While Facebook has recently rolled/rolling out offers feature, we at SocialNetGate had already made use of Facebook to publish offers. Facebook Offers is added as an application to our clients' Facebook pages, where people need to like the page and view the offers. This way it makes the offers exclusive only to people who like your Facebook page. Soon, we will be busy finding an option to post to Facebook offers from our platform.
