There's Just No Escape For Your News Feed -- Facebook Offers Rolls Out in the UK

By Sam Gibbs on at

Facebook started rolling out its Groupon-style Facebook Offers in last month, but now it's the UK’s turn to join the cheapo-daily-deals party, and your poor News Feed isn’t going to know what hit it.

It’s technically launching in beta in the UK, with businesses able to create deals right from their Facebook pages and promote them with adverts. If you’re interested in grabbing some cut-price deals for yourself, all you have to do is like a company’s page and they’ll show up in your News Feed.

Of course, if you hate the idea of having what are essentially ads shoved into your News Feed, then you should probably avoid liking any and all companies. Unfortunately, when your friends redeem a deal that’ll also get shoved into your feed, so unless you want to mute all your friends, you might find it filling-up pretty quickly with deals. Then again, I’m not sure that’s such a bad thing; everyone loves a good bargain or two, right?
