Is Contesting on Facebook Now Legal? [ANSWER]
Holding contests on Facebook pages was once against the rules, but thanks to a change in policy and page terms, Facebook pages can now ask people to like and comment as a way of entering a contest.

- Collect entries by having users post on the Page or comment/like a Page post
- Collect entries by having users message the Page
- Utilize likes as a voting mechanismAs before, however, businesses cannot administer promotions on personal Timelines.
