FedEx Friends Facebook
NEW YORK (TheStreet) - Another page for the "technology-makes-strange-bedfellows" files. FedEx(FDX) has announced that it's now in cahoots with Facebook(FB) to create something it's calling 'Ship to Friends'.
The idea is to make it easy for you to send a package to one (or many) Facebook friends. So, FedEx has just launched a Ship to Friends app which allows Facebook fans to prepare and pay for a domestic shipment without ever leaving that online environment.
FedEx says using the new app/service is easy, but here's the best part:
"Once a shipment is complete, people have the option to post to their friend's timeline that they're shipping a package to them and can include a customized message," it says. "The app also provides a drop-down menu of Facebook friends to select from as the recipient of the package, making it even easier to ship a package quickly."
FedEx says its new app is available on desktop as well as mobile devices.
