2. Step by step.
2.1. Publish the post.
Publish the post on your wall. We show you an example:
2.2. Create your Sweepstake on Cool Tabs.
Enter to Cool Tabs, create a new campaign and select the Facebook Sweepstakes application.
In order to collect information about your sweepstake publication, you need to associate your Facebook profile with your Cool Tabs account.
By linking your Facebook profile, all the pages you manage will be registered on Cool Tabs. So the next step will be to select the Facebook page where you have published the draw.
If the fanpage is not listed, click on 'I can't find my fanpage'. You will be redirected to Facebook to check if you have given us access to that fanpage. If you're still having trouble, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we can help you.
After choosing the fanpage, a new screen will appear in which you will have to select the post (or posts) of your sweepstake. You can run the contest on one or more posts at a time.
In this screen you can specify a name for your draw, so you can identify it in the campaigns list. In addition, you can set the start and end date of the draw, as well as how users will participate (making 'like' in the publication, commenting on it or both).
Once you have completed these steps, the app starts to manage your sweepstake inmediately. If there had been any likes or comments before the creation osf your sweepstake with Cool Tabs, data would be collected without problem. Facebook Sweepstake app allows you to add new publications related to the contest. Go to the campaings list, find your sweepstake and click on the edit icon. Then on 'Add more posts'.
2.2. Select winners.
To choose winners, go to the left sidebar and click on 'Winners' section.
When choosing the winner or winners you can filter according to the conditions of participation you set:

3. Other specifications.
