Facebook Marketplace tab coming to Android

Have you tried the Facebook Marketplace thingy? The lovely little feature by social media giant Facebook that acts somewhat like Craiglist and many other listing sites, where you post stuffs you want to sell or search for things you will love to buy.

Though the service has been on as far back as 2007, but Facebook never got around to building access to it in their app. That seems to be changing, though, as users are starting to see a new Marketplace tab in the Facebook app.

Many people prefer Facebook Marketplace over Craigslist due to the lack of anonymity, something that cuts down on spam and shadiness associated with most classified or listing sites.

The new tweak and functionality on the Marketplace seems pretty straight forward. An explore tab lets you browse the array of goods being offered, and you can filter your results by entering a search term or changing filters like price, category, and location.

Moving over to the selling tab brings up an interface that asks you what you’re selling, as well as a photo of that item. A buying time is similar, only it’s to post that you’re looking to buy a specific item.

Seems Facebook is moving to corner everything internet. Thought it all looks like Facebook is doing some A/B testing on this feature as not everyone is seeing it. You can check it out on the latest version of the app. MarketPlace apps or Marketplace Page
