Hello, I would like to participate in this contest but I am having trouble figuring out how to upload my picture! when I go to the facebook page and the first yum tab, there is no where else to go. The only option I can see on this page is to "like" could you please help thank you emma

This is the 2nd time I've seen this, that you have to go to facebook to enter a contest. I think it is unfair. I choose not to join the frenzy of facebook and laying my private life out for all to see. Yes, I am a senior and I'm sure there are many who are on FB. We shouldn't be excluded from contests because we choose not to join. That should be illegal, just like you usually don't have to purchase anything to enter. What's up, they don't have enough members at 500 million.
