I don't know about your area and country but here Facebook groups for selling and buying stuff are becoming more and more popular. They tend to develop in a pretty natural way, for example, some people want organic grown meat and vegetables and they create a group for this to find the best places to purchase such food. In no time sellers appear and a whole natural marketplace develops on that group.
This leaves Facebook with a rather very interesting opportunity: the idea of developing its own marketplace. And guess what? They are going to develop that very same thing!
Here you have it, the Facebook Marketplace:
Looks cool right? I bet this will put tons of general marketplace websites niches out of business. I'm already thinking of ways to publish my own freelance services on such Facebook marketplaces.
You can find Facebook published selling objects close to you:
As soon as you figure out what you want to buy you can contact the seller directly on Facebook and set up a time a place for the actual transfer to take place:
The whole process will be very easy if you think about it, all you need is the Facebook app on your phone and making a product description as well as taking pictures of the actual product is just minutes away.
Apparently, the Facebook marketplace won't be available for the entire world right away but it will be available in the following days for the USA, New Zealand, Australia and United Kingdom.
What do you think? Are you going to use Facebook Marketplace?
