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.

Do you know where your prospects hang out during the #DeleteFacebook movement?

Facebook used to the cool place where everybody hangs out. Not long ago, Facebook was ranked the most visited website in the world , and the website where Americans spent the most time. Facebook page then became the most popular social media platform for business-to-consumer communications among various types of organizations. In recent years, however, Facebook faced several backlashes toward the platform’s data privacy practices and its CEO. Facebook is experiencing some challenges of maintaining its popularity among internet users, some of whom even call for a #DeleteFacebook movement . I myself, also notice a shift in my teenaged students’ interest in Facebook, even before the #DeleteFacebook backlash. So, if Facebook is no longer the cool place where everybody hangs out, which social media platforms can we use to communicate with our prospective consumers? The most popular social media platforms among U.S. teens According to a 2018 Pew Research Center report

Are neighbors friends or foes? A study of Airbnb listings' agglomeration effect

“Location, location, location.” Location is often perceived as the most important factor when people assess the value of a home or property. In the lodging industry, location is an essential attribute of a property and can significantly affect a hotel’s financial performance. Airbnb and the broader home-sharing businesses represent a new form of lodging products. Location is also a significant, influential factor that affects travelers’ purchasing decisions of a home-sharing stay.   Recent research suggests that Airbnb listings are usually found in such popular locations as tourist attractions and points of interest. When more Airbnb listings are located in the same neighborhood, the competition will become more intense.   Intense competition can be harmful to businesses, especially when they enter a price war. If that’s the case, why would Airbnb hosts choose to operate their short-term residential rental businesses in the neighborhood with oth
