How To Navigate Black Friday Deals From Facebook

Tuesday, 20 November 2012

While the idea of Black Friday has been around for awhile, it’s gotten a lot more high-tech in recent years, even spawning a new “holiday,” Cyber Monday. As a diehard Black Friday-er (my mom and I are up at 5am every year, no matter what), I love the excitement and festive atmosphere at the malls the day after Thanksgiving. We go for the experience more than the deals. But over the years, social media has made some subtle changes to the way shoppers approach Black Friday sales. Coupons are still clipped, but they’re also scanned from a smartphone.

Facebook plays a big part in the shift toward a more digital shopping experience. From price comparisons to store hours and maps, Facebook’s got it all, complete with handy sharing features, all in the palm of your hand. So how do you put all this information to use? Here’s my rundown of the top Facebook pages to “like” for Black Friday:
