re: Facebook Floats Mobile Payment Service
Exactly my thouhts Thomas.I'm not against facebook or anysocial media networks but I dont find them trustworthy for mibile payment transaction. Cash is still the best. I might also choose bitcoin over Facebook, seriously. Or if not, just stick to PayPal; Google Wallet is very efficient and convenient as well.

And easier way to pay for online purchases will probably be appealing to many people, but I don't think Facebook is the right place. Its past privacy problems weigh too heavily on its users.

"Under the terms of the trial, Facebook users
who've supplied their credit card information to Facebook will be able
make purchases on JackThreads with but a few clicks"

I've seen WAY too many friends' Facebook accounts get hacked to make that even slightly appealing.

Every time I read about a new mobile payment solution, I find cash more appealing.
