Facebook Is Banning “Like To Download” apps
As you might heard in the last 4 days, Facebook will change the Terms and Conditions for Pages. The new T&C will include these lines: – You must not incentivize people to use social plugins or to like a Page. This includes offering rewards, or gating apps or app content based on whether or not a person has liked a Page. It remains acceptable to incentivize people to login to your app, checkin at a place or enter a promotion on your app’s Page. To ensure quality connections and help businesses reach the people who matter to them, we want people to like Pages because they want to connect and hear from the business, not because of artificial incentives. We believe this update will benefit people and advertisers alike. –
The change will effectively eliminate “Like To Download” applications that exchange download access to songs, remixes, soundpacks, etc. in return for a press of the Like button on a page. Djtechtools sums up the things quite nicely, and we are totally agree with them.
You might remember how we feel about Facebook, and collecting more and more likes to reach less and less people does not make any sense to us. Artists please wake up finally, Facebook is the worst place to promote your music.
