Random Comment Picker is a free online tool to easily generate a winner for a Facebook lottery, giveaway, contest or promotion.
By entering the URL of your Facebook post, we can retrieve all comments and filter duplicate names. You can pick a random winner out of all the comments by pressing the Start button.
This giveaway tool does not require you to enter all the names individually to choose a winner for your competition or contest. We need your Facebook login to be able to get all the comments of a single post from the Facebook API. Unfortunately, we can't always get all comments for every post due to privacy settings.
We don't have access to personal profiles or posts from other (public) pages.
