Walmart Ironically Uses Twitter to Announce Its Black Friday Deals Will be on Facebook
Posted on November 1, 2011
Walmart has turned to Twitter to announce that it will first share its Black Friday deals on Facebook this year. It is a big deal for Facebook that Walmart will use its Facebook page to announce it deals. This will likely send lots of traffic to Facebook.
A lot of companies like announcing stuff on Facebook. Walmart could have easily just announced the deals on its own website and sent lots of traffic to its own website, but Facebook is very hot right now and has become a platform for announcements.
