Facebook Closing Their Virtual Giftshop August 1st

on July 9, 2010 | Facebook | Comments (0)

Facebook has decided to close their virtual Giftshop on August 1.

The gift shop allowed users to buy Facebook credits which in turn could be Virtual Gifts which were sent to other users.

This was one of the first user charging products on Facebook.

Whilst the Giftshop will close on August 1, any remaining gifts on your wall will stay, and users are still able to purchase gifts up till Aug1.

The feature was originally launched in 2007.

Facebook is looking to trim down any products which do not fit into their future plans.
