Nothing to click, to visit...
Competition Ts & Cs should include full disclosure of what information, from social media, is harvested by Gleam and what they will do with it.
Can any be harvested, from a 'visit'...?
I had this, used tab to cycle through clickable thingies and got it up.
Perfick... ta muchly.
don't have facebook, dont have instagram, dont have twitter.
wish these sort of competitions would just die, hexus can manage to run a competition in a sensible way, why cant anyone else?
The only entry on the list that requires a social media account is the Twitter one.
You don't need Facebook or Instagram for this competition, it says to just visit their pages not to login and follow/like them.
The purpose of Gleam & its usefulness seem to be at odds for many people.
What makes it worse is that while the world is split into those who bury themselves in social media, those who 'dabble' & those who abstain, the use of anything that requires 'any' interaction with social media is likely to cause confusion as to what level of interaction is required. Many see the 'social media interaction' requirement & don't immediately know what 'level' of interaction is required (abstainers, mostly).
Without expressly detailing what is required to action an option, barriers go up & audience participation is reduced.
Add in that some peoples fears relating to data breaching are heightened and you risk further reduction in audience participation.
I can't help wondering if the likes of Gleam require a minimum participation level to be viable to use...? If only 3 people entered this 'giveaway' (highly unlikely, but...), would it have been worth using Gleam?
The word 'visit' is right there on the button. I'm not sure what could be clearer unless you pack the definition of 'visit' onto the button too, though that may become unweildy and make the CSS cry.
We're too 'enlightened' to see if from the viewpoint of anyone who isn't... I just suggested why.
the HEXUS one that mentions visiting the sponsor on Facebook, visiting HEXUS on Facebook and giving another entry on Facebook? The one that has a ton of back end code I have to maintain? No thanks. I'll stick to the gleam one that takes less than 5 minutes to create.
Since when did a doge ever have any trouble taking care of it's back end...??
"I really hate the way you give away free stuff!"
You know what then, why don't you buy a bit-tech t-shirt?
Technically not free as we are providing a service to them:
Bit-tech and BeQuiet are buying page views from us so the algorithms of the social media sites in question are more likely to promote them.
You must be a lot of fun at parties.
You mean to say a company has a reason for running a competition other than a pure desire to give people things for free?!
