As Facebook becoming the one and only place where many people spend most of their time, its effort to transform News Feed into a storefront is once again raising up.
Facebook is in the opening tiers of testing a feature- “Local Market”.
Abs Elmaz, Reader of Social House Media shared the screenshots with SocialTimes, informing about “Local Market” icon.
The feature took the place of icon for messages at the bottom of Fb software.
These are the latest steps Facebook has taken in the retail area. The company has tested “buy” buttons already in its app allowing users to buy products directly without leaving.
It also rolled out “Shop” sections on small businesses’ pages.
“On Facebook we’ve seen that people are coming to our platform not only to connect with friends and family but also with products and brands,” the company said in a blog post. Nearly half of people come to Facebook to actively look for products, the company said.
Elmaz, residing in Melbourne, Australia, brought that clicking “sell” said that the function was no longer to be had in his area once but he stated that every proof of “Local Market” has vanished from his app now.
