Facebook Opens Marketplace
Facebook is to take on e-commerce giants, such as Ebay and similar personal listing websites, with the launch of their new ‘Marketplace’ facility built right into the Facebook interface.
The familiar ‘Messenger’ icon at the bottom-centre of the mobile app will be replaced with a new Marketplace button over the next few days in the US, UK, Australia and New Zealand.
This will open up a selection of items Facebook thinks you’ll be interested in buying.
If you’ve used eBay or Gumtree to buy and sell goods, then you should feel right at home with Marketplace, which is a totally a free service.
Rob Triggs of Android Authority takes a closer look at how the Marketplace option will work.
