The service will be tested in Dallas, Austin, Atlanta, San Francisco, and San Diego, and will expand on the social-networking giant's Deals program, which offers users deals to members when they use Facebook Places to check in at local business, the company said. Members will be able to buy deals and share them with their friends on the network.
"Local businesses will be able to sign up to use this feature soon and people will be able to find deals in the coming weeks," the Palo Alto, Calif.-based company said in statement today.
Facebook plans to sell the deals through its own sales team, as well as working with partners such as Gilt City, Home Run, Pop Sugar City, Tippr, KGB Deals, Plum District, Reach Local, Zozi, and Open Table.
With 500 million members, Facebook will bring a sizable user base in its challenge for dominance in the deals market, which brought in $873 million in revenue last year and could bring in $3.93 billion by 2015, according to a projection from consulting firm BIA/Kelsey.
Chief among those competitors is Groupon, which has been riding meteoric growth with half-price massages, discounted restaurant meals, and travel bargains. Chicago-based Groupon, with 60 million users and more than 39 million deals sold in its two years in business, is expected to beef up its muscle with an initial public offering later this year.
In addition to Groupon, Facebook will have to contend with a host of "Groupon clones," including deals site LivingSocial, which announced a $175 million investment from e-commerce giant Amazon.com late last year.
Facebook will also face competition from Google, which over the past couple of years has been losing employee talent to the social-networking giant. Just a month after being rebuffed in a buyout offer of Groupon, Google confirmed in January that it's preparing to launch its own social-buying competitor called Google Offers.

But it's not just the developers, it's the tools they're building their games on top of. One of those is Unity, the 3D game engine that powers a number of iOS games, as well as games on Android and consoles.
As we've seen with the move from the first batch of iOS hardware to the next, there are the occasional titles that really shine on the newer devices and will only run on them. However, the vast majority of games continue to aim as broad as possible in terms of hardware requirements.
Facebook representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Apple's "Retina Display" technology first appeared on the iPhone 4 and later made it into the latest version of the iPod Touch. Marketing speak aside, it's a high-density pixel display that packs in about four times the number of pixels as standard displays. How this trickles down to apps is text with smoother edges and the capability for developers to add more detail.
The iPad has largely been positioned by Apple as a companion device to traditional computers. But that doesn't mean people aren't using it for things they'd normally do on a computer, such as plugging in their camera to store, edit, and share photos they've taken on their digital camera. Apple's solution up until this point has been to sell a camera adapter accessory that uses the iPad's 30-pin plug to interface with either an SD memory card, or any USB camera.
Thunderbolt is Intel's super fast port that debuted just last week. So far, it's only available on Apple's MacBook Pro line, which got a refresh the same day Thunderbolt was formally announced.
Near Field Communications technology, or NFC, enables devices to exchange information with one another over short distances. Think of something like the Bump app, which uses an intermediary service to exchange information between two devices that are tapped together. Well, NFC goes the next step, and actually sends the data between the two with no middleman.
And to cap off the list of things that could have made it into the iPad 2 is 4G, the successor to the 3G cellular data networks that promises to bring significantly faster wireless data speeds.
