Posted on July 9, 2010 by


In an attempt to boost sales and generate more revenues, FaceBook is all set to have a deal with a Malaysian company. After the deal is finalized the company will be able to sell virtual goods, purchasing which, people could play games on the official FB website.

In an interview FB spokesman Nor said “Asia has a huge gaming community, and it’s typically young people. The penetration for credit cards is very low… So the developers are not making money and missing this opportunity.”

With FB keen on making some real money targeting Asia, it will sell the rights to MOL, which is an electronic payments company, to market and offer online currency through 7-Eleven stores, Internet cafes and online banks in five Southeast Asian countries, India, Australia and New Zealand.

The target is to sell the credits to the young gamers who don’t have credit cards to buy on credit but can make a purchase in cash. The FB director of business and corporate development head Vaughan Smith, said that the company views this agreement as an major opportunity to widen its business opportunities across Asia.
