Nice to see so much going on. Thanks for the post and for the mention!

You are welcome.

I am interested to follow the Facebook advertising campaign.

I wonder if advertising the #winwithsteem contest posts would attract any interest through ads?

It might. The only thing I'd be concerned about is that they may have overly restrictive policies that would define it as promoting gambling. They rejected one of my ads as political because it mentioned "Dr. Fauci".

Dr Fauci !!!

I guess Contests v Gambling may cause some debate.

In a rational world, I think the difference would be pretty clear, but I don't have much confidence in the censors to be reasonable.
