FACEBOOK Marketplace

Right now my favorite way to search for USED items like fitness equipment and bike gear is to search using Facebook Marketplace.

There are 2 main reasons.

  • View A Person’s Account: You can usually check out the person’s account to see if they look shady or not. With Craigslist you usually don’t have that option.
  • Facebook Messenger: When dealing with people via Facebook Marketplace, the Facebook messenger app can really help with the communication and speed of replies. With Craigslist you are usually just replying via email, so the transactions often take a bit more time.
