Facebook finds its (Market)place

Move the hell over Craigslist! Forget you, silly paper classified ads!

Facebook Marketplace is here.

These crafty little ads are nothing new, really. Most students have been using Facebook's "Share" or "Events" feature to market their old books, used couches and even cute dogs. Now Facebook has made space for users to do this freely - and with pictures.
