    I want to run monthly contest on my fan page and be able to randomly pick a winner.. Is there an app that does this? I searched on google can't find anything. Maybe not using the right keywords.

    Any help appreciated.

    If it's possible this is how I would do it:

    Take the number of fans that you have, for example let's say it's 1000.

    Go to a free, random number generator website like: http://www.random.org/

    Type in the numbers 1 - 1000 (or however many fans you have) and the site will pluck a random number.

    You then scroll down the pages of your fans (say it's 50 fans per page or whatever) and select the fan who resides at the randomly picked number.

    Fair and unbiased way to go about it. :)
