)

Two important changes:  promotions offered through Facebook may run entirely within the Facebook environment instead of requiring that users go to a microsite to enter the promotion. Also the prior policy that required Facebook’s approval before a promotion could commence is now removed.

As always, I welcome any questions, concerns, or feedback you might have. You can leave a comment in the box below, or email me at

If you haven’t reviewed Facebook’s Policy and Guidelines – DO IT NOW!
