Illustration for article titled Facebooks Gross Pinterest-Like Feature Is Here to Take Your Dollars

Facebook is testing its own version of Pinterest. It's called "Facebook Collections." It adds clickable buttons to posts about products from retailers, which then adds it to a personalized page that reminds you to buy it later. Ugh.

AllFacebook reports the Facebook Collections feature has been enabled for several retailers, including Pottery Barn. A collection page looks like a photo album, but behaves something like Amazon's wish list—users can keep track of objects they'd like to buy.


We've known this type of funcitonality was coming ever since Facebook started testing a Want button over the summer. And yes, it's Facebook's job to make money, but we can't help but wish that everything online didn't turn into a massive opportunity to sell us crap. [All Facebook via Ubergizmo]
