With the improvements in marketing through social media promotion, business has been using Facebook and other social media platforms for their promotion. With the new feature, Facebook hopes that they could establish direct contact with their customers and thereby build a healthy relationship between clients. Facebook Market Place is an easy and more convenient way of buying and selling in pages. One can find out the item/ service to buy/obtain or sell/render either by simply searching or by looking at the list of items on the page. It is available in both iOs and Android platforms.
