Facebook Offers is a new way that Facebook is connecting consumers with the businesses that use their site to promote their services and products. Now, when a business has an offer for a product or service that involves a special discount, users can redeem the offer in one click. Example offers:
- “Buy 1 yogurt and get a second for free.”
- “Spend $50 and get $10 off your purchase.”
- “This Friday only: get 25% off regular priced items.”
By clicking the “Get Offer” link, users will be given the option to have the offer sent to them via email. The user can then print the offer (like a coupon) and bring it into the business, or show it directly from their mobile phone.
When a user claims an offer, a story about it is added to their profile (Timeline), thus their Facebook friends will be notified.
