Facebook Announces Marketplace

Facebook has announced the launch of “Marketplace”, an online extension of social network experience wherein people can join with each other to discover, buy and sell items. This provides a more efficient approach for people to quickly list the products that they want to sell or are interested in buying.

The discover suggestions are focused on the community while taking into account the distance to the seller. The service is presently limited to Android and iOS users over 18-years-old of age in USA, UK, Australia and New Zealand. The company has announced a gradual rollout of the service to additional countries as announced on the Facebook Newsroom post.

Marketplace offers an instinctive design to make posting items for sale easier. To add an item to market for sale, you just have to click or upload the image of the item, add product name, description and price including the location and category of the listing. The company is now working on the desktop version of the Facebook website, and it will reach in coming months.
