Facebook Offers never really took off in the US. In fact, it was killed off after just a few quiet months of testing.
Yet the social networking giant is resurrecting the service and bringing it to Canada. Offers, which is a daily deals service akin to Groupon, will let businesses send out deals to the newsfeeds of Facebook users who have "liked" them. Should that user accept the deal, they'll get an email voucher and redeem it.
Facebook Offers, much like in the US, will rollout slowly. Mark Zuckerberg's company says that Offers will initially be available "in beta to a limit number of local businesses." It will expand "soon"—assuming it does better than the US, of course.
What's interesting about Facebook's model is that it doesn't charge businesses to inject deals into users' newsfeeds. But it does push ads to correspond with the deal campaign.
