In the month of September-2012, Facebook introduced “Gift” service in some selected region of USA. If you have a friend who lives in USA, you get notification of sending real birthday “Gift” to them when their birthday notification are being flashed as you login your facebook account. Indian facebook users can also use this service but they can send real gifts to their friend who lives in those selected region of USA and you have to pay in dollars only.
Facebook users just need to click the new “gifts” icon on the Facebook page to view the “presents” they would like to send to loved ones, select the one by option of payment of gift immediately or right before shipping. The gift will be delivered to your love one’s in real. The “Gift’ service will facilitate the user to cut down the time of selection of gift and its purchase from the open market
How this ‘Gift’ service will work.
The “gifts” icon is placed in the “Birthdays and Life Events” section on the right side of the user’s homepage. After choosing the specific gift, the user will get an option to attach a personalised message to it. Users also have the option to send the message as private or on the wall of the recipient and can choose to pay for the gifts immediately or right before shipping.
The recipient will get a notification message asking to give shipping address details. On receipt of the notification, the recipient can unwrap the gift to see what is inside and best part of this service is that if the gift is not of one’s liking, the recipient can swap the gift with another item of the same price range.
So now we can wish our real facebook friends who lives in USA with real birthday gifts but for Indian friends, we have to wait for some more time.
