Facebook's latest update to its mobile app is meant to allow the social network's users to purchase physical goods as gifts from within the app.

The gifting feature adds an icon to users' pages to allow friends to purchase physical items to be shipped to the recipient. Though the notes provided with the app's update indicate the feature is live, Facebook still lists the feature as “coming soon” and the gifting icon isn't yet evident on users' Facebook pages.
