Facebook Launches Market Place: Where You Can Buy & Sell Any Items

Facebook has gone
beyond just a social media where you chat and interact with like minded people but
now, it has launched its own online market place where you can buy and sell any
item to people within your community.

According to Facebook Project Manager Bowen Pan, up
to 450 million people already use Facebook to buy and sell used goods every
month, mainly through its groups feature. With Marketplace, Facebook is now
giving users a more formal process to conduct these exchanges.
Facebook Market place is a destination for people to find—and make
offers for—items directly through Facebook’s mobile app. A button for
Marketplace will replace the Messenger icon in the bottom center of the app.
In other words, what you can do on Jiji OLX etc you can now do on
Facebook market place. But it’s important to note that  in terms of safety and financial security,
Facebook does not have the same kinds of protections or guarantees as eBay. All
sales are handled offline and by users themselves.
How Do I Sell Items on Facebook Market Place?
Take a photo
of your item, or add it from your camera roll
Enter a
product name, description and price
Confirm your
location and select a category
Marketplace will be rolling out to everyone over 18 years old in
the US, UK, Australia, and New Zealand on the Facebook app for iPhone and
Android. Subsequently, it will be expanded to other countries of the world.
