Facebook adds Apple iTunes credits in gift service


SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Facebook said on Monday it was adding Apple iTunes digital credits to its new gift service at the social network.

"Starting today with Facebook Gifts, you can instantly gift your friends iTunes digital gifts and recommend albums, movies, games, apps, and more available on the iTunes Store," a Facebook statement said.

The iTunes "digital gifts" will be available in amounts of US$10 (S$12.30), US$15, US$25, or US$50. For now, it is available only for United States (US) users of Facebook.

Facebook in September added the feature that lets people send cupcakes, coffee, stuffed animals or other gifts to friends at the social network.
