Find Deals on Facebook

There were 23 million Americans, about 10% of the U.S. adult population, who found deals online last year. Groupons has 70 million members; Facebook has 500 million users. Now, Facebook wants part of the business by introducing “Deals” in selected cities. Facebook users can purchase a deal on Facebook. Then, the transaction will be updated within the user’s Facebook network.

Business wants Facebook users to “Like” the deals and promotions, more or less because of the power of “Like” on Facebook (for sure, there is a price tag associated with Facebook’s “Like” button). After watching this ABC News video, would you promote your business on Facebook Deals? In the future, do you think Facebook will take over other online discount coupon providers like Livingsocial and Groupons?

  1. Groupon (a portmanteau derived from "group coupon") is a deal-of-the-day website that is localized to major geographic markets worldwide.Groupon also owns several international operations, all of which were originally deal-of-the-day services similar to it, but then re-branded under the Groupon name after acquisition。 Groupon is a kind of popular website in America, cause there are 23million Americans, about 10% of the U.S adult population, and the basically get something just online. To be frank, i will promote my business on Facebook Deals after i have watched this ABC news video, because i can see some oppotunities in this kind of program, i mean the profits of advertisement. Actually, i do not think Facebook will take over other online discount coupon providers like livingsocial and Groupons. the reason why i disagree the former idea is i think the facebook is not mature than other commercial company currently, it should get more chance to inspire some other program as if a kinda system of management !

  2. I think that Facebook is a very useful internet site for promoting and advertising. With such an enormous amount of people using Facebook, it is so easy for people to see certain ads and or coupons. When you see your friends or family "like" something, you are already interested to see what it was that they "liked". Not only is Facebook an easy way for advertising, the word spreads quickly which is great for businesses who have chosen to advertise on Facebook.

Embodying the finest luxury experience, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, LLC has been established since 1983. In 1998, Marriott International purchased the brand offering it more opportunity for growth while being independently owned and operated. They are known for their enhanced service level as the motto states, “Ladies and Gentlemen serving Ladies and Gentlemen”.

How to choose the best credit cards for travel (By David Mai)

  Traveling in a Post-Pandemic World If there was one thing the pandemic taught us, it was that everybody became hesitant and unwilling to travel. Shaver (2020) of The Washington Post shared an interesting tidbit in which Americans were actually staying home less during the pandemic, according to research that tracks users' smartphone data.  The quarantine fatigue affected nearly everyone who lived an active lifestyle or loved to be out and about in the world. It was simply not a safe time, and too many regulations were in place that deterred consumers from traveling for leisure. Consequently, the COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted the travel and hospitality industry. Yet, there is no doubt that people will yearn to travel again when the pandemic is fully lifted. Around this same time, credit card companies have developed unique ways to retain business with consumers who look to maximize rewards and benefits for their journey.

Yammer: A Social Networking Site Exclusively for the Workplace

Effective internal communications among employees are related to some desirable organizational outcomes, such as robust morale, a clear vision, low turnover, and high employee engagement. The question is what platform can serve the purpose. This ABC News video introduces “ Yammer ,” an exclusive internal communication tool for companies. A user must use a valid company e-mail address to sign up for an account. Once an account is validated, the user will be led to the company page that is pretty much like a Facebook page. The difference is that only the users whose e-mail addresses share the same domain can see the wall and communicate with each other. I have no question about whether Yammer could be a useful internal communication tool for companies, but I just wonder: how many social networking sites do people need for communication? Why people have to “create” so many platforms or channels for “effective communications”? To many people, Facebook is only for “friends,” whe
