Facebook launch new payment system ‘Facebook Pay’

…available across Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp, and it’s designed to facilitate payments across Facebook’s popular social networks and apps.

If there were ever a payment system that I was least inclined to use this would be it.

I have no doubt the Apple Pay/Venmo combatant will be popular but all I can think of is Facebook in parallel to E-Corp from Mr. Robot and this being an in-roads to roll out their Libra crypto should it ever get off the ground.

Hard pass from me.
