It seems a fair number of organizations do things like that.
For what it is worth, I have seen ads on facebook that explicitly make that statement or something similar, e.g. "like us if you are concerned about hunger in America," which I saw earlier this evening. And that is right on facebook.
Excellent, cheers guys.
Just wanted to be sure as I know a few companies that have had their accounts suspended for offering competitions that are only open to people that 'like' their businesses online.
Obviously this idea isn't a competition and it does have a charitable outcome but the end effect is still a method of offering a 'bribe' for likes which I thought Facebook might object to. Will give it a go and report back if we get booted off!
I've just been wading through the Facebook help pages, and I don't think that this is allowed. Have a look at "use of the like button" on this page to see what you think.
I don't think any of the following apply to this situation.
"Like our organization's Page to show your support for X."
"Click 'Like' if you agree."
"Like this ad to see the video."
"Like our Page to automatically enter our raffle."
However, number 3 may apply.
"Click 'Like' to connect with X."
"Like our Page to receive updates, news, deals, etc."
"Like John's Page to show your support."
Just an opinion.
everybody does that, but thats against the guidlines..
you cannot "pay" for your likes in any way... even indirectly
It should be made compulsory for each organization, specially those who are leaving garbage and pollution after production.
To my mind that is better give £500 for person or company that will develop your Facebook page and increase "likes" in a few days. It depends on the area in which your company works, but I think that such messages are not very good for your company brand.
It sounds like the most reliable method would be to have a banner for the 'great tree planting scheme' on the front page, then some info, and a button that says 'Like our page to show your support and for updates'.
Obviously it won't result in tree planting when certain targets are hit but it still implies that liking us has a positive impact.
Gomage gomage - What do you reckon £500 would buy us and how would it help build up a following of loyal users?
