Very innovative of Facebook to only allow someone to link up their Visa or Mastercard debit cards at this point, tho it's not surprising. The good news is that they have the bitcoin option on the horizon so that's a positive. If we can get the bitcoin tipping on FB thing trending then this entire market will be heading in the right direction in terms of the masses getting the drift.

The article has nothing to do with Bitcoin except that it is mentioned in a badly written paragraph at the end:

Quote
There’s also a possibility that once Facebook will look at using Bitcoin payments during transfers. Thus, Paypal works with Bitcoin via its subsidiary BrainTree. The integration with CoinBase was announced back in September 2014 and was followed by PayPal’s limitations regarding its merchants.

On January 22, 2015 the company wrote in their blog: “Today, our initial integration with Coinbase is complete and we are opening up private beta access to allow merchants in the US to accept bitcoin via v.Zero.”
