Facebook Testing ‘Buy Tickets’ Button for Concerts


Facebook is testing a way for its users to rock out with their, um, devices out.

The social network confirmed to BuzzFeed News that it is testing a “Buy Tickets” call-to-action button, which would enable users to buy concert tickets without leaving Facebook, with the tickets to be picked up at venues’ will-call windows.

Facebook told BuzzFeed News fulfillment will be the responsibility of third-parties, adding that it is not taking a cut of ticket prices.

The pilot test is proceeding “with a small group of independent venues, artists and event promoters in the San Francisco Bay area,” Facebook told BuzzFeed News.
