Facebook Launches Deals Page on Site

Want to access nearby Facebook Deals using your web browser? Now you can, thanks to Facebook’s new “Find Deals on Facebook” page.

The page, which was launched last week, enables users to find local deals on a map, just as they would using Facebook’s official iPhone or Android apps, or by accessing touch.facebook.com on their mobile phones. Users can also browse deals in other neighborhoods via search.

The page does not appear to be well-integrated into the rest of Facebook.com, although we expect it will be soon. Integration on the Home tab would no doubt drive greater awareness among those who primarily access Facebook from their desktops.

Emily White, Facebook’s director of local, told the Wall Street Journal that since Facebook Deals launched in the U.S. in November 2010, “millions” of people have used the service, and more than 50% of merchants have elected to renew their offers. Facebook Deals went live in five European countries on Monday.
