It Didn’t Take Long for Facebook Marketplace to Get Weird

Yesterday, Facebook launched its newest feature called Marketplace — a direct competitor to the widely popular Craigslist. The idea was to take the “buy and sell” groups that 450 million users are already using and create a whole new tab in the app for peer-to-peer shopping.

Much like Craigslist, the idea was to create a shared space for people to buy and sell goods in an easy to use, safe environment. And much like Craigslist, that didn’t last long. Within a day, the Marketplace was flooded with ads for drugs, sex, animals, and a number of other weird things that are supposed to be banned from the app.
