Do you buy Facebook gifts for people?
I was wishing a few friends a Happy Birthday today and Facebook always wants me to buy a giftcard.
Have you ever done this?
No, and it's getting very annoying, those and then the "suggested post" adds that try to make it look like your friends purchased something. I don't want believe people actually click on these links. On the otherhand all the stupid people that actually invested in Facebook need to get their money back somehow.read more collapse
@ruger9mm: I agree 100%. I refuse to believe that as many of my friends as they claim have used gifts. I dont think any one of my FB friends care about the website that much.
It's a nice thought, I suppose, since people seem to like linking their FB account to everything on the internet ever, so if you were going to give a Starbucks gift card anyway, it would be easier to do it over FB. But I imagine this is a VERY small portion of Facebook.
Those suggested posts are just misleading. I really wish we could just disable advertising on Facebook altogether, even for a small fee. Their algorithms suck anyway. 99% of the ads they show me have no relevance to me.
I also wouldn't mind if they'd stop suggesting I like every single page friends post from. Just because I "like" that person's particular share doesn't mean I care where it came from.
I'll stop ranting now.read more collapse
With real money? Why would you, with so many free e-card sites? I thought you were talking about those Facebook game gifts. I don't "facebook", I got a Facebook account because a photo site I used offered a free monthly photobook but you had to import the photos from Facebook. Immediately upon creating my account, I was flooded with emails saying "(Your friend) has sent you a cow". A cow? What am I going to do with an electronic cow? I had a whole herd of virtual cattle languishing in my mailbox and I would imagine they are no more than imaginary cow skeletons by now. I figured that was the sort of gift you were talking about.read more collapse
