Ok mums not sure where I am supposed to air my disappointment but here will be a start. i have just received a email about doing a survey about golden crumpets and question 7 asked did I post about the crumpets on facebook , well I ticked no, as I do not have a facebook account and have NO intention on getting one. I proceeded on to question 8 which was about how many people I told on facebook, and as I do not have facebook I left this question blank but the survey would not let me proceed and only allowed me to enter I had facebook. I am getting very annoyed about the amount of companies using and expecting us ALL to have facebook and so many competitions are only run by facebook these days. I feel that this is discrimination and people should have the choice to choose if they wish to enter a comp by facebook or by other means. Just wondering if anyone else had a problem with the survey and if there are any mums out there that are NOT on facebook.

  • Yes l know what you mean,not every-one wants to be on facebook!


  • What annoys me is competitions advertised on Facebook….but you have to go to Instagram or Twitter. Why have it on Facebook if you have to enter somewhere else?! I don’t have and don’t intend to have Instagram or Twitter, not even fir the competitions :/


  • stories are great to read


  • nice story to have a read


  • Facebook does seem to be a requirement for many things these days.


  • yeah it is annoying but these are the times


  • Have also noticed lately that there are more pininterest and twitter comps about.


  • It makes it tricky of you don’t want to have a Facebook account but want to participate in competitions etc based around them.


  • The companies want you to share the comp with all your friends, that how they can afford to have prizes to give away, because we are being their marketers free of charge for them.


  • i don’t mind Facebook competitions, but don’t like pinterest ones


  • I opened up a Facebook account so that I could keep up with my kids. However over the last ten years, I have been told by people in business that I can’t have a passbook account at the bank, I have to process money by direct debit, I can’t enter a competition if I don’t have the internet or a mobile phone number and the children get their assignments from school on the internet, so I have no choice but to buy these items. Where is democracy?

    • Agree 100% Susan, and by the way your puppy just melted my heart, oh sooo cute.


  • I emailed mouthsofmums and I am now pleased to say the glitch in the survey has been fixed.

    Although I am sorry to say fb is still needed for many competitions.


  • Quite a few competitions expect you to have twitter also which I refuse to get.


  • Try keying in 0


  • Thank you everyone I loved reading your comments, and are pleased to hear that some of you do not have facebook as well, also for those who do have a fb account it nice that you feel us none fb folk should have a choice.
