Thank you for your interest in Barbara's Beat.

April 16, 2009, Barbara's Beat began blogging about family issues; helping moms find deals, coupons and resources to save money, and make life easier; learn through reviews, and win giveaways; and keep updated about consumer issues.

We also promote MOMentrepreneurs and DADentrepreneurs.

With three grandchildren, a niece and nephew, we run the gamut from little girl parties, princesses, balls, cooking and Barbies; baby items; toddler items; to four-wheeling, sports, hunting and  more.

Barbara's profile

N.C. Grandma of three: boy 16, boy 14, girl 7. Aunt of two; a 4-year-old girl and 1-year-old boy.
Married 38 years, wife of a retired First Sgt. in the US Army. We served four tours in Germany.

I’m 56 and medically retired in 2004 due to chronic pain, and failed operations. I have more bad days than I care to discuss, and Barbara's Beat is the only thing that helps keep my mind active when I can do it.


We offer honest, valuable product reviews and giveaways on Barbara's Beat as a mutual benefit to your company, by bringing attention to your products or services, while providing a service to our readers as they learn the truth about products as well as winning them.

When we do a review, we use hi-res photos you provide, as well as take our own with the product in use if possible. We also use information about the product that you provide, as well as our own information about the product.

We do provide some media links such as Twitter, Etsy, Pinterest, Instagram, Bloglovin', and Facebook in a review. However, when another product is offered by your company for a giveaway, those media are on the Rafflecopter as well.

On the Rafflecopter, we select things for the readers to do, like join or follow different media of yours for entries. They also do and follow Barbara's Beat for entries. They may choose which things they wish to do depending on how bad they want to win the item. The more they do, the more chances they have to win. We don't like to make any entries mandatory.

When the end date arrives, Rafflecopter draws a winner, and we send it to you with the winner's information and you send their prize ASAP.

We must advise you we do all of our posts no-follow. That is to keep Google happy with us and with you. If this is something that doesn't make you happy, then I'm sorry, but we will not change our policy for any reason.  
  • At this time, we always use Rafflecopter.
  • We always use pics - yours and ours.
  • We always link the products to the sponsor’s site.
  • We always send a link to the sponsor when we post the review/giveaway.
  • We always use all the sponsor’s media – Twitter, YouTube, Etsy, Pinterest, etc. 
  • We always have our posts – all posts - sent out two ways - by RSS and email subscribers.
  • We always have our posts automatically sent to Twitter, G+ and FB. 
  • We also post the giveaway links on our Pinterest boards such as Giveaways Galore. 
  • We always try to post the links on our sponsor’s FB page, too, but it helps if you also promote it on your media.

FTC Disclosures

By Facebook

At f8 2014, we announced a new version of the Graph API v2.0. We also announced that moving forward, the primary way we'd release changes to our Platform would be through new API versions. Versioning provides a 2-year stability guarantee for Core APIs and gives you control over when you upgrade different instances of your app to use the latest platform features.
Today, we're pleased to announce the release of Graph API v2.1 as well as updated iOS and Android SDKs designed to work with this new version.

Version 2.1 incorporates several commonly requested features that build on the changes in v2.0 with the goal of increasing consistency and simplicity for developers. It's available today to all apps — and is now the default version for all new apps.

For a full list of features, please refer to the changelog and the v2.0 to v2.1 upgrade guide.

v2.1 Feature Highlights

  • Pages are able to mention other Pages in posts published via the API. If you want to publish mentions of pages other than those managed by your app's developers, you'll need to submit for review by Facebook.
  • /friends edge on the User object now provides access to total friend count. This is retroactively supported in v2.0 as well.
  • The root node of v2.1 Graph API responses will always be a JSON object - rather than raw booleans, integers or strings.
  • API v2.1 provides access to the data displayed in the new App Insights through a new 'app_insights' edge on the Application object.
  • Field expansion syntax is now more concise.
  • A new URL node makes it easier to access Open Graph and Share metadata for that URL.

Breaking Changes and Deprecations

  • FQL and the REST API are not available in v2.1. They remain available in v1.0 until April 30, 2015 and v2.0 until August 7, 2016.
  • The syntax for field expansion has become more concise in v2.1 — but the previous syntax will still be accepted. v1.0 and v2.0 have also been updated to now accept both the previous syntax and the new syntax.
  • The Login Dialog no longer accepts the legacy return_session and session_version parameters.
  • The /insights edge will be removed from the Application object in v1.0 and v2.0 on November 5, 2014 (90 days from today). You should update your apps to call /v2.1/{app_id}/app_insights instead.
  • The liked field will no longer be returned in the page property of the signed_request object for Page Tab apps created from today onwards. For apps created before today, from November 5, 2014 (90 days from today), the liked property will always return true regardless of whether or not the person has liked the page.
  • The Recommendations Bar social plugin has been deprecated. After Wednesday November 5, 2014 (90 days from today), the Recommendations Bar will no longer render on any website.

Changes to FB Platform Policy

In addition to the launch of API v2.1, today, we are announcing two changes to our Platform Policies. Developers should update their apps to comply with these policy changes by November 5, 2014 (90 days from today).
  • Games which include mandatory or optional in-app charges must now disclose this in their app's description, either on Facebook or other platforms it supports. This is to give people a clear indication that your game may charge people during gameplay.
  • You must not incentivize people to use social plugins or to like a Page. This includes offering rewards, or gating apps or app content based on whether or not a person has liked a Page. It remains acceptable to incentivize people to login to your app, checkin at a place or enter a promotion on your app's Page. To ensure quality connections and help businesses reach the people who matter to them, we want people to like Pages because they want to connect and hear from the business, not because of artificial incentives. We believe this update will benefit people and advertisers alike.

How to Upgrade to v2.1

To upgrade to v2.1, mobile developers should download our latest iOS and Android SDKs. Web developers should declare v2.1 in the version property when calling the init() method of the JavaScript SDK and specify v2.1 in your URLs when calling the Graph API.

In line with our 2-year stability guarantee, v2.0 will be deprecated on August 7, 2016. After that date, all apps will automatically be upgraded to v2.1. As announced at f8 2014, v1.0 will be deprecated on April 30, 2015.

With each API version living for at least two years, we're excited to enhance stability, simplicity and consistency across the Graph API. We'll continue to focus on this in future versions. --------
