Facebook chumps can now send money to other Facebook chumps via the free content ad network's Messenger app.
The company confirmed on Monday that the new peer-to-peer feature would be deployed initially in the US over the next few months.
Facebook's money-transfer service offers to retain a user's Visa or MasterCard debit card information, which the Mark Zuckerberg-run firm promises to store securely on its vast database. It said:
These payment systems are kept in a secured environment that is separate from other parts of the Facebook network and that receive additional monitoring and control. A team of anti-fraud specialists monitor for suspicious purchase activity to help keep accounts safe.
