Pop Culture – Goodbye Facebook Gifts

Facebook is closing shop – gift shop, that is. Those cute, loveable, sometimes funny, and always useless static image Facebook Gifts are going away starting August 1st – though gifts you’ve already received will remain forever young on your wall. There’s no exact reason why as of yet, other than “needing to focus product development elsewhere.” The speculation is that they’re putting more time and infrastructure to the Facebook Credits system. Either way, they probably killed it because it was one of the more unpopular features. So long, cupcake with candles, you will be missed.
