Facebook Trialling Credits on Other Sites

Oct. 27, 2011

Facebook is urging developers to extend the reach its virtual currency, Facebook Credits, on Websites other than Facebook. The company said on its developer’s blog that by letting developers offer Credits on other Websites, they can “offer a more unified app experience to users beyond apps on Facebook”. It said in the blog post that gaming portal GameHouse is trialling the system for Collapse! Blast. Players will pay for the game using Facebook Credits instead of the normal options of cards and PayPal. Facebook said it is gathering early developer feedback on the plan.
