Facebook Marketplace has become the go-to place for selling things online. If you’re looking for a specific item, an alert can help you get a great deal before everyone else. We will show you how to do it.
Setting an alert will allow you to be notified when new items are posted that match your search parameters. You can skip the search process and always know when new articles are published. It is very useful.

First, go to Facebook.com in a desktop browser like Google Chrome. Click the “Market” shortcut in the sidebar or top bar.
Then use the search box to enter what you’re looking for.
Now click the “Notify Me” button below the search bar.
A small popup window will appear. Enter a minimum and maximum price and adjust the search radius if you wish. Click “Create Alert” to finish.
To edit or delete an alert, search again and click “Edit Alert”. You will have the option to adjust the parameters or “Remove Alert”.
That’s all about it! Facebook Marketplace has many advantages over Craigslist, although it’s certainly not perfect. If you make a lot of purchases on Marketplace, you should take advantage of the alert feature.
