Facebook Unleashes “Buy with Friends” Prototype

Written on January 27, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Go buy some virtual good on Facebook with your buddies with their newest "Buy with Friends." Do you have your Facebook Credits ready?

As of the moment, Facebook is testing a new feature called “Buy with Friends”. For the feature to work, a user must make an in-app purchase using Facebook Credits, then shares it in his Newsfeed. A friend will see the post, and can buy the same item with discount directly from the feed. However, Facebook’s “Buy with Friends” only works for some in-game purchases of virtual goods.

Though currently restricted to virtual goods, this feature could be expanded to physical goods as well. With more and more retailers putting up a shop on Facebook, this new feature prototype can be the social network’s way to participate in group-buying offers.

Will Facebook’s “Buy with Friends” be another favorite feature? Share your insights by leaving a comment.
