YoVille previews new Group Buying feature
To participate in the game, there will be a "YoVille Group Buying" banner inside the game in which you can click on. From there, you can click on "Count me In" to indicate that you are interested in participating in the group buying deal. After you opt in, you'll be given the option to share the deal with your friends on your wall and sent a confirmation email. If enough people click and participate in the Group Buying deal, it will become activated for everyone who opted in. You will then get an email telling you that you have 24 hours to buy the items. You'll be able to buy as many or as few of these items as you want.
The best way to think of this is a Groupon deal right within YoVille. The secret to this is making sure that you encourage people to participate so that the deal is unlocked. Once you opt in, there is no obligation. This sounds like a fun way to get expensive items at an exclusive discount. For the full details, check out the YoVille Official Blog.
