Well THAT'S no fun

I just finished reading a blog post, found via FB, about the LEGALITIES of doing giveaways on our blogs.  You might know.  As many of you that follow blogs like this have seen, many of US do like to do give aways.  We do it for the fun.  We do it to bring people to our blog.  We never ask of anything in return except contact information. And we get responses.  TONS of them.  But apprarently, by just giving stuff away, and then linking to Facebook that we're doing so  - we're breaking the rules.   What a bunch of party poopers.
Granted, the person writing the post (not going to post a link - you can find it in the Bead Soup Cafe group posts on the ever snarkier Facebook), is from CANADA - but she does list both American and Canadian legal guidelines, and the Facebook rules as well.  Double party poopers. 
So I guess we're going to have to figure out another clever, outside the box (and inside the rules?) way of having fun with our followers.  Thinking caps on, oh creative ones.  We can still figure out a way to make it work!

Let's do some THOUGHTFUL beading today,

This is the statement I found on Facebook. Sure enough - they've got rules:

b. By “communication” we mean promoting, advertising or referencing a promotion in any way on Facebook, e.g., in ads, on a Page, or in a Wall post.
