Looking to Compete With Groupon, LivingSocial
Within a week of each other, Google and Facebook have both announced that they will be entering the Groupon-esque daily deals race.
Google Offers, still in its trial period, is starting with a roll-out in Portland, OR before it expands to NYC and SF.
Facebook Deals launched on the heels of Google’s Announcement starting with a broader base in San Francisco, Austin, Dallas, San Diego, and Atlanta and with a specific emphasis on deals that encourage people to be more social with group activities.
With other daily deal sites already in full swing, especially with the big fish in the sea like Groupon and LivingSocial in hot pursuit, do you think that Facebook and Google have what it takes to shake things up?
