    New Features in Facebook Groups to Improve the Way People Buy and Sell


    Starting today, Facebook?s For Sale Groups will have improved features for buying and selling.

    For Sale Group members can now choose the Sell feature when creating a
    post. You can add a description to what you?re selling, include a price
    and set a pick-up/delivery location.

    For anyone that has been following any of my other Threads will see how this is nice to see Facebook taking notice to these groups that people are starting to use to make money without messing things up. Here's the other thread about making money using Facebook Groups. http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...od-i-made-875-cash-1-week-using-facebook.html

    You can also see the whole FB post at their link below.

    I run a few big groups and this feature is great. I hope they implement better admin controls though, the way it is now kind of sucks because on rogue admin can destroy a group.

    Yes I thought so. It's nothing too major but it's a start. I just hope FB doesn't end up going to far and ruining it for all of us making money. That's why it's always smart to get in early while the fires hot.

    Your Welcome I guess.lol. I'm sure you have your own business that your doing but just some advice for everyone out there only focused on one thing.... As the saying goes "don't put all your eggs in one basket" I would say to stay focused enough on 1 thing and as soon as you get the hang of it move on to the next thing while still building the first. For me I have numerous business strategies in place so that if even 3 were to change I would still be making enough to sustain my life full time.

    I run a few big groups and this feature is great. I wish they apply better administration manages though, the way it is now type of absorbs because on fake administration can eliminate a team.
