Who will take over the world first? Facebook or Walmart?

27 Oct

Don’t people work anymore? Just when you thought you were sick enough of Farmville and Mafia Wars,  it looks like you’ll be seeing a lot more of the social gaming phenomenon come holiday time because credits will now be sold in Walmart.

Already available at Target stores, the social networking site is set to offer the credits -– which can be used for in-game purchases in games like FarmVille –- at Walmart and Best Buy too. Walmart will offer $5, $10 and $25 versions of the gift cards, while Best Buy will sell them in denominations of $10, $25 and $50.

A Facebook spokesperson tells Mashable that, “As we approach the holiday gift-giving season, we’re happy to expand the availability of Facebook Credits gift cards to Walmart and Best Buy. More than 200 games and applications accept Facebook Credits, giving people a fun, convenient and secure way to buy premium items, and making Credits gift cards a unique gift for the holidays.”

Print your Facebook Photos at Target

21 Oct

I don’t know about you, but I sadly haven’t printed a photo in AGES, although, I always mean to/want to. I just never get around to it and viewing them online (for the whole world to see) seems to do the trick as stand-in. But now Target has announced that their Kodak photo kiosks will allow you to simply log-in to your Facebook and print the photos in stores.

Now to all of those who have concerns about privacy issues, the software developed for the kiosks is very sensitive to privacy and has limited access to your Facebook information. That being said, this is Facebook we’re talking about, the ultimate in “sure we believe in privacy……………. not”

What do you think? Will you use this service? I’ll probably be giving it a whirl in the very near future.
