The new service will take the "digital" out of "digital photography" for a price
Is sharing your photos with friends via Facebook just not tangible enough for you? The social network is looking to add some real-world tactility to your snapshots with a new feature that'll soon let you send them to people as physical postcards. You remember them, right?
A select group of Facebook users — maybe even you! — can now find a new option when looking at photos called "mail a postcard." Once the desired photo is selected, it becomes one side of the card, and you have the ability to enter personalized text on the other. You can then address it from memory or use an option to ask your recipients for their physical mailing addresses.
Sending postcards this way isn't free, but Facebook hasn't decided exactly how much the feature will cost when it's finally rolled out to all of its users. It's reportedly testing a variety of price points now, so hopefully we'll hear more about this novel feature soon.
