One Day, We May Be Able to Make Hotel Reservations on Facebook

According to a report at Inc.com, Facebook is adding PayPal to its service. Both Facebook advertisers and users will be able to process payments on Facebook with PayPal.

In November 2009, Sheraton Hotels & Resorts launched a new website that embeds with social networking tools. Visitors can link their Facebook account in Sheraton’s website and share their Sheraton stories in both platforms. Not every hotel company links Facebook with its website yet, but many of them have a Facebook page. For example, as of 1:35pm on 02/24/10, Holiday Inn has 5,553 fans; Marriott has 2,252; Sheraton has 965; the list can go on. Now that people can make payments with PayPal on Facebook, it is possible that we may be able to make hotel reservations directly on Facebook in the near future. Do you agree?
