Facebook giveaway settings & filters

Once you've chosen your Facebook page, you can proceed to select options for your contest. We'll provide an explanation of those options below.

Include comment replies

If this filter is enabled, comment replies are included in the comments. By default, comment replies are excluded and only the first level of comments are included in the contest.

Filter duplicate users

If this filter is enabled, it will remove multiple comments made by the same user. A user is identified by a unique user ID obtained from Facebook.

Filter comments by number of friends tagged

If you select this option, a comment should have a minimum number of friends mentioned before it's included as entry in the raffle. You can choose up to 10 friends mentioned. By default, it's not required to have a friend mentioned.

User should have liked the post

If this filter is selected, we get all likes and reactions on your post. We filter out users that didn't give a like on your post based on the user ID. This option is useful when your giveaway rules are that the user should like and comment on your posts in order to win.

Filter comments based by words or text

If you enable this filter, an extra text field will appear where you can enter a specific text, hashtag or answer. A comment should have this text included before it's included in the contest.

Filter comments by like count

When you enable this filter, an additional number field will appear, allowing you to input a minimum number of likes. To be included as entry, comments must have at least received this number of likes.

A comment must contain a photo

If this checkbox is enabled, a comment must include an image uploaded by the Facebook user. A Facebook sticker or GIF does not count as an image. This filter can be useful to use for `share a photo and win contests`.

Add extra entries

You can add extra entries by selecting the option "Add extra entries". You will see a field where you can add the names of the extra entries. These entries are not connected to the commenters and will always be added to the comments. You can use this option to add extra changes for users who liked your page, who shared the post or signed up for your newsletter.

Exclude users

You can exclude user by selecting the option "Exclude users". You will see a field where you can add names of the users you want to exclude from the contest. This option is useful if you want to exclude previous winners from winning again or to block spam accounts. You should enter the exact name displayed on the Facebook profile of the user.
