In recent times, Facebook groups are being extensively used for businesses other than connecting with people. Many groups help local communities connect with one another and also conduct businesses.
With the launch of ‘Marketplace’, Facebook is making it easier to discover, buy and sell. You can explore it by tapping the shop icon at the bottom of the app. Features you must know:
– Since it is for local communities, it helps you discover various items that have been listed in your nearby locality. Once you shortlist the item you want to buy, you can directly message the seller
– Posting items for sale just got easier. All you have to do is take a picture, add product name, details and price. You have to confirm your location and make the posting
Marketplace will be rolled out to above 18-year-olds in US, UK, New Zealand and Australia. With time it will be expanded to other countries.
