Blizzard announced a slew of new social features coming to Battle.net including groups, avatars, profiles, and more.

Among the new improvements is player-to-player gifting. The shop tab allows you to"select a gifting-enabled item such as Hearthstone card packs" and choose who you'd like to send it to.

When someone sends you a gift, "the upper right of the app" lights up, letting you know someone thinks you are special.

Also coming to Battle.net are groups, helping you find and interact with like-minded users, as well new profiles and avatars. All of the social features are found in the new Social tab of the Blizzard.net app.

Blizzard is also letting you "appear offline" with the new update. As the name suggests, you merely appear offline, while in actuality, you are playing Blizzard games in quiet desolation.
