Facebook Spams Your Feed - Better

Facebook Offers rollout has begun and now you'll have even more junk clogging up your news feed as they find yet another way to spam your wall, invade your privacy - all in the name of saving you money.  The Verge covers more of this opt-in coupon program that will no doubt be very popular.  It is yet another reason for me to migrate over to Google+.

The offers are free to create, though Facebook says that each will only reach a limited number of people. This is obviously a way for the social network to maintain interest in its regular ads, though it's an interesting strategy that could see more smaller businesses investing in wider advertising campaigns. Offers also marks another attempt by Facebook to enter the social shopping market that's currently dominated by the likes of Groupon and Livingsocial.
