    Facebook is reportedly close to launching its own e-wallet service.Facebook is currently working with regulators in Ireland to gain approval for a service that would let its users store money on their social accounts and use it for transactions on the Web and via smartphones, Financial Times reported on Sunday, citing people familiar with the social network's plans. Ireland is "only weeks away" appointing Facebook to handle electronic money, or "e-money," that can be used throughout Europe, according to Financial Times.The nascent battle for e-wallet supremacy is expected to be a long and bitter one. Several prominent companies -- including Google, wireless carriers, PayPal, and others -- are trying to become the dominant digital force for consumers who want repositories to store and exchange money.

    I really hope FB's eWallet grows as big as PayPal. So we may make FB ad accs easier, no (probably) acc limiting - what PP loves to do.

    Thanks

    Phuck FB I don't trust them at all...
    They couldn't even protect Zuckerberg's profile.
    Only a dumb-a$$ would trust them with their money (let alone their personal profile...)
