Have you ever been stupid enough to buy any Facebook Credits? No? Well, you can stop reading this then - unless you like getting peeved at things to make you feel alive.

Anyway, Facebook Credits, the virtual currency used on the social networking site, are going to become available as a physical gift card form across the UK this week. Tesco and GAME have signed up to sell the credits which can be used to buy games and apps on Facebook.

There are more than 200 apps and games that accept the new currency form, the most notable being (the insanely irritating) Farmville.

You can only use them on Facebook currently, but Deborah Liu, manager of product marketing for Facebook Credits and games at Facebook, has expressed her desire to see them used elsewhere with the help of Facebook Connect.

“Someday it’s something that we would consider,” she said, “but there’s a lot that we want to do on Facebook.com for now.”

You'll be able to buy Facebook Credits as gift cards for £5, £10 and £25.

    Looking at some of your online names I would bet a good deal of money that you are NEDS...I will explain that to you simple people, it stands for Non Educated Delinquents. Another sad day for our education system *sigh* :D
