Chicago-based Groupon will now face competition from Facebook and Google.

Groupon is facing a run for its money in the form of two major rivals. On Tuesday, Facebook launched a daily deals service and Google also recently jumped into the group-buying game. Facebook has more than 600 million potential coupon clippers: Will the company pose the ultimate challenge to Groupon?
