Running a social media contest? (2 posts)

    I'd like to run a social media contest where I ask people to mention my WordPress site on Twitter or Facebook. I have two donated books to give as prizes, but I have no idea how to track the participation in something like this or how to pick a random winner.

    I've been searching for a day or two and have found a couple paid services that might do what I want, but I'd like find a free way to do it if I can.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    It looks like asking people to use a twitter hashtag is the easiest way to run a contest and track the entrants. Facebook also has a lot of restrictions about contests, so I might skip that.

    What about picking a winner from comments on my blog? Is there anyway to export the contact info and comments from a WordPress post into a spreadsheet?
