The Student Facebook Competition

Progress

Confused & Bemused? Read our FAQs

WHAT DO I DO?

Easy. Start at the Leaderboard (http://www.facebook.com/universityfaceoff?sk=app_165470116820155) then select your university from the dropdown. A new window will open with the logo. Simply ‘Like’, ‘Comment’ on and ‘Tag’ yourself in the image to automatically award points for your university’s campaign.

WHAT ARE BONUS POINTS?

Aside from the basic 3 steps of getting points, you can rack up a lot more points by clicking on the ‘Bonus Points’ tab in the sidebar (http://www.facebook.com/universityfaceoff?sk=app_158788450839828). Select your uni from the list, then carry out the tasks available to get bonus points. This is how university’s can really climb up the leaderboard thanks to your support.

WHERE CAN I PUT POSTERS UP TO GET POINTS?

Good question. Posters must be put up in communal student areas, eg. halls, libraries, tutor group rooms. Points will only be awarded for posters deemed to be placed in a prominent position which clearly promote the University's campaign to other students. After all, that's the point isn't it?

WHAT ELSE CAN I DO?

Pester your university office and SU about pushing out communication to students. The better a university does, the more exposure and recognition it will acheive across the national study body and in the press. So it’s in their best interest! In 2011, several unis (including the winning Aberystwyth University) sent out emails to students which saw a massive response and support.

Other than that, share the page, statuses and uni logos with your friends. You can also Tag your uni mates in any of your comments.

HOW DO I NAVIGATE AROUND THE PAGE?

Use the ‘Tabs’ or links on the left, under the main page profile image.

WHAT? FACEBOOK WON’T LET ME TAG MYSELF!

That’s because your university community has exceeded itself, and the set Facebook Tag limit of 50. So be proud!

We will be looking into ways we can increase the amount of Tag points we can award in the future.

MY COMMENTS OR LIKES ARE NOT SHOWING UP?

This is a big, annoying, smelly Facebook glitch. 99% of the time your comment or interaction is saved, it just doesn’t show up for a while because Facebook loves using caches which speed up the site at the expense of being up-to-date.

WHEN IS THE LEADERBOARD UPDATED?

Daily, on the dot, at 6pm. Magic!

WHEN DOES THE COMPETITION END?

6pm on 31st March 2012.

YO! THE iPAD 3 ISN’T OUT YET!

Yo! It is strongly rumoured to be by the time the competition is over. If not, we’ll give the winner the option of either waiting til it’s out or sending them an iPad 2.
