I hear that Facebook is banning incentives to “Like” pages. How does this affect Buzzinar?

Facebook is banning the common practice of offering people an incentive to Like a page to get additional content or the view the actual page; this will go into effect on November 5th 2014.

You may have wondered how this might affect your Buzzinar funnels, particularly the Buzzinar WordPress plug-in (or the HTML equivalent) software.
The short answer is… it doesn’t affect Buzzinar funnels at all.

This is because of 2 reasons:
1. The Buzzinar software does not do a Like of a Facebook page it does a Share to show a part of a Web page (like a WordPress page).
2. The banning is only related to Facebook app/pages and the Buzzinar software is not meant to be used on those; I’m not entirely sure it could even be used in that situation because of #1.

So, you don’t need to be concerned about any of the Buzzinar funnels that use the software.
