Social media blog Mashable got the "exclusive" story on PayPal's new Facebook App for Sending Money to Friends this morning but Techvibes has an angle that Canadian tech fans may find interesting.
Social payments are taking a giant leap forward. PayPal has unveiled a Facebook app that lets you send money to friends.
The app, simply titled Send Money, is just as straightforward as its name. You have the choice to send either an ecard with money or just money with no card. You select a card, choose a friend to send it to and then select how much money to send.
If you log-in to your Facebook account and navigate to the Send Money app you'll find "PayPal Send Money operated by ConnectionPoint" in small type in the footer of the page. Vancouver's ConnectionPoint Systems is responsible for the popular FundRazr app which allows anyone to fundraise on Facebook.
Last month when Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg was randomly spotted in Vancouver, Techvibes named five reasons why he might be in town. One of them was to acquire FundRazr.
While that rumour hasn't come true yet, if it does we now know how they're going to send ConnectionPoint CEO Daryl Hatton the money.
