Is Groupon Bad For Small Businesses? Editor’s note: The following post is a response to our guest series taking a critical look at the daily deals industry. It is written by Vinicius Vacanti, CEO of Yipit, a daily deal aggregator that collects deals from more than 300 daily deal sites.

It’s changing how we consume, socialize, mobilize— ultimately, how we live and function together as a society.

Hacker News | Tell HN: Our experience with Groupon For three years I managed a skydiving facility. In March of 2010 we chose to run a Groupon promotion.
