Dear Focal Pointers,

Join us on Facebook for an exclusive chance to win one of two Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 Android tablets from Samsung. This would be a great time for you to entice your colleagues to also join Focal Point.

Whether you want to use it for work (deploying WebFOCUS mobile apps) or for play, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is one of the top-rated tablets currently on the market. And we've just launched a Facebook promotion exclusively for registered Focal Point users.

All it takes is a "Like" on Facebook, your name and e-mail address and you'll be entered to win.

Enter here: Information Builders' Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 Giveaway for Focal Point members.

No purchase necessary, open to residents of the US and Canada ages 18 and over. Promotion ends October 10, 2012. See full terms and conditions here.



Good luck!

Sincerely,

Kathleen Butler
Customer Care and Communications Manager
Information Builders, Inc.

Hi Kathleen,

I activated the "Like" on Facebook but through my personnal email. Is that correct to participate? If not, please tell me what should I do. Confused

Thanks.

Hi, George. That disclaimer is a requirement for any promotion done on Facebook. If we leave it out then Facebook can (and will) disable our Facebook page.

The way we do the entry form is via a secure page on our web site displayed as an iframe within the Facebook environment. So we actually do not even make a call to the Facebook privacy module nor do we share any of this information with Facebook. Unless you tick the box that says "Please contact me" we don't hold onto that name and e-mail address for any longer than we need it to draw a winner.

Hope that helps.

Regards,

Chris

Hi, marikaki,

As long as the e-mail address you supplied on the entry form matches the one you use for focal point, you'll be eligible to win. It doesn't matter which email address is associated with your facebook account.

Hope that helps.

The part I don't like is having to get on FB at all.

Don't use and most likely never will.

Hi John,

We will look into doing another promotion solely for Focal Point. I especially would like to publish more customer tips and techniques. Send me a private message with your ideas.

If you have any questions about the Focal Point/Facebook promotion please don't hesitate to contact me at Kathleen_Butler@ibi.com or Kerry_Zhan@ibi.com.

Best of luck!!

Thanks,

Kathleen Butler

I second the comment on not wanting to get onto Facebook. I'd like the Galaxy, but not enough to sign up for Facebook. Focal Point is as social as I get. Wink

Hi Michael,

That means I'll need a tip from you on the latest Salmon tracking down the Columbia River using Rstat. What an interesting case study.

For the folks that are on Facebook this is a great contest for them.

We will have another incentive for non Facebook folks soon.

Thanks,

Kathleen Butler

Exactly. Smiler

No, more like because doing Sweepstakes outside the US and Canada is extremely complicated from a legal standpoint and our corporate counsel won't touch that.

Sorry!

@Chris

Yes I know why. It IS complicated.


But may I suggest a subject change:

"Exclusive Offer for (SOME) Focal Point members - Win a Samsung Galaxy 2 tablets".


___
It's just a rant. It seems like 'the rest of the world' sometimes simply doesn't exist. IBI want to position itself as a world-player. They should act accordingly.
Or AT LEAST act as if they are aware 'them others' also are on the recieving end of the communications.
It's a good thing it mentioned directly in the post and somewhere in 'the full terms'.

Bonjour,
We, French Guys, as you know, are the light of this world. So, I'm sure that IBF will bring on 'Le Bon Coin' plenty of Galaxies.
Thanks in advance
Waz, I'm frightfully jealous of your concision, you say so much with so little.
