Facebook (FB -1%) might be on the verge of becoming an online ticket seller: screenshots posted by Israeli social media site Blink show a "Buy Tickets" button that links to 3rd-party sites, and The Next Web has detected code indicating a ticket-buying solution. From the looks of things, Facebook is planning to partner with incumbents such as Ticketmaster (LYV) and StubHub (EBAY), rather than compete head-on. Investors have long been hoping Facebook will turn e-commerce referral traffic into a major revenue source.

  • The sky's the limit for FB and its ONE BILLION USERS.

  • Not the same as ONE BILLION BUYERS! If FB becomes any more diversified, it'll drop out of sight!

  • I think Redbox is starting to kick Ticketmaster, and StubHubs butt! If they do not lower their surcharges,and convenience fees they will not survive...even with a Facebook connection.
