Get your hands on a shiny new iPad 2! Just think, you'll be able to Mumsnet with ease from bed.....

To be in with a chance of winning, hop over to Facebook (only briefly, we promise) and enter our competition.

After that, come back to Mumsnet wink

We have regular competitions on our Facebook page, and in the past have given away holidays, wine and even gin, so keep an eye on our page for exciting new giveaways!

They want too much. Access to my friends list and mn nickname? I'm too chicken! (Although I do actually need an ipad)

I cancelled at that point. I don't belong to facebook and I don't think DH would be very impressed if I let them into his account.

i hate facebook

I did it. Not sure about access to fb but my DS has sn and an ipad would make such a difference to him - so took the chance!

BeetleBugBaby Tue 17-Sep-13 21:34:03

guys you don't have to link to FB as far as I can tell thats optional. Just cancel the fb box

Bonkerz Tue 17-Sep-13 21:35:48

I changed the permission to me only!

Faverolles Tue 17-Sep-13 21:58:18

I think I've done it.

gleegeek Tue 17-Sep-13 22:16:53

I think I've done it too. Bloody Facebook is taking over the world - it seems we'll have to have a FB account to go to the loo soonwink

Steffanoid Tue 17-Sep-13 22:40:42

I did it. it only wants to know your name through facebook and then the post I changed to just me being able to see it I think ...

BreakingBadger Tue 17-Sep-13 23:03:41

Yep not doing FB and MN name linked... no siree.

Done, The "post to FB" page crashed so I have no idea if it posted or not.
By the way, on the OP, the link is misspelt "competiton".

Would love to enter but as PP said, that's too much info to be giving out.

ninilegsintheair Wed 18-Sep-13 09:28:35

Entered but don't like how you're encouraged to spam your friends into entering to give you a better chance of winning.

AllThatGlistens Wed 18-Sep-13 09:29:50

Done, but altered privacy settings

I don't 'do' facebook work of the devil

Is this discrimination against those of us who don't use FB ? angry.

BeetleBugBaby Wed 18-Sep-13 10:17:04

FGS, Just cancel the box, it's merely asking if you want to share it with your FB friends, you simply tell it now and click cancel on the FB box, you will still be entered into the comp!

Hi all,

Thanks for the feedback, please do keep it coming!

We think that the iPad is a fab prize not at all bitter that we can't win it envy and we wanted to make sure you all heard about it and our Facebook page which can keep you up to date with what is going on at HQ, webchats, campaigns etc blah blah funny etc

We know folks are concerned about privacy, as are we, it is something we take very seriously. Can we please reassure you all that we will NEVER link your RL name with your MN name and unless you were to post on MN or FB what your RL and MN NN and RL names are, they can never be linked to the outside world.

We do have lots of great comps and offers on Facebook and lots more planned, pop over and like us to keep up to date with all of the latest.

If you are at all concerned or have any questions, then please do ask and we will happily explain.

Done (I think)
