The marketplace is more of a formal arrangement of something that already takes place quite a bit on Facebook. That being said, it is a free application that is verified officially by Facebook. This official sanctioning essentially means that this Facebook app is easy to use, effective and free. You can count on all of those things and more when you use the Marketplace.
The interface for Marketplace is very similar to any other point and click application that you use on Facebook. There are going to be many screens that you have to read through, but all of those screens exist within the overall Facebook interface. That means that reading through everything should be relatively easy for you to do.
Interacting with Marketplace follows the same general level of ease that the interface has. When you interact with this application, you do so through pointing and clicking with your mouse. If you want to get in touch with someone else that is active on the marketplace there might also be some typing involved. However, since browsing is the majority of what takes place on the Marketplace, pointing and clicking with the mouse is really the full extent of what you are going to have to deal with.
Utility and Productivity
The basic premise of the Marketplace app is to take all of the people that use Facebook and give them a chance to exchange merchandise with each other. As a member of the Marketplace, you have the ability to buy, sell and trade. You also have the ability to give and ask for items in the absence of money. Finally, the Marketplace also gives you the chance to sell items and have the proceeds go directly to charity.
In the end, the main categories are items for sale, housing, vehicles and jobs. These are the main things that people purchase in life and for that reason Marketplace has the ability to help you get exactly what you want in terms of tangible items. That is what makes this such a valuable application to the average Facebook user.
Marketplace is an impressive application and it will continue to get more impressive as more people begin to interact with it. Any Facebook app that gets better as it is used by more people is an app that will get a higher score from us as a result. In the end, we awarded this app a score of 8.5 out of 10.
