Facebook suggests users give gifts to friends with good news


Some Facebook users are now seeing “give a gift” buttons on individual posts in their News Feed. The social network seems to recognize that users are sharing good news that friends might want to congratulate them for.

We’ve seen two examples of posts where users talked about getting a new job and another where a user announced, “It’s a boy!”

Previously, Facebook has suggested users give gifts to friends with upcoming birthdays or who recently announced their engagement, but those are structured life events that users share by setting their birthdate or changing their relationship status.
