What is LivingSocial?

LivingSocial is a website that links users with discounts in their local area. Every day, a subscriber receives an email with a discount code. If the subscriber chooses to purchase the offer (it can be anything from a massage, a manicure/pedicure to reduced pub fare) he/she will receive a link to the coupon the next business day. After buying the deal, subscribers then receive a link to share with friends detailing the same discount. If three friends purchase the same deal, the subscriber’s deal is free.

Concerns for Parents

How Can I Keep My Child Safe?
