Please pass this video along to help other folks understand the proper interpretation of the Facebook Page Terms. Thank you!
Bottom line ➡️ You CAN ask people to share your contest on their business Page as a contest entry. You CANNOT ask people to share your contest on their *personal* Timeline (personal profile), or a friend's Timeline, or tag a friend to enter your contest. This is simply due to technical reasons. Facebook states, "...this is because people can choose to limit the visibility of the content they put on Facebook to only themselves, friends, or to a custom group of people, Pages won’t have the ability to access all of the entries that people post on their own Timelines unless these entries are public."
Voila - hope this helps clear up any mysteries and misunderstandings out there!! 
