The whole "Check in" fad is kind of crazy / weird to me.
Groupon's business model I understand: have enough people sign-up to a deal, and you get the deal.
But Places, I don't understand? Do you have to "check-in" to get the deal? How do you know where to check in, or is a surprise?
And don't people get tired of checking-in, if they don't get anything 99% of the time? Seems like an awful a lot of work for nothing.
I have only one friend that "check-in" to places with FourSquare, and I find that ridiculous (what do I care where he checked-in).
Maybe I don't get the business flow of FB Places.
