'Facebook Deals' now available here
FACEBOOK has launched its 'Facebook Deals' service in Ireland. The service, which has been seen as a rival to the likes of FourSquare and voucher company GroupOn, allows customers to find offers from retailers and other companies depending on the person's location.
Facebook's director of mid-market sales for Europe, Middle East and Africa, Rick Kelley, said: "Deals is a great extension of the Facebook social philosophy."
