The worlds largest social networking site is moving on to their next big product launch. Facebook is launching, “Buy With Friends,” which allows users to get discounts on virtual goods purchased by their friends.
Right now the feature is restricted to select virtual goods only, however we can be sure that Facebook would come up with its own “Group Buy” soon.
This is how “Buy With Friends” works – When a user makes an in-app purchase using Facebook Credits, and shares it in his or her newsfeed. A friend sees the purchase and can then buy the same item at a discount directly in the newsfeed.
