The inevitable has finally reared its ugly head. It appears that Facebook is implementing a policy, one in which you, my steadfast devoTees, will most likely be affected in a negative way. Perhaps it is not a new policy, but it is one they will be enforcing more aggressively from now on.
From its conception, teeVillain has always remunerated my patrons with a daily giveaway or “corruption” if you will, most commonly in the form of a free t-shirt. This is, and has always been simply the manifestation of my appreciation for every fiend who waves the banner of teeVillain, whether it is by purchasing my offerings, or by spattering their love and support across all canvases of social media. You are the most important people, and I will always take care of my own.
That being said, Facebook has declared that pages who post images with words such as “Like, Share, Comment” are baiting followers to engage in said posts. Pages who continue to promote this type of content will be punished by having all of their posts suppressed. “Spammy” is the word I think that was used. Now, I am not sure what it all has to do with canned meat, but I do recognize that if they choose to choke off my reach, I will assuredly suffocate, so to speak. For this reason, my only option is to extinguish all Facebook giveaways from this point forward.
ALL HOPE IS NOT LOST! PLEASE READ ON!

EDIT: Unfortunately too much abuse is happening with this giveaway. I knew this would happen, but was not anticipating so much, so soon.
I will need to rethink this.
Thank you for your time, understanding, and unyielding support for my plans of Global World Domination™.
