Facebook Rolls Out Marketplace. On Monday, Facebook unveiled Marketplace which could give eBay and Craigslist a run for its money. This new feature is available now for the Facebook app and rolling out to launch a desktop version in the coming month. Facebook is hoping that users will spend more time with its various services and not take a transaction cost. When you tab on the Marketplace icon, you can see photos of products that have been recently listed and those that are near you. Being a user of both Craiglist and now Facebook, I like the interface, mapping and the ability to stay within the Facebook app.
Keeping eMail Customers Engaged with Targeting. What do you do every morning when you wake up and what do you do every evening before you go to bed? The majority of you will check your eMail.

Targeting the individual with personalized messages and offering preference centers are ways to give voice back to the customer.
