Westin Charlotte Facebook page giving away 1,000 points for photo/reaching 50 "likes"

Go to Westin Charlotte's facebook page and post a summer vacation photo. Get 50 friends to like it to earn 1,000 SPG points. I figure if we all post a photo there and we each like each other's, we can all help each other pick up 1,000 points.

Here's the FB link: http://www.facebook.com/thewestincharlotte

But, let's be sure to like each other's photos so we can all win

Great idea! Just put (FT) in your post so we can recognize each other and help our FT friends! Mine is called:
Summer holiday at the Sheraton in Fuerteventura, Canary Islands, Spain. (FT)
and is posted on their Facebook page.

Agreed - I'm getting very tired of companies trying to get me to 'like' something so that they can spam me with advertisements

actually you don't have to "like" the westin charlotte for this one, so i don't think they will be able to spam you. you just have to get people to "like" yor picture. but who knows.

that being said, i'm in. Blue Palace, Crete (FT)

edit: you do have to like the westin charlotte to like another photo on their page. i guess i already liked them and didn't even remember... so they must not spam a lot.

But you have to sigh up for FB and give them your SPG number.

Ive participated in Westin CLT's promotions in the past. I have never been spammed before. Occasionally, theyll post a photo or make a comment on their wall that shows up in my news feed, but I can hide them if I choose. This is an easy 1,000 points for people who are on Facebook. But, people have to like each other's photos. As it stands now, people are only liking their own and no one elses!

I must be the only person with a fake facebook account. I have it set up to an ancient email address I rarely check, so I don't care if anyone spams the account.

Did you also give them a fake SPG account?

Some of us don't care about the SPAM, but simply don't want to see FB continue to exist. Even fake accounts support FB's existence by increasing their user count and allowing them to charge more for advertising, thus giving them more power and prolonging our agony.
