Sweepers Hosting Giveaways – Conflict of Interest?

I had a question I wanted to post for your YouTube question’s people ask. The new trend seems to be people who enter sweepstakes are now hosting sweepstakes of their own. I just wonder if it’s a conflict of interest? I know there are no rules against it but I feel they do it to gain popularity and people will be drawn to their social media pages and use their referral links. What is your opinion on this and should it continue?

Thank you,
Marilyn

    I have seen sweepers hosting giveaways and thought it was there way of sharing a prize they might have no use for. Gaining followers is the return on the investment of their time. I don’t see it as a conflict.

    Our sweeps club does the same with referral links in our FB group – use one person’s, then post yours etc.
