    I’m just wondering what, if any, legal regulations organizations might have to be thinking about for running a sweepstakes type contest that has prizes? I know there are rules governing this for running a sweepstakes in the mail. What applies to Facebook or email?

      Gayle – Facebook has guidelines in their Page terms. Basically you can’t use a page like – or a like,comment or share a post – as a condition of entry.

    Basically all contests have to be done via a third-party app and have contest rules (legalese) spelled out too.
