Have you seen Marketplace yet? marketplace

Facebook started rolling out Marketplace this week.

These platforms are rampant! I just signed up with www.nextdoor.com – a neighborhood chat, sell, inform. Pretty cool because it is specifically for your neighborhood, which is great for events. nextdoor


Marketplace allows buying and selling physical items in your neighborhood. They have had some unusual offerings already and will have to reign in their boundaries to avoid sexual services and live pythons.

“As we expanded Marketplace access, we encountered a technical issue that prevented our reviewing system from identifying some posts that violated our Commerce Policies and Community Standards,” reads an emailed statement from Facebook Director of Product Management Mary Ku. “As a result, certain posts with content that violated our policies were made visible to people visiting Marketplace. We are working to fix the problem and will be closely monitoring our systems to ensure we are properly identifying and removing violations before giving more people access to Marketplace. We apologize for this issue.”

I wish them well and of course all the best to you.
