Was never a big fan of the multiple entry sweepstakes because they favor those that are social butterfly's and more recently require smartphones. These can also be seen as voluntary data mining of personal information. Logging in using facebook gives access to pics, vids, posts and more. Lots of information can be derived from these kinds of things.

Now lets ask why they want this access shall we. The answer is quite simple in fact, it is for marketing purposes. This way they can try to target the consumer in a way that influences them to purchase there particular brand. This is quite simply a spend a few bucks and make thousands from it. OK I'm on a bit of a rant but my main point is that the social butterfly gets better odds than one that doesn't use some of the programs for entry's.
