Apple clamps down on incentived sharing

Two of my apps received this rejection today:
3.10: Developers who attempt to manipulate or cheat the user reviews or chart ranking in the App Store with fake or paid reviews, or any other inappropriate methods will be removed from the iOS Developer Program

We found that your app, or its metadata, includes features or content that can have an excessive influence in the listing order or ranking on the App Store, which is not in compliance with the App Store Review Guidelines.

Specifically, your app gives a free hint to users when they share the app on Facebook.

Please see the attached screenshot for more detail.

It would be appropriate to remove or revise this information.

If your iTunes Connect Application State is Rejected, a new binary will be required. Make the desired metadata changes when you upload the new binary.

So we can't encourage users to share stuffs on social networks anymore? This is one of the oldest tricks in the book and even Candy Crush uses it. Has anyone experienced this?
