Deals come to Facebook
With the popularity of Groupon, Living Social and other local deal sites, it was inevitable - deals come to Facebook. Previously Facebook offerred deals when you checked in to a location, but now they are offering deals based on your local area. Facebook is piloting their new deals in Atlanta, Austin, Dallas, San Diego and San Franciso.
The Facebook deals differ from those offered by Groupon or Living Social (and can be more attractive to business owners) because the discounts aren't as steep. Deals are also purchased with Facebook credits.
