Everybody likes a gift or two. Birthdays, anniversaries, whatever the occasion, gifts are good. Facebook Gifts will allow you to send real gifts to your friends. You can order gifts for people directly through the social network and suggestions will be tied into birthday reminders and life events like weddings.
This comes as a result of its decision to purchase Karma, a social “gifting” app, in May. Now, over a 100 retailers have signed up for the launch. Companies like Starbucks for example. Facebook will obviously will be taking a small cut of each sale, and it should mean lots of money for the company.
Friends can be notified before a gift is delivered and will be given a chance to tweak orders just in case your mom got some details wrong. Gifts is rolling out slowly in select cities and will expand in the coming weeks.
