Facebook launches its discount deals

Facebook never ceases to surprise us. Here's the latest... imagine walking into a restaurant and being served your favourite food even before you placed an order. And at a discounted price at that!.

Well, it could soon be a reality, if Facebook's new technology roll-out goes to plan.

The social networking site seeks to instal cameras in public venues that will cross-reference your face to that of your FB profile in order to offer custom-targeted advertising where ever you go, reported perthnow.com

Users will have to first sign up on 'Facedeals' by uploading FB photos. Later, when you enter a shop - which has a tie-up with Facebook - you will immediately receive SMS offering you special discounts on things you like the best.

How the Facebook check-ins will be practically feasible is yet to be ascertained.
