Facebook Gifts closing on August 12th after nearly three years of service
Facebook is closing its Gifts service on August 12th. Initially launched in September 2012 after the social network acquired Karma, Recode writes that the Gifts team will continue to work on various "commerce-related projects." Though Facebook has not given an explanation for its shuttering of Gifts, it is likely that there was not enough interest in the service, which allowed Facebook users to buy each other digital gift cards.
