Facebook Launches Deals On Facebook
Facebook launched a service a few months ago called Check-In Deals. Check-In Deals allowed consumers to get special offers when they checked in at local business from their mobile phones. Today, Facebook is bringing social to a whole new level by bringing Deals on Facebook. Since the service is brand new, deals will originally be available only to people in Atlanta, Austin, Dallas, San Diego, and San Francisco with hopes to expand to other major cities in the future.
Although Deals on Facebook offers discounts, Facebook thought it was important for you to be able to share, buy, and plan deals with your friends. Facebook users can find deals through a number of ways. One way is through e-mail notifications about new deals in your area. Another way is to check the Deals tab on your home page.
Finally, you can see what kind of deals your friends purchased or liked, if their notifications allow for it. Facebook is currently working with: aDealio, Gilt City, HomeRun, kgb deals, OpenTable, Plum District, PopSugar City, ReachLocal, Tippr, viagogo, and zozi. This should be a large enough list to kick off the new feature and allow you to enjoy new deals with your friends and share them with others! Give it a shot and let us know what you think!
