Retailers are using discounts through facebook to gain market share.  This is not a new story but the numbers here are pretty astonishing.  The subject of the story runs a tour business in “the City” and she used to feel good about ten people a day.  In the face of facebook and other offers she now gets as many as 90 a day.  9x results in advertising is better than just great.  It’s completely unheard of.
