Facebook Japan Starts “Facebook Deals” [Social Networks]


Facebook Japan has launched Facebook Deals, an e-coupon service that was introduced in the US in November 2010. In the official announcement, Facebook Japan says lists up 14 partner companies, including big names such as Domino’s, Lawson, Adidas Japan, GAP, and others.

Japanese users accessing Facebook in Japan on their smartphones can check into brick-and-mortar stores of these brands to get coupons and other information.

This service, dubbed Facebook Check-In Coupon, is unique in Japan, but my guess is that Mixi will be launching something similar soon.

Pictures of the service launch event in Tokyo are available over on Asiajin and CScout Japan.
