Facebook Prompts Users To Buy Mom A Facebook Gift

Mother’s Day is this Sunday. If you haven’t bought something for your mom, Facebook wants to solve that problem. Facebook is prompting some users to buy a Facebook Gift for their mother. Additionally, cloud-based video service Grovo wants to let users know that a great gift for mom is accepting her Facebook friend request.

Several users noticed recently that Facebook is prompting users to buy a Facebook gift for Mother’s Day. Here’s a screenshot, courtesy of reader Dan Wilson:

You may remember that Facebook has also pushed gifts on other special days, such as Valentine’s Day. Facebook is trying to push gifts more often, though giving mom a Facebook gift might be more of an awkward experience, as she would get a notification when it’s purchased.

Grovo had another idea for a great Mother’s Day gift: accepting her friend request.
