One of the most frequent questions we're asked is how a contest can be published on a Facebook Page. A Page is not the same as a personal profile. A Facebook Page represents a business or public figure and has followers instead of friends.
A Page or Business Manager account cannot be used to access Facebook apps. You have to create the contest using your personal Facebook profile. Once you get to the Publish section (see image below), click the Add to Facebook Page button to publish the contest on your Facebook Page.
Polls for Pages, Contests for Pages and Quizzes for Pages are the three tools we offer to help you interact with your fans and grow your business on Facebook. In this blog post, we look at the main differences between these apps so you can decide which ones best fit your needs.
When you create a contest on Facebook, we give you tools to invite your friends and publish the contest on a page you manage. But sometimes that’s not enough and you need to reach a larger audience with a Facebook promoted post.
We are pleased to announce you can now make contests directly from your Facebook Page Timeline. You simply ask a question and followers enter the giveaway by commenting the post. The application parses the comments and compiles all the answers. You can draw a winner and export all the answers to Excel like in a regular form contest.
