Wie der Telegraph berichtet sollen die bereits aus den USA bekannten Facebook Deals heute in Europa starten. Laut dem Bericht wird der neue Dienst heute morgen noch auf einem großen Event in London angekündigt werden:
Launched in the US last November, Facebook is expected to announce this morning the roll out of ‘Places Deals’ in the UK and Europe, a new service which rewards users for visits to different locations by logging their whereabouts on the site via their mobile phones.
According to source close to Facebook: “Places Deals is launching today in Europe. There are lots of retail and food partners on board, and the service is set to be really popular as increasing amount of people use the site via their mobile.”
… Last year Facebook launched its Places service, which allows users to share their location with their friends by ‘checking in’ to bars, restaurants and shops and to see which friends are near them, via the social network’s mobile phone application.
However, until now, UK users have not been able to use the service to find out which good deals or offers are available near them. Now with the ‘Deals’ service, Facebook users will be able see what offers are nearest to them at any time and share those deals with their friends.
Facebook is hosting a large event in London today, at which it is expected announce the launch of the ‘deals’ service across Europe. (Quelle)
