So I couldn't find a definite answer on the question I have on FB's website guidlines.

We have a typical FB and TW icon on our website...

What I want to do is add a graphic to our home page slideshow, approx. 500px X 200px.

I just want to come up with some original custom graphic highlighting FB and TW and our social media presence. I wanted to do a vintage style graphic with muted colors, maybe some dotted print type screen overlays, hard borders...etc..etc... and add a little text with a hyperlink...

But I couldn't find whether that type of advertising / promotion was "legal" by their guidelines or not.. All I see is guidelines about actual promotions that involve giveaways, and advertising guidelines that pertain to advertising on their website via PPC...

Does anyone have any insight into whether or not this is permited?

I've seen plenty of websites promote their Twitter and Facebook accounts (to encourage to Like them on Facebook or follow them on Twitter). I don't think it's a problem at all.

You would be promoting the use of Facebook and Twitter.. in effect advertising for them (for free).

Just check their guidelines to make sure you comply with certain things, (e.g.- Facebook general guideline #5 "You must keep sufficient space around our Brand Assets so they appear clean and uncluttered.", etc).
