Facebook Marketplace Adds Friends Tab

Today we launched the Friends Tab on Facebook Marketplace, making it even
easier to see what your friends are buying, selling — or giving away.

For example, I’m helping my cousin find a place to live in Palo Alto. Now, I can easily browse Facebook Marketplace to see which of my friends – or friends of friends -have posted a room for rent in the area. I quickly find that my friend Christine is renting out a room in her townhouse.

I also see the comment thread of questions and answers about the place, giving me
some additional background about the room.  Because I know Christine and
her husband, I feel completely at ease recommending the room to my cousin.

Christine can also feel at ease because she knows me – and knows enough about
my cousin to know that he’ll be a great fit in their home.
