Filter duplicate users
If this filter is enabled it will filter out multiple comments made by one user. A user is defined by a user ID that we get from Facebook.
User should have liked the post
If this filter is selected, we will get all likes and reactions on your post. We will 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.

Add extra entries
You can add extra entries by selecting the option "Add extra entries". You will see a textarea where you can add names of the extra entries. These extra entries are not connected to the commenters and will be added to the total amount of comments. You can add each entry by a newline or separated by comma. You can use this option to add participants who liked your page or who shared the posts or signed up for your newsletter.
