Facebook Marketplace is Facebook's offering for users who want to post their own items
for sale, and users who want to search through those items to see if there's anything they
want to buy.
Facebook makes it easy to list everything on the service from your smaller items such
as your child's old toys or clothes, to larger items such as a car or a house; you can even
list houses for rent and jobs.
Big advantages that Facebook Marketplace has over other similar buy and sell services,
such as Craigslist, is the ability to see publicly available information in the profile
of the buyer or seller to help determine if you want to do business with them, to interact
with a buyer or seller through Facebook Messenger, easy posting and searching, and the ability
to rate and see ratings for buyers and sellers.
