I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but Facebook is about the only social network I can stand. (Aw, you saw through me. This is a shill to get you to add me as a friend on Facebookâ€”Jordan F McCollum.)
Okay, so there was some news that brought this on. Facebook has traditionally featured few advertisements. On my alma mater’s network, there was usually an ad running in the sidebar, called a “flyer,” often placed by a student. Now they’ve made it easier for students to sell things through their site by partnering with Oodle to provide classifieds. Oodle already featured the ability categorize classifieds by college, it seems like a partnership with Facebook, which was once exclusively for college & high school students, was quite natural.
