Facebook Testing “Local Market” Feature

Facebook is testing a “local market” feature. Any legitimate competition with Craigslist is all right with me. “A number of Facebook users recently reported seeing a new feature called ‘Local Market’ appearing briefly in their Facebook iPhone app, sometimes in place of the “Messenger” button at the bottom center of the screen. The feature, which is only in testing but not broadly distributed, is a more structured marketplace aimed at buyers and sellers, allowing Facebook users to browse through or post items to sell across a variety of product categories like autos, appliances, furniture, clothing, household, kids, books, and much more.”
