Busy week for Facebook. They just announced Marketplace on Monday. For a while Facebook’s been the best event discovery platform but I always felt the events section within the app was buried and could be improved. Eager to play with this.

@rrhoover Becoming the everything app like WeChat is a smart play on Facebook's part. Busting out the features in to other apps is great too
@rrhoover Thought I read the Marketplace has been around for awhile??
@pnkheelspnktrk true, they've been testing it for a while but just announced and rolled out to a much wider population.
@pnkheelspnktrk @rrhoover It had been on my screen for a pretty long time. I assumed everyone had it. For them to be testing it on a narrow group, there are a lot of sellers already using it.

Any Android release planned ?
@valdecarpentrie Honestly, it doesn't really make sense for companies like Facebook to make iOS only/first apps and features when almost 9 out of 10 people in the world use Android. Glad Google is seeing the Indian market as something to cater to finally though.
@thepranavigator @valdecarpentrie almost 9 out of 10? Don't think that's correct
@bentossell @valdecarpentrie I was going to say 3 out of 4, but a quick Google search led me to this: http://www.idc.com/prodserv/smar...
@thepranavigator @valdecarpentrie many diff stats everywhere I guess... source: https://www.netmarketshare.com/o...
@bentossell @thepranavigator well... As long as I know IDC is one of the best sources about that kind of topic
