Facebook Marketplace Goes Wrong: Sex, Guns and Baby Hedgehogs - The New York Times

Not off to a great start, at least PR-wise

"On Monday morning, Facebook introduced Marketplace, a new section on its mobile app that allowed its users to buy and sell things to their friends and to strangers.

By the evening, the social giant was apologizing for an issue with the section, which featured some posts that would not have been out of place on the online black market Silk Road, which was shut down by the F.B.I. in 2013.

Illegal drugs. Dogs. Guns. Sexual services. Baby hedgehogs. Selling all of these items and services on Facebook goes against the site’s commerce policy. And all of them were available on Marketplace on Monday."
