Selling on our Facebook Page
Since the inception of the UsedEverywhere Facebook Page there have been people posting their goods for sale on our wall. Fair enough, I say. We’re an online classifieds site, so why wouldn’t you be able to hawk your wares wherever we are on the net?
There are a few complications however, when it comes to posting on Facebook as opposed to your local Used site. For example, when you post to one of our sites, you are bound by our ad placing requirements. In other words, we won’t let you post an ad if you don’t include the necessary information (ie: price, location). On Facebook, you can post whatever you want in whatever format you want. What we’ve seen so far is that a lot of people are forgetting to post their price and/or location, which sort of defeats the point, don’t you think?
Another concern is that our Facebook Page is for everyone from Victoria to Ottawa, from the U.K. to Australia. Even though there is a select group of people from your city that may be interested in what you have to offer, there are a lot of people who aren’t. With all of this in mind, we need your help to decide how to handle all of these ads. Here are the options that we’ve come up with. Let us know what your vote goes to in the comments below.
Option 1) Allow ads that include an item description, location, and price, while deleting ads that are incomplete or that contain personal information such as phone numbers and/or email addresses (just looking out for you!).
Option 2) Delete all ads posted to our Facebook Page. No exceptions.
Option 3) Don’t mess with it. People will post what they want to post and ignore what they want to ignore.
Your opinion matter. Post it in the comments section!
