Facebook launches ‘business cards’ for users

Facebook has teamed up with British business card maker, Moo, to offer 200,000 users free arty cards based on their user profiles.

Every ‘Facebook Card’ is made from a set template which will take a user’s profile picture as the image and glean the rest of a members’ personal details from their description on the site.

The first 200,000 users to sign up to the new scheme will receive a bundle of 50 free personalised cards, which means 10 million cards in total will be given away over a short period of time.

To apply for the first official Facebook Card, users need to click on ‘About’ in the their basic information section on the new Timeline profile page and then scroll down to ‘Contact Info’ and hover the mouse over a little business card icon – which should then direct you to Moo. The first 50,000 users will receive the cards free of shipping costs, but thereafter, a small fee will be charged.

“MOO.com is very excited to announce this integration with Facebook to provide a revolutionary new customer experience that brings together Facebook Timeline with MOO’s high-quality printed products,” said Moo chief executive and founder Richard Moross.

The offer is only available to those users who have downloaded ‘Timeline’, the site’s new type of profile which allows users to tell the story of their life on a single page.
