FaceBook Marketplace, the good the bad, general idiots V.2
The idiosyncrasies of Kijiii mostly are gone and a new breed of people are giving this experience a different twist.
Now that you know someone's name it makes people a tad more accountable and respectful and tactful, but not fully.
Two aspects of this system I wanted to mention:
The activity icon. You can see that they've read your reply, without responding for a day...or you can see that though they've messaged you for the item and you've replied...that it's just sitting there unread...perpetually. Where did they go? Just vanished? No longer interested? Say so. So funny. Or you have an exchange, they say they want to come....then poof.
The best idiosyncrasy I find is marketplace "rating". You don't need an actual transaction to leave a rating. I got a neg because the idiot offered a fourth of my list price and I told them if they couldn't afford it, to go to goodwill to find it cheaper there, Lol., so they were butthurt that I was "rude". Sorry I didn't coddle & reward you for being a lowballer.
LOL. Yeah, that's not going to be abused.
The rating is more of a gauge of your diplomacy than effective selling measure. 10years on RFD, 180 deals 100%+. 2 months on Facebook and already 1 negative. Lol.

Kijiji & FB Marketplace trash are what put a smile on my face each day
