Here's how to make your Facebook Marketplace listings popFacebook wants to get into the local buying-and-selling game with its new mobile classifieds section, Facebook Marketplace. The new Facebook Marketplace -- not to be confused with the old Facebook Marketplace -- lets you put up Craigslist-like ads for everything from furniture and clothing to cars and housing. The new Facebook Marketplace lets you sell to anyone (well, anyone within 100 miles of you), rather than limiting you to friends or group members.
Facebook Marketplace is similar to Craigslist: It's a venue, not a facilitator, and the details of any sales (including price, shipping and other logistics) are between the buyer and the seller. Facebook doesn't take a cut of the profits, nor does it offer protection for either party -- like Ebay does -- but it is slightly more credible than Craigslist because it's linked to your Facebook account.
