Facebook say WHAT?

Expect more explosions and forbidden love involved in my future blog posts. That was a reader suggestion submitted by Charlotte and I think it will really help out my e-traffic to the site. In the meantime, you’ll have to settle for me posting little discoveries that make me say “WHAT?” to myself.

For example- are you familiar with the social networking utility “Facebook?” I have a Facebook page. For me personally, my preference of Facebook to MySpace changes weekly depending on my mood. But whenever you log into Facebook, there a page with a “News Feed” that updates you on what all your Facebook friends are up to. Like what they had for dinner the night before, what they wore last Tuesday and whatever their self-proclaimed and arbitrary “status” is.

I just noticed, like two weeks ago, they implemented a “Facebook Marketplace.” It’s basically Facebook classified ads based on your “Network” (mine is Washington, DC…but it can also be your school or office I guess). Everytime I log in, there is a new featured "Facebook Marketplace" item listed on my newsfeed page. Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve seen featured an apartment, a Nintendo Wii, baseball tickets…very similar to things you would find on eBay, or Craigslist in the non-seedy sections.

Until yesterday.

The Facebook marketplace feature can be found in the righthand column, about halfway down the page. Click on the picture below to enlarge it and check out the item. You might be interested:
