Facebook Launches Gifts

Facebook has launched a new service called ‘Facebook Gifts’ – it’s attempt to take a piece of the ecommerce market which is dominated by the likes of eBay and Amazon.

Selected users in the US can select gifts from participating companies and send them to their friends, family or whoever has an event or birthday coming up.

The recipient of the gift can then choose the details of the gift such as colour, size etc and also select a delivery address.

If it’s a digital gift such as a gift card it will be present on their phone and if it’s a physical item it’ll be delivered to them.

This new service will be rolling out to the rest of the US fairly soon and will hopefully be international soon after that.
