Facebook Marketplace not working? Want to know what this is all about and what you can do about it? So, to start with, the Marketplace is an extension of Facebook’s social networking platform that allows users to buy and sell items ranging from household appliances to industrial machinery. It was incorporated into Facebook to facilitate e-commerce among the platform’s members by connecting buyers and sellers through a common ground.

People who want to sell their original goods, spare parts, or other items can create a public listing on Facebook/Meta Marketplace.
