I don't have a facebook account and don't want one. What are the alternative means of entering this draw?

the t&cs of the competition state that you MUST be a slingshot facebook "fan" to enter - so if you have no facebook account then you are out of luck.

Seems kind of typical these days.  It's Facebook or you treated as a pleb..

Now would this be a case for the Human Rights Commission.  Discrimination  against people who don't use Facebook..

Pretty Negitive outlook.

Slingshot gave away some things on here the other week then Twitter and now Facebook, equal rights to everyone, gotta be fair and all.

Hi guys, 



If you are interested in signing up for a FREE modem then go like our Facebook page. 


The flaw in your argument is, I gave away a FREE Linksys ATA just the other week on Geekzone itself, this wasn't offered to Facebook. I gave away a FREE Panasonic phone the other week on Twitter, this wasn't offered anywhere else either. Chances are you guys could have singed up for all three of the current and previous promotions.

Thanks,
Ben

hold on, this thread implies that if you like your page you get a free modem, but the page itself says that you only have 2 to give away and that you will only go into a draw to get the modem.

So is it 'free modem' or is it 'win a modem'?

It is a competition, the post has been edited to reflect this.

Hi, I will be making a Google Plus page soon. We just wanted to get our other Social Media pages sorted before moving into new ones.



Cheers,
