Here are a few tips to Winning, Requesting and Removing Free Stuff on Facebook!
When you’re on any Facebook page, you have two view options to view the page usually. One is the brand name (i.e., Scrubbing Bubbles). The other is “Most Recent.” Always make sure you click the brand name link because that is what will update once a notification is out that they are live.
One final note, is pay attention to the left side links. One of them may be where the offer is live when they notify their wall viewers. So, if you click on any appropriate links (or apps) that are for the giveaway (i.e., the “Free 4 Fans” link) you may see it live before they announce it!
Most of the time you can request the offer right on Facebook. Sometimes you will be directed to the company’s website to complete the information.
If the offer is a really hot one (i.e., the Bounty $5 coupon), it will likely be slammed with people trying to get one. This causes an error or for the requesting page to be blank. When this happens, refresh the screen until you see something to be able to complete.
During the offer, you may have been asked to give permission to the site to publish to your page. If you do agree to do this, don’t fret – you can easily remove it (which I always do). If you have to add an app, or third party permission, to your page you can easily remove that as well. Here’s how:
Depending on how many apps you have this can take a while! At least you have them gone and don’t need to worry about having something attached to your account that you really have no desire for!
And, of course you can “unlike” a page really easily. Just visit that page and scroll to the bottom on the left and select “unlike.” Their updates will no longer show in your feed.
