Is "Pay with a tweet/like/follow" allowed and guidelines compliant?


I'm just wondering whether all these pay with a tweet/like/follow features appearing on more and more websites are something that is compliant with Facebook/Twitters/anyone else's terms of service/guidelines - or is it just that as long as it does no harm or you aren't forced to like/tweet/follow, these giants don't care... I know that now Kellogg's are actually offering their new flakes for as much as a tweet per pack. I also do know that, for example, on Facebook it is possible to run promotions right inside a custom tab on your page, offering rewards for liking the page, but that's on Facebook itself and not on your own website... So is it something that is all good - you think someone could open a whole store online where you pay with nothing but likes, follows and tweets?

According to the terms and conditions of these social networks pay with like, tweet or follow is not on their terms and conditions. However, being that the sites are also used to create money, people feel they can do that provided they don't violate the laws that govern them. It does no harm neither do they force people to like their pages but at the end, they know what they gain. If it were a problem, I think the officials would have sent notifications to everyone with that habit.
