Facebook Users Can Now Schedule Gifts

Facebook added the ability for users to schedule Gifts up to two weeks in advance, enabling them to choose Gifts, fill out the cards, and pay in advance.

Sister blog Inside Facebook reported on the new feature, saying that previously, recipients of Gifts would receive notifications immediately.

Inside Facebook also noted that deliveries of Gifts cannot be scheduled, as recipients provide their addresses upon responding to notifications.

Readers: Does this new feature add to the convenience of Gifts?
