Facebook credits are to go on sale in Tesco and Game in the UK. The stores will sell the virtual currency of Facebook in gift card form.
The gift card purchased from shops will even allow you to buy as a present, which can then be spent by the recipient on the social networking site.
The new Facebook Credits buys you features for the social networks online games and virtual gifts, i.e. a new cat in Happy Pets, or a new tractor in Farmville. Most games on Facebook have premium items which credits can be used to purchase.
Euan Ballantyne, Head of Cards at Tesco Bank, told the newspaper: "We now offer a range of gift cards and social gaming is becoming increasingly popular, so we are pleased to offer what might be an ideal Christmas present."
