Facebook is introducing a new way for people in the US to use Marketplace to find the right professional for the job, starting with home services.
Facebook is working with Handy, HomeAdvisor and Porch, in order to provide users with an all-in-one place to complete their next home project. Marketplace will offer hundreds of thousands of professionals across the US. The service will include professionals' ratings, reviews, credentials and location. Users will be able to describe the project they need help and send their requests to multiple professionals at once. Communication with service professionals will be immediate through Messenger.
The new service begins rolling out today, and it will be available across the US over the coming weeks.
