Think of why you check your Facebook right now?  Is it to see what people are talking about?  Is it to see if it’s your move on Scrabble?  Well, now you have a really good reason to check in.  Facebook just added a new service that will allow you to check for deals on products and services in your area.

Think about it. . . You’re walking along, realizing you need to purchase something.  All you will have to do to find out who is offering special deals in your area now, is to get your iphone or other internet-accessible phone out and check Facebook.

Who is offering the discounts?  According to WJS.com, “GAP, Inc. will be one of the first marquee partners, offering free blue jeans to the first 10,000 customers who check in to their stores on an unannounced date in the near future. Facebook said Starbucks, McDonald’s, Macy’s and Harrah’s will also be offering deals.”
