Facebook is aiming to upset the $10-billion market for online coupons by offering a free service that allows retailers to broadcast special offers to all Facebook users in the immediate area.

As of Monday, Canadians can get deals by advertising the stores they visit on the massively popular social networking site.

Facebook Deals works in conjunction with Facebook Places, which allows users to “check in” to locations using their smartphones to see if anyone else they know is also in the area.

Facebook Deals, which made its debut in the U.S. in November, allows businesses to offer discounts if Facebook users check in at their stores. For example, checking in at a Chapters via Facebook Deals would give the user 40 per cent off a regular-priced book.

Facebook says no personal information is shared with businesses. Demographic information, like age and sex, is given to businesses, however, if the sample size of buyers is large enough to not identify users.
