今年，社交网站Facebook发布了虚拟货币Facebook Credits以用于平台应用和游戏进行微交易。而最近，英国公司Game和Tesco公司将加入美国沃尔玛，百思买和Target等零售商之列在英国销售Facebook Credits预付卡。
现在，Facebook网站排名前25的游戏中有22款可以使用Facebook Credits。Facebook Credits的营销总监Deborah Liu表示目前这款虚拟货币虽然只能适用于Facebook.com，但随着第三方应用程序接口Facebook Connect应用到更多的网站中，Facebook Credits的使用范围也会扩大。（本文为游戏邦/gamerboom.com编译，转载请注明来源：游戏邦）
UK retailers Game and Tesco will be among the first to carry prepaid cards with Facebook Credits on them.
The popular social networking site uses a system known as Facebook Credits that allows users to make microtransactions in social games and apps. The two companies have agreed to stock the cards in the UK and Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Target will carry them in the US.
Tesco has 2,482 locations all of which will offer the new Facebook Credit cards, while Game will carry the prepaid cards at its 683 stores. Facebook said that it will work with several retailers to provide the cards to its more than 250 million users.
Currently, the payment system is accepted by 22 of 25 apps on the social networking site. Facebook Credits’ product marketing director, Deborah Liu, said the virtual currency currently is just for Facebook.com, but that the company would like to extend the system to Facebook Connect, an API that allows third-party apps to use Facebook.
Ms Liu also added Facebook would like to expand the credit system to its third-party partners to allow users to purchase apps and game items for conveniently. Furthermore, Facebook also said it sees the virtual currency as having international opportunity as far as a payment method online. （Source：mns）
