It just over a week now since Facebook classified marketplace launched and Iâ€™ve had a little bit of a play and while it has real potential to shake up the online classified market there are still a few problems which arenâ€™t helping the user experience.
Viewing Ads by Network â€“ Every network has its own marketplace, which is a good idea it makes sure you only see the most relevant ads, however this causes a few problems.is. I live in place with at least three big educational institutions plus the cityâ€™s own individual network. Does this mean I have to browse four different networks to look for a car?
Signal to Noise Ratio â€“ One of the best things about Facebook is the amusingly named groups you can join; most of them are pranks just to make an amusing message appear on everyoneâ€™s news feed. The problem is this seems to have infected the marketplace; at the moment some bloke called Tomâ€™s soiled pants are available up for sale for a bargain price on my marketplace. If the Signal to Noise ratio gets too bad it will do the classifieds will end up being useless.
