What is Pick a Winner for Facebook & Instagram?
Pick a Winner is a free online tool where you can pick a winner for your simultaneous giveaway or contest on Facebook and Instagram.
The tool will get all comments from the Facebook post and Instagram media that you select. The tool will choose a random winner based on your selected raffle settings.
This tool can only be used if you have connected your Instagram business or creator account to your Facebook page and can't be used for personal Instagram accounts. To use our tool you must have an Instagram Business profile connected to your Facebook page.
After a draw it's possible to store the results. If you click the button we will save the results and create a unique url for you. This unique url can be used for sharing and will show the winner of the raffle, link to the profile of the winner and comment of the user. The results are available for at least one month and will be removed after.
Update: If you use one of the share buttons, we will create automatically a unique URL for you with the results of the contest.

Pick a Winner options
After selecting your Instagram account you can select options for your contest. We will explain those 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.
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 blacklist users
You can exclude user by selecting the option "Exclude / blacklist 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.
