A Man & His Murse

With Facebook’s recent announcement that Facebook Places will now be able to effectively serve coupons and discounts based on your geo-location.  I thought it would be fun if all of us posted some potentially embarrassing posts around our purchases.  Above are 10 to start, but please add your own in the comments field or tweet them to @equalman.

In other words, we are going to often be placed in the predicament of deciding if a coupon/discount is worth said coupon being posted for the world to see on Facebook.  Right now, your actions via Facebook Places will automatically post to your Facebook wall.

My guess is that at some point soon Facebook will make your coupon receipt/purchase optional on whether you post it to your wall or not.  Otherwise kfc-doubledownplaces like Victoria’s Secret, Chippendales and Fredrick’s of Hollywood may be left out in the cold. If you aren’t familiar with the KFC Double Down an image is on the right showcasing all its glory: 2 pieces of friend chicken sandwiching 2 pieces of cheese and 2 pieces of bacon.
