What is Pick a Winner for Facebook & Instagram?

Pick a Winner is a free tool that allows you to randomly select a winner for your simultaneous giveaway or contest on both Facebook and Instagram. The tool retrieves all comments from the selected Facebook post and Instagram media, and chooses a winner based on your chosen raffle settings.

This tool can only be used if you have a professional Instagram Business account which is connected to a Facebook business page. It cannot be used with a personal Instagram profile.

Store results

After a draw, it's possible to store the results by clicking the copy link of on of the share buttons. This will save the results, create a unique URL for you and make the winner's information, such as their profile link and comment, visible to those who access the URL.

The tool will automatically create a unique URL for you with the results of the contest, making it easy for you to share the winner's information. The results will be available for at least one month before being removed.

Facebook & Instagram settings & filters

After you have chosen your Instagram & Facebook giveaway post, you will have the ability to select options for your contest. We will provide more information about these options below.

Minimum amount of friends tagged

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

Include comment replies

If you enable this option comment replies are included in the comments. By default, comment replies are excluded in the contest.

Filter duplicate users

If this filter is enabled it will filter out multiple comments made by one user. A user is defined by a unique user ID. We can not filter users that comment on Instagram and Facebook, because they have different ID's.

Filter comments based on a specific 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.

Extra entries

If you enable this option you will see add textarea where you can enter extra entries to your giveaway or contest. You can add the names of the extra entries in this field and separate them by newline or comma. We will display you the amount of extra entries that you added. The extra entries will always be added, even when the duplicated filter option is turned on. Extra entries can be useful when you want to pick from likes or shares as well.

Exclude or block users

You can exclude user by selecting the option "Exclude / block users". You will see a textarea where you can add names of the users you want to exclude from the contest. You can add each name by a newline or separated by comma. This option can also be useful if you want to exclude previous winners from winning again. You should enter the Instagram username with or without @ to filter an Instagram user and add the name of the Facebook user which is displayed on their FB profile to filter a Facebook user.
