HOW TO SELL STUFF ON FACEBOOK

Classified Ads

The most popular way to sell stuff on Facebook is to use “Marketplace,” powered by Oodle.com. Go to Oodle and click “post an ad.” Then decide if you want your listing to also appear on MySpace, Twitter, and many others.

Categories include: “Community,” “For Rent,” “Items for Sale,” “Housing,”  “Jobs,” “Pets,” and “Vehicles.” The process is nearly automatic. Choose your category, upload a photo, name your price and you’re done.

  1. J&B, Pancho just downloaded the Audacity program, for musician’s home studios & can’t believe it’s FREE after spending for Cakewalk which was difficult to use. He’s already recorded his own tracks to solo over, excellent for practicing. I’m looking into the LP to CD from Audio-Technica, as you know I now have hundreds of LP’s to convert (courtesy of J.
