You will soon be able to gift a soft cuddly toy or a Starbucks gift card to any friend or loved one on Facebook. The social network is expanding into commerce by offering users a large range of physical gifts and presents friends can send one another.
With millions of birthday messages sent every day on Facebook, the U.S company hopes that users will begin to send gifts through the site for all occasions.
Facebook has made a huge effort to ensure gifs can be easily bought and sent through its website or mobile applications for iPhone and Android.
A user simply chooses the item they wish to send from a catalog of gifts provided by over a 100 retailers. Once the gift is paid for a message is instantly posted on the recipients Facebook wall. The recipient can then claim their gift by entering their delivery address, they will also have the option to change the size or style of the gift before it is shipped.
There is no date on when we can expect to see Facebook gifts rolling out in the U.K, but expect to see gift messages on your news feed in the very near future.
