Posted on January 01, 2014

Finally, Facebook have launched Facebook Check In Deals for Australian users. We've all heard the stories of how good they are from our mates in the USA, now its our turn to get some back. Initially launches with a few test partners, Facebook Check In Deals promises to open a new opportunity for brands to engage and reward their fans, for real.

We are excited to announce that Check In Deals is available in Australia starting today. Local businesses in Australia will be able to offer you deals when you check in to their place on Facebook.
