Draw your Facebook contest winners easily online!
What is Onnetar?
Onnetar is a tool for picking up Facebook contest winners. With Onnetar, you can draw a random comment on a Facebook post of your choice. In addition to the name of the winner, you will receive a link to the winning comment so you can respond to it with DM. This way, you can easily complete Facebook draws and also contact the winner directly.
Onnetar is in BETA testing, I do not guarantee its functionality or continuation if the API changes. However, I work to keep the app updated as needed.
Note that if the publication has more than 1000 comments, it will take some time for the post-selection step to load.
Why does Onnetar only draw from the comments?
According to the Facebook Policies, only comments or likes can be used as a condition to enter the contest / draw. Because it is difficult to reach a mere post-liker via Facebook, the Onnetar lottery will only be drawn from those who have commented. (I’ve summarized the Facebook sweepstakes rules here).
