Crap, I woke up and realized I gave an incorrect kudos. I don't use Facebook either.

I'm glad it's on Facebook, it eliminates a lot of people and increases my odds of winning.

Sweet, except it discriminates people that have no facebook and don't want facebook.

I don't do social media because they are too footloose and fancy free with their privacy policies and every update they push seems to make some chunk or other of private info suddenly available tot he public.

And I can't make much sense of facebook since they converted to these "timeline" pages. It's just a royal jumble!

It's probably because the Quebec premiere was the only one out of them all who didn't join in with the This Hour Has 22 Minutes Christmas Special yesterday.....

Payback's a bitch.

It was exciting news until I found out it is on facebook. Oh well, my personal happiness is more important than a contest.

One of these days, they should add "No Facebook necessary" along with "No purchase necessary."

Well if you really, REALLY, want to know what the prizes are... PM me - because I'm not going to post them here and ruin the "fun" for those who do go to facebook.

And I can tell you right now, these prizes are WAY BETTER than last years contest. When they had the Boxee Boxes.

Nice holiday promo and all, but not for me if it requires facebook...

You should set up an alternative entry method.

And better prizes for the non-Facebook users!!!

Past years TSI had an entry form on their website for non-FB users. Not that it made a difference, I still didn't win a prize But here's hopin' they continue with that.

IMO they should put the entry form in the MyWorld portal if they want to limit it to current customers.

Now that would be NICE. While we're at it, why not prize packages for each POI eh?

It's amazing how many people won't touch facebook with a 10-foot pole. I thought I was the only one.

There's an ever growing number of people who are leaving it, in addition to people like me who have never had an account.

Sadly more people join than leave it, so they still make their bazillions off it.

Yeah, I hope they will still do that. And if they expect everyone to have a FB account, well they're sadly mistaken.

How do you know if someone doesn't use Facebook?

Don't worry, they'll let you know...

Yes, because it's so much more efficient to list all the services we don't use, instead of listing the services we do use.

We'll let you know, if you ask nicely. Or, in this case, if there's a prize involved, and Facebook is required to participate in the lottery, but we don't have a Facebook account, but we still want to participate anyway.

That TSI's customers must create and/or use an account with Facebook to participate is a consequence of an arbitrary decision by TSI, not a consequence of the inherent nature of the lottery.

Here's a better idea.

Since this is a lottery by TSI obviously intended for marketing purpose to increase their customer pool, remove the Facebook exclusivity altogether. Instead, use as many social media as possible, and then put a link to TSI's website, directing potential customers to a page where they can enter their email address without superfluous arbitrary requirements.

As it stands, now we have a link on TSI's website, pointing to the Facebook website, requiring potential customers to create and/or use a Facebook account, to participate in a lottery created by TSI. It's like TSI wants to promote Facebook, suggesting TSI is paid by Facebook for that.

I don't do Facebook. I might, if Facebook pays me.
