Facebook Gives 15-25 Free Game Credits



By Bryan Sanders posted Jul 16th, 2010 at 5:05PM

[Update]

Facebook free credits come in various amounts depending on the user. I have seen 15, 20, and 25 credits given for free. Each credit is valued at 0.10 cents USD.

Check your Facebook account to see how many credits you received. I play a lot of applications and I received 20 free credits. I cannot tell you if the credits are random or depend on how frequently you play game apps on Facebook.

Free Credits for Facebook Apps

Open a game application in Facebook today and you might notice a pop-up that says “Facebook Gave You (various amount) Free Credits”. Gamers can use these free credits to buy premium items in your favorite games.

My 20 free credits are valued at $2.00 USD. Is this a marketing strategy to keep users happy and keep them away from the upcoming Google Games? I’m not sure but whatever it is, thank you Facebook. Enjoy gamers!

Say Goodbye to Facebook ‘Gifts’

Facebook Gifts

As you may have heard, Facebook will be deleting their ‘gifts’ feature on August 1st, 2010. You will no longer be able to send or receive gifts from family or friends.

On July 8th, Facebook announced in a blog that they were closing their gift shop and they are “focusing instead on other products”. Facebook is basically cleaning up the clutter and making improvements on the more popular features.

The gifts you’ve already received on your Wall will remain visible, and you still will be able to view your sent and received gifts on your gifts page. People also can continue to use the many third-party applications on Facebook for giving and receiving gifts, such as Birthday Cards, Hallmark Social Calendar, Pieces of Flair and someecards.


Facebook’s New Facial Tag Feature



Facebook is testing a new feature that will help you tag faces in photos. The new feature will prompt you to enter a tag by asking “whose face is this?” when a faces are discovered in a photo you have just uploaded. This will save you some time so you don’t have to click on faces to tag them.
