Facebook has introduced “Facebook Offers” and it is a new feature in the social network that allows brands to insert coupon deals into your news feed from pages you liked.
The social network giant trying to get wagon of offering deals like Groupon and Google Offers, is already started injecting coupons in your news feed for businesses you are most likely to buy from. If at any time you are in a page of a business and you leave a like, you will be granting them permission to send you offers; they can write a status update with a deal, which then will show up in your news feed.
Deals can be claimed at any time either by printing it or by simply showing your smartphone with the offer to the cashier.
Many people may feel that putting discount coupons is intrusive, but it will be interesting seeing what kind of discounts we are going to get — I am pro to saving money! Aren’t you?
How to remove Facebook Offers
Now you may be asking: How can I hide Facebook Offers from my news feed? Well, while the company said, that there is not a way to hide all the offers, you can hide a specific offer and all the post update from a particular page from your news feed. To do this just, hover over the top-right corner, click the drop-down menu and choose what to hide:
