Another BabyTrend Contest

Baby Trend has announced another contest on their Facebook page. If you recall, their last car seat contest was quite the debacle because so many kids were improperly restrained. This time they're awarding points based on kids being "properly restrained," though I do wonder how they'll define that, since the kid in THEIR photo looks to be under 2 and could certainly still be rear-facing.

Anyway, I'm not entering because I don't typically do popularity contests (which these things largely are), but it should be quite interesting to watch :whistle:

This contest is in complete violation of Facebook's contest guidelines. You're not supposed to use Facebook's regular interface for a contest, you have to use an app.

Also you're not supposed to have any CTAs (calls to action - a "click here" type button) in the cover photo, which they do. Wonder if we can turn them in :p.

Hmmm, well they just changed their cover photo (no more click here)

The new photo also sort of makes it out like you have to have a FastBack to enter "Have a trendz FastBack car seat? Show it off!"

I didn't know about the contest thing though, and apparently they aren't worried about that?

I didn't report about the cover photo, maybe someone else did?

And now

Thanks to <snip> for being our first entrant for our "Fast Back on the Road" contest! We're looking forward to seeing more entries throughout the week. We're keeping it simple by having our entrants post on the Wall and will then have a Poll app once the entry period has closed. Good luck to everyone!

The mom that entered is a regular posted on the Diaper Swappers car seat board. She is also a member here. I assure you those two kids are rear facing.

I said something on the contest pic yesterday. Of course they said they "appreciate the suggestion" :rollseyes:
