Facebook credits as gifts

03 Sep 2010 | Added Value

Earlier this week Facebook announced that Facebook credit gift cards would be available at stores. Here is a link to the announcement on popular tech blog Read Write Web. Yes, you will be able to use real money to buy virtual money at a Target store near you. Obviously, this means that parents and friends can buy Facebook gift cards for their loved ones to splurge on virtual goods on Facebook. I am assuming that many people will give Facebook gift cards during the upcoming holiday season. If you would like your friends to water your virtual crops on Farmville or own a digital farm next to your farm, but if they don’t seem too willing to do it, all you have to do now is buy a Facebook credit gift card, and they will be obliged to help. As for my friends, I would like to state in clear words, “I’ll not water your crops even if you buy me a gift card.”

With barter systems, social networking, and plain old-fashioned community back on the rise (look for Leigh Marriner’s excellent upcoming post on community), the ways in which people shake and blend are less distinct. I say, throw everything in. Put it in the kettle. See what mixes up.
