Deal sites are so hot right now. So hot, in fact, that even the world's most-used site can't resist their allure. Facebook recently announced its plans to expand its current Facebook Deals offerings to include local offers starting in San Francisco, San Diego, Dallas, Atlanta, and Austin.
Buy With Friends will work in conjunction with Facebook Places, allowing users to unlock deals at certain locations and then share them with friends. Apparently, Facebook's research has shown that users are more likely to purchase a deal if their friends do, which makes complete sense and clearly fits perfectly with Facebook's core functionality.
Users in the program's launch cities can expect to find deals in the coming weeks.
