Etsy Finds Gift Recommendations For Your Facebook Friends

Etsy’s online recommendation tool, ‘Gift Ideas for Facebook Friends‘, provides you with a list of suggested items that relate to the likes and interests of your friends on the social network.

To find gift ideas, you need to grant Etsy permissions to access your Facebook information and then select the friend you want recommendations for by browsing your list or typing their name in the search box. Etsy will display suggested items based on information from your friend’s Facebook profile. You can click the arrow buttons to see more items relating to a particular interest and you can filter the results by price.

Etsy doesn’t share your information with Facebook and won’t post anything to your wall unless you ask it to, so it doesn’t spoil the surprise by letting your friends know you’re shopping for them. The Gift Ideas tool only works well if your friends have made their likes and interests public on Facebook. If their details are private or they haven’t filled in much information on their profile, it’s likely that Etsy won’t be able to return any recommendations.
