Is there a legitimate security problem with Facebook Marketplace or are the objections to links on that site a matter of individual preference?

I'm not sure if there's a security risk or not. I have however sold more things on FB Marketplace than CL recently.

I've done pretty well on it also. There's a lot of PIA "is this still available" replies that go nowhere but the cash has cleared immediately when I make a sale.

A number of people just have absolutely no desire to ever, ever be on FB. Did I mention EVER?

Copy that. It's a personal preference.

Yeah, that ^^^^ I was on it once but I have no desire to see pictures of my cousin's dinner or give more people I don't really like anyway a platform for their wacko political or religious beliefs. I find Instagram to be better since I'm in to photography but I constantly have to battle the barrage of marketing/advertising and other typical social media crap (as stated above about Facebook).

I've been told by at least 5 people lately that FB Marketplace is really good, better than CL. A CL junkie like me would probably really like it but I'm not getting ready to get back on FB to see it.

It’s de rigueur to shun Facebook, and 86Scotty is always on top of all current trends.

Smacks of censorship.

Iíve been a long-time Craigslist fan, but have had good luck on FB Marketplace. Stuff sells quickly and people actually show up. I think itís because the trust and accountability factor is higher since you can see a real name and how long they have been on Facebook, etc.

The ďIs it still for saleĒ emails are annoying, and itís because thatís the default message that FB sends when you click the ďinterestedĒ reply button, unless you customize your reply. Itís stupid.
