Facebook unveils P2P moola-to-mates payment feature
Holy f*ck! Do you trust Zuck with your bucks?
Facebook chumps can now send money to other Facebook chumps via the free content ad network's Messenger app.
The company confirmed on Monday that the new peer-to-peer feature would be deployed initially in the US over the next few months.
Facebook's money-transfer service offers to retain a user's Visa or MasterCard debit card information, which the Mark Zuckerberg-run firm promises to store securely on its vast database. It said:
These payment systems are kept in a secured environment that is separate from other parts of the Facebook network and that receive additional monitoring and control. A team of anti-fraud specialists monitor for suspicious purchase activity to help keep accounts safe.
Zucking up YOUR cash
The moola-to-mates feature will be available on desktop, Android and iOS devices. ®
