Last week, Facebook announced that it will be posting available housing for rent on its Marketplace platform. As Facebook has begun to take on Craigslist by offering items for sale in its Marketplace, it will now compete with Craigslist on the housing front as well. The platform allows any user, property manager, or broker alike to post listings and use 360 degree photos to provide a virtual tour while also pulling listings from Apartment List and Zumper. 

This announcement comes as Facebook seeks to keep users on the app longer. Renters will now be able to conveniently search from the app based on location, size, price, number of beds/baths, and if the property is pet-friendly. By creating an e-commerce hub where users can find food, furniture, used cars, even jobs, now it's adding housing to the mix!
