This application helps Facebook users interact in a real way without ever leaving Facebook
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 22, 2008
RealGifts™, a gifting application built on Facebook® Platform, will be publicly unveiled at Facebook's "f8" developers conference this Wednesday, July 23, 2008. Demonstrations and gift giveaways from the RealGifts collection will be available at The Concourse at the San Francisco Design Center, Booth #8, from noon to 8 p.m.
RealGifts is the first service of its kind to give users the opportunity to exchange real, tangible gifts with their friends through a secure checkout that is integrated directly into the RealGifts application. A key feature is that users can quickly and conveniently send each other gifts without knowing their friends' mailing addresses, so no exchange of sensitive information is necessary.
RealGifts takes Facebook's popular virtual gifting application to a whole new level by making gifts real. A wrapped gift box icon appears on the recipient's profile, which later opens to reveal an image of the real gift and personal message once the real gift has been physically delivered in the mail.
Users can purchase dozens of competitively priced and unique items from leading retailers such as gourmet treats, bath and beauty products, and novelty items. More gifts are regularly being added, including an upcoming eco- and socially-conscious gifts section. More than just an application, RealGifts is an interactive socializing tool that bridges the gap between virtual gift giving and the real world.
"This application helps Facebook users interact in a real way without ever leaving Facebook," said Tommy Sanguinetti, Co-Founder of RealGifts. "It brings virtual socializing and gifting to a whole new level, while staying within the familiar and convenient framework of Facebook."
For a limited time, RealGifts is showing its appreciation for its users by offering existing users the chance to send complimentary gifts to new users. Visit RealGifts at http://apps.facebook.com/realgifts for more information.
