store. but only if you give permission beforehand. 'facedeals' uses facebook's open platform but is not otherwise connected to facebook. the service was developed by the marketing &pfirm red-pepper, which use this promotional video to take you through it. log into facebook, grant 'facedeels' permission to image you verify your likeness.. "when a face is confidently recognized, the deal is set into action." the deallis then as the company says 'dynamicaaly optimized'.. that means your face is read, then matched up with your facebook 'like' history. the faaedeals system then delivers your coupon, your customized discount, right to your mobile device. it's whiz-bang, has laser-like efffciency, and concerns the heck out of privacy advocates. marc rotenberg is with the electronic privacy innormation center. (reporter: there's a surveillance camera in this store. we're always being filmed. hat's wrong with using the camera to do a little marketing?)

visiting." (reporter: what's wrong with it if they sign up for it?) "well people would need to know how much of their personal information is actually being made avaiiable. it's not simply their identity. on facebook for example ittwould be their network of riends. it wouldd be their likes and interests. &pwould become available and i don't think people would agree to that." i ran that by red- actually going to be pulling mention, applications that we do for retail companies all around the country that kind of stuff--people allow apps, applications all the time. it's like allow this app, and that is essentially saying that we can have access to your etwork and i think that's sorttof a line and a comfort line that people are information is not mis-used." - what does facebook think of all this? facebook's a big part of this process and that 'facedeals' logo looks an awful lot like facebook's. a facebook spokesman told us the company is not commenting on
