Facebook is releasing a feature called Marketplace that lets users post items for sale and shop for things to buy, like they can on Craigslist.

Facebook started a similar service in 2007, but it never took off. Things may be different this time.

The old Marketplace worked only on computers and the majority of Facebook’s users are now on mobile devices, which Craigslist doesn’t make an application for.
