Facebook New Places App: Deals

Have a question? Agree, disagree,
with me? Leave me your opinion.

The social media giant made the
mobile "check-in" application
available to major merchants and
thousands of small/mid-size
businesses in the United States.

Facebook Deals purpose is to connect
users of Facebook Places to deals/specials
from: 24 Hour Fitness, Gap and Palms Casino
Resort- to name a few. Deals are only
available through Facebook's iPhone app
or Android users can
now check into Places but not Deals.

The service is an extension of Places,
which lets smart-phone owners with
Facebook accounts share their exact
location and find where friends are.
Now, people will be notified of
discounts/deals at selected merchants
near them.

When a user logs into Facebook, he/she
can look for a list of "nearby places,"
some may or may not have a yellow price
tag or sticky to the right of them- that's
a deal. Open it by clicking. There are four
kinds of deals: individual deals, loyalty
deals, friend deals and charity deals.
There's even a UI that shows "punches"
on a virtual card for loyalty deals, Facebook
states, with discounts for those users who
bring new friends and customers.

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
