Facebook is rolling out a new Facebook Offers feature, which will allow businesses to create coupons and publish them to a news feed. The offers can be distributed through your customer news feed or even promoted as a Sponsored Story.
It’s not surprising that Facebook is releasing a feature like this, especially since they’re moving towards additional ways to monetize. They tried launching Facebook Deals, but that didn’t catch on. So instead they launched FB coupons still targeted towards businesses but with a different approach. I think it’s a good idea, however I feel that Facebook is starting to get flooded with Apps, Memes (stupid pictures, quotes), Ads, and now Coupons from businesses! It’s turning into a big advertisement. I think I could write a whole post about how Facebook is actually on a downfall, but I’ll get to that later.
What do you think, are Facebook Coupons a good thing?
