There is a rumor out now that Facebook has, or is, implementing Bitcoin payments on their advertising platform. The image below was sent to Bitcoinboard this morning by an employee of Facebook in Netherlands who is participating in the test:
There is an option there to pay with Bitcoins on the Facebook Payment page, however, I can not personally confirm if this is legit or modified by someone else.
At this moment you can pay for advertising with a Creditcard, Paypal and FB Ad coupons. It is not yet clear when the option to pay with Bitcoins becomes available for the public, but this confirms that they are at least very interested in the crypto currency, and willing to integrate it into their website. If the company currently holds Bitcoins or is actively buying them is unclear. Last year a former Facebook executive said in an interview that he had BTC & had invested a lot in it. He even went as far as calling it a “Gold 2.0″.
This story may be false, but we will follow it and see if anyone can confirm or discard it.
Here you can watch the video interview:
