Sending money to a friend in need is as easy as a click on your Facebook page.
Facebook announced users can now send money directly to their friends over Facebook Messenger. To send money, users just tap the dollar sign button at the bottom of a messenger conversation and enter an amount. After clicking pay, the money is transferred. A pin number can be added for extra security. The service is free, but a debit card is required the first time it is used. The service is only meant for sending money between friends. Facebook said it cannot be used by businesses.
