Now that Facebook page administrators can create promotions such as contests directly on their Timelines without being required to use third-party applications, Facebook app developer Woobox is offering a free method to help page admins pick the winners of those contests.

Woobox said in a post on its blog that once page admins login with Facebook to its dashboard, they can simply select their pages from the drop-down menu, select the contest post, and either:

  • Choose a random winner based on the post’s like total.
  • Select a winner from all Facebook users who commented on the post, with the option of choosing from one entry or multiple entries per profile.

Page admins can also export lists of users who liked and commented on their posts.
