ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the increasing popularity of selling virtual gifts on Facebook, an social networking site. He states that while the gifts might be virtual, the sales are not. He adds that since the introduction of the concept in February 2007, Facebook has taken in something in excess of $24 million in real money. He claims that the site is a complete conundrum, priceless crap.
