Real chocolate on Facebook

One of the fun things about Facebook has always been its little “gifts” application, which lets you spend real money on things that don’t exist. Awww. However, thanks to Mars, there’s now a way of buying real chocolate treats online and sending them to your friends.

The Celebrate application claims to be simple. First, you add it to your Facebook account. Then, you buy a choccy treat for a friend using your PayPal account. Next, your friend receives a message in Facebook asking for their mobile phone number. Still with us? They then get sent a mobile voucher ID by text message, which they can exchange for chocolate at apparently “more than 12,500 PayPoint stores” across the UK.

It’s a nice idea. Good luck at the newsagent’s.
