Osortoo and Comment Picker are two different platforms that allow you to pick giveaway winners from comments on social media posts. Both of them have other services available but in this article we will focus on Social Media Picker by Osortoo and Random Comment Picker by Comment Picker.
For this study we are going to compare both platforms with a consumer eye and be as honest as possible for you to be able to pick the tool that best fits your needs. In the following table we will compare the two platforms based on criteria that will allow us to differentiate them and show their strengths and weaknesses. We have decided not to include criteria that both platforms do not offer and focus on what they do offer.
|Need to create an account||yes||no|
|Maximum number of comments for free draw||50||no limit|
|Multi platforms winner picker||yes||yes|
|Filter: minimum of @mentions in a comment||yes||yes|
|Filter: include comment replies||yes||yes|
|Filter: remove duplicate users||yes||yes|
|Filter: only comment that have a special “text”||yes||yes|
|Filter: add extra entries||yes||yes|
|Filter: blacklist users||yes||yes|

|Filter: more tags gives more chances to win||yes||no|
|Pick multiple winners||yes||no|
|Works for IGTV||no||yes|
|Asks for the links of your posts||no||yes|
After this comparison, we can see that both products are very similar and your needs will determine the one you choose to use. Both platforms are easy and safe to use. With Osortoo, you can only make a draw if you have previously created an account, which is not necessary to do with Comment Picker. In terms of pricing, Comment Picker offers a wider range of free tools compared to Osortoo. However, Osortoo has more filters that can be applied to the draw. On the visual part, while Comment Picker allows you to share the winner on your social media account, it doesn’t give you an aesthetic template to post with it as Osortoo does.
A major difference between the two platforms is that Osortoo can pick multiple winners in your draw unlike Comment Picker. On the other hand, Comment Picker allows you to draw a comment from an IGTV post, unlike Osortoo. Osortoo also allows you to access your previous draws at any time in your account. Both platforms allow you to draw a new winner if you want to. Osortoo has an option where you can record the whole process of your draw to prove to your audience its legitimacy, which Comment Picker does not have. Finally, in terms of customer service, they can both be contacted via email and social media if you have questions or need assistance. Osortoo even has a live chat available.
We now have a good idea of what each platform does and doesn’t. It is your time to choose the right one for you. Considering the elements we just cited, Osortoo is probably more appropriate for businesses because of its pricing and legitimacy whereas Comment Picker is more suitable for anyone starting in social media and on a budget.
