Facebook Marketplace Gets Handy – The Network Now Has Tools To Find Home Help

Posted by at 7:24 am on May 23, 2018

 

Facebook today made it easier to find a local plumber, electrician, or house cleaner. The social network says people in the U.S. are constantly asking friends for recommendations on home services providers.

Facebook worked with companies such as HomeAdviser, Porch, and Handy to add home services recommendations to Facebook Marketplace. With this new tool, people can search through hundreds of thousands of professionals around the country, view credentials and ratings, describe projects, solicit quotes from multiple pros at once, and communicate with contractors via Messenger.

Facebook say the new service is rolling out to Marketplace across the U.S. over the next few weeks. Marketplace is available in the Facebook mobile app and online.
