Facebook hasn't officially said it's testing a ticketing option for events on its site, but according to one Israeli social media firm, that's exactly what's happening. 

Blink first spotted the "Buy Tickets" option on some events, reports Web Pro News via All Facebook. However, it linked to a third-party website, which means Facebook isn't processing payments, at least not yet. 

Whether the rumor is true remains to be seen, but it wouldn't be a stretch given Facebook's recent foray into the gift card industry, or its other attempts to put a dollar sign in front of its users, as Mashable recently highlighted.
