Give me a deal, Facebook?
OK – you all must have heard of Groupon and know about the general concept. Well, Facebook are starting what amounts to the very same thing. Facebook is finally launching local Deals — a feature that will compete with Groupon‘s core product in five cities starting this month. The five communities in question are San Francisco, Austin, Dallas, Atlanta and San Diego. Facebook revealed to The New York Times that the local offers made to Deals users will be delivered via email and will also appear in users’ news feeds. Any Facebook user can sign up for Deals notifications on the feature’s landing page.
