And they launch with a promise:

First 20,000 businesses to sign up for new service get $100 Facebook Ads credit

But wait, there’s more!

The Visa Business Network, an application built on Facebook to help companies network and drive new business — while generating $2 million in advertising revenue for Facebook Inc.

The new Visa application will also allow small business owners to use social networking techniques to find and connect with peers and potential advisers from the 80,000 colleagues already using Facebook, Visa said.

And in a cool twist, Visa partnered with Google so that network users will be able to access Google Docs, Google Sites and Google Calendar applications from within Facebook. Neato, daddy-o!
