Today the social media company has launched Facebook Gifts, a service that lets you send real gifts to your friends on Facebook.
Facebook teamed up with Starbucks, 1-800-Flowers, Gund, and Magnolia Bakery to make it easy to buy and send gifts through the site.
Choose a gift, attach a card and send. You can post your gift to your friend’s timeline or send it privately. Your friend can then unwrap a preview of the gift and it will show up on their doorstep a few days later. You can pay right away or add your payment details later. Your friend provides their address. To make sure they love the gift, they can choose the color, size or flavor that they want, or even exchange it for something else of equal value.
Facebook Gifts will roll out in the US first and elsewhere later.
